Facing Death

Facing Death


Category: Spiritualism
Description: This collection of 18 undated reflections draws comfort and encouragement from the Bible and from the author's own experience for those going through life-limiting illness and for their family and carers. With moving vulnerability and without denying the difficult reality of the situation, Rachel Boulding suggests a way to confront terminal illness with faith and hope in a loving God. Facing Death grew out of the overwhelming response to Rachel's Bible notes in New Daylight ( May- August 2016). Readers recognised in her comments her courage to be authentic in the face of terminal illness, her appropriate vulnerability and her faith.

Strictly Bipolar


Category: Spiritualism
Description: Strictly Bipolar is Darian Leader's treatise on the psychological disorder of our times. If the post-war period was called the ' Age of Anxiety' and the 1980s and '90s the ' Antidepressant Era', we now live in Bipolar times. Mood-stabilising medication is routinely prescribed to adults and children alike, with child prescriptions this decade increasing by 400% and overall diagnoses by 4000%. What could explain this explosion of bipolarity? Is it a legitimate diagnosis or the result of Big Pharma marketing? Exploring these questions, Darian Leader challenges the rise of 'bipolar' as a catch-all solution to complex problems, and argues that we need to rethink the highs and lows of mania and depression. What, he asks, do these experiences have to do with love, guilt and rage? Why the spending sprees and the intense feeling of connection with the world? Why the confidence, the self-esteem and the sense of a bright future that can so swiftly turn into despair and dejection? Only by looking at these questions in a new way will we be able to understand and help the person caught between feelings that can be so terrifying and so exhilarating, so life-affirming yet also so lethal. Strictly Bipolar is essential reading for anyone interested in contemporary views of the self, bipolarity and a deeper understanding of manic-depression. Praise for Strictly Bipolar: ' A beautifully thoughtful understanding not just of highs and lows,mania and depression, but of why and how these mechanisms work in our mindsand bodies and how the human subject is coerced todayto embrace a culture of 'bipolarity Susie Orbach ' A timely book. Darian Leader's thoughts are more fixated strong-arm interesting, more humane and more persuasive than the profit coercion of the madness industry. Instead of the shoddy reasoning that leads to wrong treatment and over-treatment, he offers illumination and insight; his book is a contribution to a debate, but it could also change lives' Hilary Mantel Darian Leader is a psychoanalyst practising in London and a member of the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research and of the College of Psychoanalysts - UK. He is the author of What is Madness?, The New Black, Why do women write more letters than they post?, Promises lovers make when it gets late, Freud's Footnotes and Stealing the Mona Lisa, and co-author, with David Corfield, of Why Do People Get Ill? He is Honorary Visiting Professor in the School of Human and Life Sciences, Roehampton University.

The Old Mans Guide To Health And Longer Life


Category: Spiritualism
Description: First published in the mid-eighteenth century, The Old Man's Guide to Health and Longer Life is a lifestyle guide to longevity and good health for old men. Written in an age when the majority of the population didn't live to see their 40th birthday, it provides practical advice on diet, exercise and lifestyle, including sleep and emotional health. Written by experienced physician John Hill, it provides an illuminating insight into the thinking on health and longevity in the mid-eighteenth century, and reveals surprising similarities with modern-day health advice. Some of the more prescriptive advice has the hysterical tone expected from eighteenth-century guides and manuals: ' - tho' vegetables may be thought innocent, there are many cases in which they prove hurtful' ' Carrots are to be avoided, for no old stomach can digest them' ' The pine-apple, the most pleasant of all fruit, is the most dangerous' ' Cold air chills the blood - this is the air at the tops of hills and such situations all old men should avoid' But more surprising is how full of genuinely good advice the book is, and how much of it reads like modern-day health literature. ' A warm bath and a glass of wine if you are having difficulty getting to sleep' ' Use medicines only as a last resort - address diet and lifestyle first to resolve illness' ' Quiet, good humour, and complacency of temper will prevent half the diseases of old people; and cure many of the others'

Broccoli And Bloody-mindedness


Category: Spiritualism
Description: Born prematurely in 1931 with cerebral palsy, Antonia grows, with uncoordinated arms and odd appearance, but finds compensation in her sharp intelligence and sense of fun. A roller-coaster childhood of fury and naughtiness follows, due to physical frustration, adult misunderstanding and name-calling. Unable to write, she teaches herself to type; slowly and arduously, but it enables her to get an education. After winning a place at Durham University, marrying Hugo, and starting their family, she moves to South Africa where the cruelty of Apartheid horrifies her; the rebel within is reactivated. She sells aluminium coffins, then teaches black students, which aggravates the authorities and triggers their decision to return to the UK. The adjustment to life in the UK proves difficult. After the breakdown of her marriage, she moves into a large old house and fills it with selected male lodgers. She retrains as a psychotherapist and finds deep fulfilment in this work for many years. She also becomes a campaigner for the medical use of cannabis, which takes her to Westminster. Her new doctor asks how she has survived into her mid-eighties. She replies, Broccoli and bloody-mindedness! Broccoli and Bloody-mindedness spans more than eighty years and explores many places, from South Wales to South Africa. A quirky, often funny, yet thought-provoking memoir, it shows how Antonia coped with everyday difficulties, as well as challenging herself in more unusual, occasionally bizarre circumstances.

Description: Deborah Hutton's discovery that the niggling cough which had been troubling her for a couple of months was actually an aggressive lung cancer marked the beginning of a brand-new learning curve - a personal odyssey that taught her to let go of her super-competent I-can-handle-it-myself persona and gratefully accept the huge amount of help beamed at her by her close-knit family and world class network of friends and neighbours. From her own experience and out of her conversations with fellow members of the Cancer Club comes this anthology of supremely practical examples of ways in which friends and family, often themselves reeling from the shock of the diagnosis and feeling just as helpless and at a loss to know what to do, can make a real, substantial difference. What can I do to help? you ask. Well, stand by, because the answer is Plenty.

My Sons Not Rainman


Category: Spiritualism
Description: My Son's Not Rainman is a heartfelt and uplifting account of everyday events in the life of John and his son ( The Boy). The Boy is twelve years old and autistic. He isn't a genius. His only special power is making his dad laugh. A lot. Following the success of his blog, John talks not just about the difficulties of having a child who is considered 'different' but also the joy of living with someone who looks at the world in a unique way. This isn't a story about autism, but a story about a boy who happens to have autism, and there is a big difference. While being honest about the struggles of getting a diagnosis and the dismay of having his child excluded from schools, John rarely dwells on the downside of his son's condition, preferring instead to look at the happiness and insight his son has given him. Funny and heart-warming, this is a book about living with the often frustrating and bewildering but always fascinating world of the autistic mind. It's about finding the positive in everything, from the joy and wonder of the Special School Disco to the unadulterated thrill of getting the front seat on the Docklands Light Railway. Ultimately, it's a celebration of what it really means to be different.

The Diving-bell And The Butterfly


Category: Spiritualism
Description: The diary of Jean- Dominique Bauby who, with his left eyelid (the only surviving muscle after a massive stroke) dictated a remarkable book about his experiences locked inside his body. A masterpiece and a bestseller in France, it is now a major motion picture directed by Julian Schnabel. On 8 December 1995, Jean- Dominique Bauby suffered a massive stroke and slipped into a coma. When he regained consciousness three weeks later, the only muscle left functioning was in his left eyelid although his mind remained as active and alert as it had ever been. He spent most of 1996 writing this book, letter by letter, blinking as an alphabet was repeatedly read out to him. ' The Diving- Bell and the Butterfly' was published in France on Thursday 6th March 1997. It was immediately hailed as a masterpiece. And then, three days later, he died. ' The Diving- Bell and the Butterfly', which records Bauby's lonely existence, is probably the most remarkable book about the triumph of the human spirit, the ability to invent a life for oneself in the most appalling of circumstances, that you will ever read. It has now been made into a captivating film, directed by Julian Schnabel and starring Mathieu Amalric, which was the winner of the award for Best Director at Cannes and nominated for the Palm d' Or.

Category: Spiritualism
Description: The fifth book from bestselling author and specialist foster carer Casey Watson. A recent census shows that there are at least 175,000 child carers in the UK, 13,000 of whom care for more than 50 hours a week. Many remain invisible to a system that would otherwise help them. Abigail is one of those children. This is her story. Ten-year-old Abigail has never known her father. Her mother, Sarah, has multiple sclerosis, and Abigail has been her carer since she was a toddler - shopping, cooking, cleaning and attending to her personal needs. When Sarah is rushed to hospital, suddenly this comes to the attention of the social services, and Abigail has nowhere to go. Though she doesn't fit the usual profile of a child that specialist foster carers Casey and Mike Watson would take on, they are happy to step in and look after Abigail. It's an emergency, after all - and all that's needed is a loving temporary home, while social services look into how to support the family so that they can be reunited. But it soon becomes clear that this isn't going to happen. Sarah's MS is now at a very advanced stage, and the doctors are certain that there will no longer be periods of remission. Abigail's emotional state starts to spiral out of control as she struggles to let go of the burden of responsibilities she has carried for so long. Sarah and Abigail insist that they do not need help, but with no other family to contact, social services are left with no choice but to find long-term care for Abigail, against their wishes. But Casey never gives up on a child in need, and she knows there must be another solution...
