Screaming in Silence: Suicide, Attempted Suicide and Self-Harm Recovery

Screaming in Silence: Suicide, Attempted Suicide and Self-Harm Recovery

Description

A serious pro-survival, pro-recovery book, written because I have been the survivor of many suicide attempts, not to forget also the person left behind after actual suicides, and the victim of serious self-harm in myself and those I love. I haven’t attempted suicide or self-harmed for 8 years and I don’t plan to do so again, but I always have my plan to hand.

Starting at the age of 11, I have attempted suicide 443 times (sometimes barely surviving, twice dying, only to be revived) and for fifteen years I was a person who self-harmed – cutting and bloodletting, sometimes as self-harm, sometimes as a suicide attempt. The two are definitely linked but not all self-harm is suicidal, not all suicide attempts are meant to kill, and sadly about one million people kill themselves every year, not all of them meaning to. As I have also been the victim left behind when someone I loved took their own life, I really can see the issue from all perspectives. Allow me to fill you in on my personal experience first of all, so you know you are ‘talking’ to someone who really has been there before herself. Pull up a chair, or sit back in bed, and we will talk.

    This review is from: Screaming in Silence: Suicide, Attempted Suicide and Self-Harm Recovery (Paperback)

    Highly recommend this book. Written from someone who attempted suicide many times and her insights, feelings and coping. Gave me a lot of insight into how to deal with my personal feelings for my loved one who attempted suicide.

    Katy Sarah Culling provides a very vivid and deep experiences about self harm suicide as well as being a survivor of others who have committed suicide. I could readily identify with her and learned some things about myself while reading this book. I tried to commit suicide in my past. She also helped me identify what I must have put my family through with my attempt. She also made me aware that I self harmed as well just in a different way than her. I had eating problems similar to her. I have been in her shoes and can say she is definetly the real deal. For anyone who wishes to learn more about this subject I would say get this book.
