I was driving from the publisher’s offices in Indiana back to New York City, when I turned on the TV news in my motel. The news reporter covered a story about a bridge. Because so many people were jumping off the bridge to their death, should the bridge have netting?
Like the news station taking action to prevent suicide, I wrote this book to prevent suicide. Please read the book yourself, and provide a copy to someone who needs encouragement. Think Hope Live is worth reading, even if just for the recipes.
A special non-dairy ice cream recipe is included, as well as a recipe for beet soup, and directions on preparing a blender drink using grapefruit.
This book is not intended to provide medical advice or diagnose, cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent any disease. Think Hope Live does not replace your psychiatrist, physician, and pharmacist.
THINK HOPE LIVE is an easy read, especially the chapter on Suicide Alertness (Canadian Mental Health Association), so that everyone can be alert to someone at risk of suicide. Interviews with suicide survivors are included. There is a chapter addressing physician-assisted end of life, as well as a chapter for anyone who has lost the will to live.
