Is Heaven a Snoozer or a Trip?

Is Heaven a Snoozer or a Trip?

When Erik describes Heaven, I react differently depending on the state of affairs in my life. If the shit’s hitting the fan, I’m like, “Sign me up. Let’s get a first class ticket for Mama E!” But when I’m loving life as I have recently, I’m more hesitant. The thought of having no contrast sounds, well,…

Erik on Grieving, Part Two

Wow, I sure did get a lot of positive feedback about the Chaga mushroom tea. A lot of you want to know the products I bought. Here they are:  Salem Botanical Chaga Tea (cup a day) Mushroom Science Chaga capsules (two a day) Maine Chaga Face and Body Cream by My Berry Organics (morning and night)…

Suicide and Loss, Part Two

Suicide and Loss, Part Two

I have a question for you guys. What kind of reality TV show would you watch with Jamie, Erik and I in it? There are so many possibilities, so I want your input! Ponder that after you read Part Two of Three of the Suicide and Loss series.  Me: All right. How do you know if it…

Suicide and Loss, Part One

Suicide and Loss, Part One

I heard the webinar class with Jamie had a big turnout and was great. I’m glad you guys enjoyed it. It’s amazing how some of the things she teaches can have such a powerful effect on our lives. Today, I’m busy as cr*#. I’m being interviewed on a radio show today at 5:00 PM and I…

Why People Take Their Lives

Why People Take Their Lives

Here I am way up above the tree line in Norway where Internet access is spotty and very expensive. For that reason (plus the fact that I’m on vacation) I’m only going to post three days a week. Got to tend to the moose and trolls, after all. It’s so peaceful and pristine here. So…

Call for Aborted Suicide Attempts

Call for Aborted Suicide Attempts

Hey all, I was contacted by a producer of a reality show who is considering using an “Erik story” for an episode. Of course this is a long shot, but I would love it if you can share a time when Erik may have literally prevented you from committing suicide and whether you’d be willing…

Best of Erik: To Be or Not to Be

Best of Erik: To Be or Not to Be

Since Robin William’s death, a lot of people have been wondering about why he made the decision he did. Personally, I think a lot of comedians, including Robin, Richard Jeni and others, have their dark side, and feeling lost and sad compels them to balance their lives with humor. Let’s revisit the suicide issue again….

Being a Caregiver

Being a Caregiver

I had such a wonderful time with the family in Destin, Florida this week. The weather cooperated only one day, but that day made up for everything. Navarre Beach was delightful: powdered sugar sand, crystal clear water and not more than 6 people stretched out in the sun there. We also went to the quaint…

Are You a Bush or a Tree?

Are You a Bush or a Tree?

Hey Erik.  Erik refers me to the blog to catch up on the past few entries.  This morning, and over the past few weeks I’ve been having “background” conversations with Erik about suicide, and I was really on the fence with writing about it publically.  Erik points at the blog and is like, “Look, it’s…

Suicide and Judgment

Suicide and Judgment

Since the first post is so short and the second one seems to be a good segue, I’m giving you another two-fer. Me: How do know that you’re one of the rare people whose suicide is their predetermined exit point or one of those who are not? Erik: There are a lot of people on…

Suicides in the Afterlife

Suicides in the Afterlife

I’m sitting here typing on my Mac here in a Best Western Hotel in the piss ant town of Cresson, TX. Pretty much an intersection, a gas station, and a liquor store (Thank God. I need my Cabernet!) Why, you ask? I’ve asked that same question for the past couple of days.But I have to…

Why Stay?

Why Stay?

Thank you all for your prayers. We surely needed them and still do. I’m so sorry I haven’t responded to comments to the posts, emails and Facebook messages. I still have a hard time seeing and there’s not much signal in the ICU.  In this post, Erik gives his case against suicide. Hope you enjoy!…

Best of Erik: Suicide

Best of Erik: Suicide

Me: Okay, now what do I tell people when you’ve spent a lot of time here talking about how easy death usually is and how wonderful the afterlife can be? What’s to stop them from wanting to go there before it’s their time? I mean, you make a great case for dying. What can I…

More on My Nomination!

More on My Nomination!

There are no words to express my surprise (shock and awe was my first choice but that seemed a little too military for my taste) to find out about the Yahoo nomination for “Women Who Shine.” I’m sure there are thousands of women who are just as deserving out there, some of whom are reading…
