One Hundred Goodbyes: On Addiction, Heartache, Grief, and Love (Paperback)
While 5 months pregnant, clinical psychologist Dr. Nicole Anders received a phone call from her father that would shatter her heart and bring her to her knees.
"He's not in pain anymore," her father said, to the sounds of her sobbing in disbelief. Nicole's younger brother Cody had accidentally overdosed, taking his last breath earlier that morning.
In her profession, Dr. Anders specializes in trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), working with combat Veterans and sexual assault survivors. While no stranger to loss, this devastating trauma marked for her a profound first-hand experience with PTSD and heartbreaking grief.
One Hundred Goodbyes is the journey...
Nicole takes you along her journey through the grieving process, touching on all five stages as she wrestles with love and loss; from shock and denial to acceptance.
This timely account of losing a loved one is a testament to the tragedies inflicted by the opiate crisis - eye-opening, heart-wrenching, and powerfully honest.
