Description

Story of The Book

Hi! I’m Crystal Webster and I’m the author of Confessions of a Griever: Turning a Hot Mess into a Haute Message (Laughable Lessons for When Life Just Sucks). I wrote this book because after my daughter died in my arms in 2010, I was lost and lonely. I was drowning in self-pity, grief, guilt, and anger.

There wasn’t a good book that I found (and let me tell you, I loooooooooked!) that really spoke to the way I was feeling. They were either too clinical, scientific and stuffy – or too “churchy” and “everything happens for a reason-y.” Neither style felt right to my soul. This book is an honest (and irreverent) guidebook to navigate towards your new normal.

My hope is that, in reading this book, you will discover that your grief is uniquely yours. You don’t have to fit into the “bucket” of one extreme or the other. Grief is a spectrum and you move along that curve on a day-by-day (and sometimes minute-by-minute) basis. In this book, I hope to instill the same sort of understanding and acceptance that I have come to recognize in grief. And then, ultimately, I want you to see this book as a resource to help you traverse your own grief path.

In this book, you’ll learn about grief, loss, and mourning:

  • Grief and Mourning are not the same.
  • “Don’t You Call My husband an @$$hole” – and other things I get to say and you don’t.
  • Why “Ducking Yourself” is maybe the best thing you can do for your grief.

You will find solace in this book if you have ever experienced a loss of something you can not get back.

Confessions of a Griever: Turning a Hot Mess into a Haute Message (Laughable Lessons for When Life Just Sucks) is a non-fiction book that speaks to grievers and non-grievers alike who want to understand their grief a little better and who want to better support those around them who are grieving.

Part 1 contains my personal experience with shock along with stories, anecdotes, tactics and tricks to help you navigate this period in your journey – notice I didn’t use the word “stage” – including what types of loss are “grievable” and why you shouldn’t believe yourself.

Part 2 contains my personal experience with denial along with stories, anecdotes, tactics and tricks to help you navigate this period in your journey – including why you should consider me your “grief guru’‘ and why you just need to ”f’ing breathe“.

Part 3 contains my personal experience with anger along with stories, anecdotes, tactics and tricks to help you navigate this period in your journey – including the correlation between grief blaming and victim shaming.

About the Author

Crystal Webster is founder and Chief Solace Officer of Sharing Solace. Founded from the love and loss of her daughter, Madelyn Elizabeth, she wants no one to feel alone on their path to their new normal.

She wrote Confessions of a Griever: Turning a Hot Mess into a Haute Message (Laughable Lessons for When Life Just Sucks) because she felt there was another “angle” to grief and mourning – a “middle of the road” approach that married humor, sorrow, and hope that only a ‘loss mama’ could articulate.

When not eating, drinking, breathing, and sleeping grief support she likes to spend time playing board games with her husband, binge (re)watching Friends, watching her nephews grow, and traveling (to Vegas specifically).
