Beyond the Exchange : 13 Days - Not the End
Beyond The Exchange: 13 Days - Not The End is more than a book, journal, or ledger. Beyond The Exchange pulls together a lot of valuable information and thoughts for individuals in a situation that is common to families and individuals, the death of a loved one. The guidance offered benefits the reader with a better picture of this journey before death occurs, during their last days, or even days / months / years afterwards if one is still struggling with reconciling facts or working through personal feelings. The book has been creatively authored to help one handle volumes of information during a stressful time, understand various responsibilities, document valuable information, address your emotions as well as your knowledge base, and provides formatting to enter journal or ledger entries. The challenge in dealing with death whether it occurs suddenly or over a long period of time, is how effectively you work through your responsibilities and emotions. Death is an integral part of life that everyone is affected at varying degrees. Beyond The Exchange: 13 Days - Not The End is a journey that focuses on the challenges of caring for a terminally ill loved one, gaining wisdom through this path, and finding joy again. The length of time is irrelevant as a day may seem like a thousand years. The book provides a valuable structure for end of life decisions that are learned through real life experiences, not taught through academia. Challenges to Your-Frame-of-Reference [YFoR] are provided throughout the book to summarize concepts and encourage self-reflection. Your journey may encounter many inconsistencies and a wide variety of challenges. The lessons you learn while you are giving assistance to a terminally ill patient could provide greater meaning and insight in other areas of your own life even though the experiences may initially seem unrelated. Learning through the meaning of death is unique. Death is an integral part of life. Death ends the tangible, visible, and experiential potential of an individual. Types of death include emotional, spiritual, and physical. Emotional and spiritual death typically occur when one becomes overwhelmed and struggles with replenishing joy and hope. As a care giver, keeping a healthy perspective can be difficult when working with a patient over an extended period of time. You may experience challenges during this time which has the potential to not only challenge one's frame-of-reference, but has the potential to greatly impact your emotional or spiritual well-being. Physical death ends the life, not the relationship. Damage to your emotions or spiritual life can impair relationships with others. The damage could potentially leave one feeling as if they are a shell of a person. At the end of your journey, the goal is to build wisdom and insight. Through your resiliency and expanded knowledge, your love, hope and joy can prevail.
