Nina Owen/Author of “Throwing It All Away“
Depression and suicide are at record numbers in the country. Throwing It All Away gives an uninhibited look at one family’s journey through depression, drug use, and suicidal ideation. It is written by a mother who lost her 20-year-old son to suicide. The book talks about the son’s struggle to get well, his death, the mother’s indescribable grief and guilt, and the metaphysical spiritual experiences she underwent after his death. Six of the chapters of the book have been taken – verbatim – from the son’s journals, school papers, and other documents. Suicide rips through a family and a community, leaving destruction in its wake. This book shows that suicide is not always planned, it can be impulsive and, with the right help, can be averted.
