PublishAmerica Presents My Suicidal Heart by Howie
Frederick, MD September 29, 2008 --
PublishAmerica is proud to present My Suicidal Heart by Howie.
Suicidal thinking and behavior are prevalent
among all classes of society. Many cultures are
impacted by the tendencies to end one’s life,
despite their spiritual beliefs. The pressures of
growing up are becoming more relevant in our
fragmented lives. Childhood and adulthood are a
war for some, and the toxic bed of pain becomes
too much to handle. They blame themselves when all the burdens settle on them.
We can’t act obliviously to this rising epidemic
of suicide. We need to recognize the warning
signs to save someone who is emotionally stressed
without any hopes of love, happiness, living life
to the fullest and experiencing what God has
given us, before this becomes a vicious circle.
“Writing these poems gave me the inspiration and
insight to enjoy this one life, and to help
others by sharing them, so hopefully you can get
the help you want and need,” Howie said.
Howie was born in Waco, Texas, 1960, in a very
dysfunctional family. He served four years in the USAF.
He’s a survivor of hepatitis C since 1985, HIV
since 1986, a suicide attempt in 2003 and cancer
since 2005. He now lives with his three cats,
Sadie, Buddy, and Alexis in Dallas, Texas.
