About Sylvia Berger

I am 50 years young and live in a beautiful part of Tasmania (Australia's pristine island state). I have loved writing since an early age and have had one children's picture book published - "I've Been to Africa" (under my then married name Sylvia Lebkowski) and numerous magazine articles. "Don't Tell Me To Get Over It" is my first e-book.

Review by: James Jackson on Jan. 01, 2012 : star star star star
The author lost her 17 year old son to sudden, unexpected suicide. This is a mother's personal story how she experiences her grief.

Chapter 3 discusses some ways that helped her deal with grief: thinking that he is in the next room and talking to him; keeping around clothing that smelled like him; meditation, physical activities, fundraising "for the children", quiet time, and the support of friends.

Tags help readers know what's inside the book. The book could use more "tags" in addition to the one tag given: "grief".

Other appropriate tags for Don't Tell Me to Get Over It include: suicide, teenage, death, son, mother, love never dies, memories, time, spirituality, ways to cope, John Denver, Sunchine song, Stand by Me song, away on holiday and friends.

Organizations that help prevent teen suicide would be a useful resource to include at end.

The author says that she now lives for her two remaining sons. That's quite a weight for them to bear. I agree with the author that some things one never gets over. Over much time, pain can lessen.
