After three decades living with depression I took my own life in December 2014. That worked. At least for five minutes until I was resuscitated. Two years later my life partner committed suicide. He suffered a life time, 49 years, from depressions and suicidal thoughts. He was not brought back to life.
In the same year I founded the project TREES of MEMORY. Since March 2018, I have been hiking around the world and planting trees in memory of suicide victims. I inform people about the possibilities of escaping depression and I fight against the stigma of suicide and for an open approach in society to this illness.
In a mixture of biographical episodes and my personal life perspectives, I depict the journey into the mental underworld and back into the light. Sometimes I describe my emotions in a richly illustrated way, sometimes I am direct, unembellished and tough, in order to take the reader on a journey back into life and into a future. I add some helpful philosophical aspects too.
He impressively describes how he counters and eliminates his depressions and suicidal tendencies.
