Nov 222018
 

Another quiet Thanksgiving for us. There will definitely be turkey, sides, and pumpkin pie. Daughter #1 will be working and then she and her family will be with the other set of grandparents. Daughter #2 is working for part of the day. She and Son #2 will be here for dinner. The major thing is that I am spending today totally away from the computer. Reading, relaxing and a little parade watching may be all I do today and that is just fine with me.

I hope you are having a relaxing day too whether spending it with friends and family or just having a quiet day like me. Just be sure to leave room for pie, lots and lots of pie! 

Happy Thanksgiving
From The Caswell’s

Gratitude Giveaway Hop

Another year almost over. I love this giveaway because it gives me a chance to say THANK YOU and show my Gratitude in a small way! 

The year was full of great reads and fun times. I also had a pretty good bout of the flu and you were all so supportive. Thank you for following my blog, reading my reviews, entering the giveaways and generally supporting me in this internet world. I still haven’t won the lottery so unfortunately, I can’t give all you a prize, but please know it is because of you I get up each day and get on this computer to share my thoughts, mostly about books, with you. You are the reason I stay up late, sometimes into the early morning hours reading so I can tell you about so many good books, it will be well over 200 books this year. Last year my quest was to find something to make me smile each day. This year I realized I have to look no farther than this blog. Your comments, your prayers, your support, makes me smile each and every day, sometimes all day long. 

Thank you so much!!

The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an
informal week in review gathering place for bloggers.

It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!

My week started out great when the Milwaukee Brewers clinched the National League Central Division and are in the playoffs! Mr. Dollycas was so happy.

Then that evening we celebrated my BFF’S birthday with a surprise party here in Wisconsin. We had so much fun but the evening passed too quickly and they headed back to Kentucky early the next morning. I hope they can break away and head our way again soon. 

The week then kind of went downhill as I was caught up in all the political debauchery. I was ready to move on when Kaden arrived Friday evening so we could take him to his game yesterday. The rain passed over and the game was played but the field they played on was unreachable for me and my wheelchair. The ground was too wet and the gravel/dirt road was filled with huge puddles. Mr. Dollycas and Daughter #2 made the trek and witnessed Kaden have a great game, 3 Sacks! The game ended tied 13 – 13. While disappointed at missing the game, I did have my Kindle with me and finished one book and started another 🙂 Next week is the last game for the year and I know I can get to that field. I can hardly wait!

A Very Merry Murder (A Professor Prather Mystery)
by Mary Angela

My Reading Schedule was full when this tour came in
but I will be reading and reviewing in the future. 

About the Book


A Very Merry Murder (A Professor Prather Mystery)
Cozy Mystery
3rd in Series
Camel Press (October 1, 2018)
Paperback: 258 pages
ISBN-10: 1603816550
ISBN-13: 978-1603816557
Digital ASIN: B07G2VLLCV

It’s December in Copper Bluff, and from hillside to hallowed hall, everyone is merry—or will be as soon as semester break arrives. Students are studying, professors are grading, and Emmeline Prather is anticipating the university-sponsored holiday concert. Friend and colleague Lenny Jenkins will be accompanying the visiting quartet, Jazz Underground, and Em can’t think of a better way to kick-start the holiday season.

But before she can say “Jingle Bell Rock,” trouble arrives at Candlelight Inn, the bed and breakfast where the quartet is staying. One of the band members dies unexpectedly, and suspicion falls on Em, whose altercation with the man ends with him on the floor. He never recovers, and now she’s worried her reputation might not either. When Emmeline starts to see parallels between an Agatha Christie novel she’s teaching and the victim, Lenny claims she’s read one too many mysteries.

As the clues unravel, so does the murderer’s patience. Em is close to finding the truth, but will the truth—or the murderer—push her over the edge? It will take a Christmas miracle to solve this case, but if there’s one thing in surplus this time of year, it’s faith.

Praise for A Very Merry Murder (A Professor Prather Mystery)
by Mary Angela

This book overflows with the sounds and smells and music of the winter holiday season.
I was carried away to Copper Bluff, South Dakota.
~Laura’s Interests

A VERY MERRY MURDER is a warm and endearing cozy mystery into which the reader slips, similar to slipping under a warm afghan near a glowing fire on a cold winter’s night, ready to wrap oneself in the story,
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies

Lots of twists, turns, and surprises that you won’t see coming all leading to a great reveal scene that made me think of Sherlock as Em laid it all out for them.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews

This book was definitely cute with the descriptions of Christmas and how the people celebrate the holidays. Along with solving a mystery and add an Agatha Christie novel to the mix and it’s bound to be a great adventure!

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!

Summer tv is over and I was thrilled that Kaycee won Big Brother. Now the new television season has begun. I love the new Chicago Wednesdays with Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD, all on one night. I am excited about The Good Doctor, The Voice, Law & Order SVU, Grey’s Anatomy, This Is Us, and Blue Bloods too. I did DVR two new shows as well, New Amsterdam and Manifest. I also DVR How to Get Away With Murder but save those for binge watching. Good thing I can read and watch television or at least read during the commercials.

Miss Natalie arrived Friday evening and she traveled with us to Kaden’s away game on Saturday. It was a chilly day, about 48 degrees. I am just not ready for those temps. A t-shirt, sweater, and hoodie kept the top half of me warm, I am going to have a blanket if the weather sticks around for the last two weeks of games. Our team won again 20 – 6. Today, I hope to stay indoors with a good book as soon as I get my computer work done, maybe watch the Packer game too.

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!

Every day is a hard day without my son Kristopher, but March, December, and September are the hardest months. March because he was born and died in March. December because of the holidays and all that goes with them. September because it is Suicide Prevention Month. This past week was Suicide Prevention Week. I only posted about it here on my blog one time this year, until today. This past week I shared information on Facebook, Twitter, and Google + each day. I wrote a little post for our church bulletin, and I cried a lot.

Yesterday marked 42 months since Kris’ death, but I swear the grief can come up and smack you in the face at any time. It always feels like he was here just yesterday or last week. Then I look at his daughter, now 6, and all the days without him came rushing back. What also comes rushing back is how important Suicide Prevention and Awareness is.

Suicide is a permanent solution for a temporary problem.

Suicide prevention starts with everyday heroes like you. There are many ways to help.

Awareness needs to be raised about the help available. The stigma about suicide and thoughts of suicide needs to be removed. Use your voice and social media to speak out and raise awareness.

You can volunteer at local chapters and contact your political representatives and lobby for a more open conversation about Mental Health. Mental Health needs to be treated by insurance carriers like any other illness.

September is designated as Suicide Prevention Month but it needs to be in the conversation 365 days a year because suicide doesn’t take a day off. On average there are 123 suicides every day in the U.S. almost 45,000 a year. 

Okay, I am getting off my soapbox. You can see this cause is very important to me. If your lives have been touched by suicide you know the pain. The pain that has left our loved one and transferred to us. Reach Out – Listen Closely – Let Them Know You Care. Don’t be afraid to ask them if they are thinking about suicide. Don’t leave them alone. Encourage them to seek help. 

If you are in crisis, or with someone in a crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741741.

See my post here for more information and information on how to donate to the Walk for Hope on September 22.

Thank you!

September is Suicide Prevention Month – Walk for Hope – September 22, 2018

If you have followed my blog you know that my oldest son took his life on March 15, 2015, 41 1/2 months ago, but I need to share his story again.

Kristopher Scot Caswell, 29, was one of my greatest joys. I was so proud of him. He had to grow up fast after my accident in 2001. All our lives drastically changed but Kris seemed to really excel. It was an important year, he got a job and his driver’s license. I never imagined that his life ending the way it did.

We knew he was struggling and thought we were doing everything right. He was seeing a therapist, he was on medication, he and his ex-wife were getting past all the hurdles and learning to co-parent their almost 3-year-old daughter. I talked to him on the phone every day. Living 50 miles from each other and me not able to drive it wasn’t possible to see him every day. He texted with his sister the day he died, he worked that day, he set up a playdate for his daughter for the following week. Something happened between Kris and his girlfriend that night. I knew part of it at the time, but months later when the police gave us his cell phone we saw what could have been the thing that pushed him over the edge. The police even said they wished they could charge her with something, but the laws hadn’t caught up with all this technology. When the local police came to our door at about 3:30 a.m. I knew as soon as I heard the knock that he was gone. I was awake and had been hours. He died 14 years after my accident on the exact same date. I will never know if that was intentional or just a fluke, but it haunts me. 

The sad thing is we are not alone.

  • Suicide is the leading cause of death in the U.S.
  • 44965 Americans die each year by suicide.
  • For every suicide 25 attempt.
  • Men die by suicide 3.53 times more often than women.
  • On average, there are 123 suicides per day.
  • White males accounted for 7 of 10 suicides in 2016.
  • Firearms account for 51% of all suicides in 2016.
  • The rate of suicide is highest in middle age — white men in particular.
  • The annual age-adjusted suicide rate is 13.42 per 100,000 individuals.

Suicide Rates by Age

In 2016, the highest suicide rate (19.72) was among adults between 45 and 54 years of age. The second highest rate (18.98) occurred in those 85 years or older. Younger groups have had consistently lower suicide rates than middle-aged and older adults. In 2016, adolescents and young adults aged 15 to 24 had a suicide rate of 13.15.

I saw an article last week about a 9-year-old boy that was bullied at school and he took his life. I know of a 10-year-old boy that took his life that same day as my son. To be in so much pain at such a young age is heartbreaking. Suicide strikes at all ages. Kris was 14 days away from his 30th Birthday. 

Risk Factors and Warning Signs

What leads to suicide?

There’s no single cause for suicide. Suicide most often occurs when stressors and health issues converge to create an experience of hopelessness and despair. Depression is the most common condition associated with suicide, and it is often undiagnosed or untreated. Conditions like depression, anxiety and substance problems, especially when unaddressed, increase risk for suicide. Yet it’s important to note that most people who actively manage their mental health conditions go on to engage in life.

Suicide Warning Signs

Something to look out for when concerned that a person may be suicidal is a change in behavior or the presence of entirely new behaviors. This is of sharpest concern if the new or changed behavior is related to a painful event, loss, or change. Most people who take their lives exhibit one or more warning signs, either through what they say or what they do.

Talk

If a person talks about:

  • Killing themselves
  • Feeling hopeless
  • Having no reason to live
  • Being a burden to others
  • Feeling trapped
  • Unbearable pain

Behavior

Behaviors that may signal risk, especially if related to a painful event, loss or change:

  • Increased use of alcohol or drugs
  • Looking for a way to end their lives, such as searching online for methods
  • Withdrawing from activities
  • Isolating from family and friends
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Visiting or calling people to say goodbye
  • Giving away prized possessions
  • Aggression
  • Fatigue

Mood

People who are considering suicide often display one or more of the following moods:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Loss of interest
  • Irritability
  • Humiliation/Shame
  • Agitation/Anger
  • Relief/Sudden Improvement

Suicide Risk Factors

Risk factors are characteristics or conditions that increase the chance that a person may try to take their life.

Health Factors

  • Mental health conditions
    • Depression
    • Substance use problems
    • Bipolar disorder
    • Schizophrenia
    • Personality traits of aggression, mood changes, and poor relationships
    • Conduct disorder
    • Anxiety disorders
  • Serious physical health conditions including pain
  • Traumatic brain injury

Environmental Factors

  • Access to lethal means including firearms and drugs
  • Prolonged stress, such as harassment, bullying, relationship problems or unemployment
  • Stressful life events, like rejection, divorce, financial crisis, other life transitions or loss
  • Exposure to another person’s suicide, or to graphic or sensationalized accounts of suicide

Historical Factors

  • Previous suicide attempts
  • Family history of suicide
  • Childhood abuse, neglect or trauma

What can you do to help STOP SUICIDE?

First, watch your family and friends, for the warning signs listed above. If you notice anything, don’t be afraid to talk to them about it. I made the mistake of treading lightly around Kris, just trying to show him I loved and supported him, but what I should have been doing was get in his face, make him hear me and start a continuing conversation. At the time I didn’t want to pressure him and we saw how well that worked. My pastor told a story at Kris’s funeral about what another young man wrote in his suicide note – “The weeds of my mind have grown so long that they entangled my tongue and I am no longer able to speak.” The pastor continued “There is a takeaway from that and I hope all of you take it with you this afternoon. When someone stops communicating with you, you need to know that something is wrong. Do not sweep it under the rug. Sometimes all we can do is let someone pour their heart out to us and sometimes all we can do is listen.”

Second, there are many ways to volunteer. With local programs and events in all 50 states, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s chapters are at the forefront of suicide prevention. Our mission is to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide. AFSP engages with families, mental health professionals, community and local business leaders, school administrators and others interested in preventing suicide. Many counties, cities, colleges, and schools have their own organizations too. Many offer training so you can spread the word of suicide prevention. You can sign up here to become an AFSP advocate.

Third, WALK, there are suicide prevention walks all over the country. Our family with be walking in the Walk for Hope organized by Prevent Suicide of Columbia County here in Wisconsin on September 22. To find a walk near you or to create your own walk, follow this link. Also, watch your local papers or search on the internet for walks near you.

Last, DONATE. There are many ways to donate. You can find ways to donate nationally here. You can donate locally if you have an organization in your area.

Or you can donate for someone who is participating in a walk, like me and my family. This walk is very important to Kris’ daughter who is now 6. She calls it “Daddy’s Walk” because we get together to celebrate and talk about her daddy. She is still too young to understand the true meaning and having that conversation when she gets older is going to be so hard. We call our group Kris’ Krusaders. Kris loved Superman and Batman or any Super Hero for that matter. 

Our local organization does not have a way to take online donations so my daughter, Elizabeth has set up a Go Fund Me page for our family with a goal of $500. I was hoping to say if everyone just gave $1 we would easily reach our goal, but Go Fund Me’s minimum donation is $5. (They also ask for a tip, but you can choose “other” and type in 0.00.) If you would like to donate and feel more comfortable sending a check, just email me at dollycas@hotmail.com or message me on Facebook, and I will send you the address. We welcome all donations, no matter the amount.

About Prevent Suicide Columbia County

The funds raised will benefit Prevent Suicide Columbia County and its local suicide prevention initiatives, including:

 Free QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) suicide prevention training that teaches 3 simple steps anyone can take to save a life from suicide
 Support groups for survivors of suicide loss
 Public information campaigns, including social media and an on-screen video shown at local movie theaters
 Supporting community sectors, like law enforcement and mental and physical health care providers, to implement best practices for preventing suicide
 Increasing access to local mental health care services

Our Vision
A suicide-free community where people will recognize the warning signs,
intervene and help individuals find hope.

Our Mission
To prevent suicide through awareness, education, collaboration, and improved access to mental health care, and to support those who have lost a loved one to suicide.

My personal goal is to have no other family go through the pain that our family continues to endure because of suicide. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. The world will not be better off without you and everyone will miss you if you are gone. 

If you are in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741-741.
