Look Inside
Zoom “My Friend, I Care” is a booklet intended for the newly grieving. It addresses the normalcy of grieving and stages of grief while offering suggestions for moving forward into living. The grieving process is as foreign to us as death. The experience is forced upon us by life situations that have been beyond our control. We become angry, depressed, fearful and anxious. We do not know that all these feelings together represent grief; a normal, natural response to the loss of someone or something.

Intended for the newly grieving, My Friend, I Care addresses the normal process of grieving and the stages of grief while offering suggestions for moving forward into living.

The grieving process is as foreign to us as death. The experience is forced upon us by life situations that are beyond our control. We become angry, depressed, fearful and anxious. We do not know that all of these feelings together represent grief; a normal, natural response to the loss of someone or something. No one has taught us what it feels like to grieve. We don’t know how to heal the hurt created by grief or how to live with it. My Friend, I Care offers simple explanations for the thoughts and feelings generated by grief.  

Individuals as well as agencies often use My Friend, I Care as a sympathy card personalizing the booklet with signatures and condolences. It offers an expression of caring while giving support and guidance.

Like all of Barbara's booklets, My Friend, I Care is written in large print and the information is conveyed in a simple, direct yet gentle manner.

This booklet is included in the End of Life Guideline Series.

I simply love all of my books! I recently lost my dear sweet Mama. She was under Hospice Care for just one week, and they gave me the Blue Book, "Gone From My Sight". I did not know these books even existed. I would have loved to have had them all, while I was taking care of her the six months she lived with me before she passed. Thank you so very much for such wonderful helpful books. One day, I will pass these on to love ones who may need them. Barbara, you are so "spot-on" with your writings. Mama and myself experienced many of the same things you talk about in your books. Thanks again so much! God has Blessed you to Bless others. I am one of them.

A good brochure except....

I appreciated this booklet very much with one exception. Twice, at least, grief is described as "selfish." The negative connotations of that word made me feel even worse as I am going through a grief process. Couldn't you use words like, "introspective" "personal" or "private" instead of "selfish" Yes, grief deals with the self, as do all our emotions. Please, don't suggest that people are selfish for feeling grief.

Hi Anna, thank you for the review of the booklet My Friend, I Care. You make a very good point about the use of the word "selfish". I have another printing coming up and will address the wording. Blessings! Barbara

Caregivers

As a caregiver counselor, I find it necessary to give the booklets out to caregivers whose loved ones have reached the end of life. It helps during this transition stage in their lives.

Religion

I would like to share this with my Jewish friends, but I would feel better if religion weren't a part of it, or if it is, say "church/temple" instead of assuming all people get support from a church. I did appreciate the poem, and the advice on "do's and don't's". I will still use this as a tool.

Hi Jennifer, thank you for the review comment on my booklet My Friend, I Care. I so appreciate your pointing out the need to be inclusive of all religions. For the next printing I will change "church" to "place of worship".Blessings! Barbara
