Despite the many upsides of age, one of the hardest lessons the years bring is the need to face significant grief and loss. Death affects each and every one of us, but the process of mourning is still deeply misunderstood.
That’s where today’s guest can really help. Debbie Augenthaler is a psychotherapist in private practice in New York City. She also has a story of her own to share. Debbie’s husband, Jim, died suddenly in her arms when she was only 36 years old.
Now Debbie has written the book she wishes she had when she was grieving. It provides the support, guidance, insight, and tools needed to navigate through the difficult process of grief. The book is called You Are Not Alone and Debbie joined me on Feisty Side of Fifty Radio to share all about it.
If you or someone you know is dealing with the illness or death of a loved one, you will want to be sure to hear what Debbie has to say. After listening to her words, then check out Debbie’s blog and her book.
Grief is an all consuming, wrenching process, but knowing you are not alone can provide some much needed relief… even in the depths of suffering.
