A MOVING PERSONAL REFLECTION OF LOVE, A RELATIONSHIP JOURNEY, THE EXPERIENCE OF PROFOUND LOSS AND ITS EFFECTS
A personal recollection of the joys, love and acceptance between two people that met late in life.
Shortly after they married, Ben became critically ill, from a rare genetic illness, one that none of his Family were aware of, one that he would never recover and would have implications for the rest of his Family.
This book tells of the emotions, feelings and trials that two people struggled with.
The shocking onset of the illness, through to the CCU and later rehabilitation. Exploring the effect that relationships, society and institutions had on their situation and continues after Ben’s death, to Emma’s own personal grieving process.
Forming a real insight into the highs, lows and pain of personal grieving, (an attempted suicide, financial problems and decidedly ill-fated choices made during that time), it delves into areas of death, dying and the grieving process which are often seen as taboo and remain unspoken of.
Whilst it is dark and honest, it speaks of the many magical moments of grieving, with personal understanding and growth, which led to a challenging career move.
