"Wake Me from the Nightmare:
Hope, Healing, and Empowerment after Suicide Loss"
YOU CAN AWAKEN FROM THE NIGHTMARE OF SUICIDE LOSS ...
After suicide loss, survivors are left to live in a chronic state of shock, horror, and devastation. Broken and raw, they forge on, while plagued with pain, disruptive thoughts, and unanswered questions. Too often, they suffer in silence or isolation. Dread enters with the light of dawn and the nightmare continues, leaving survivors praying just to feel “normal” again.
The terrain of traumatic grief is complicated at best and precarious at worst. Jade McAuliffe understands this balance. She’s been there. After losing her sister in 2015, what kept her alive was her refusal to stay quiet and her willingness to stay connected. What she found waiting on the other side of her personal wreckage was a brand-new life.
Now, in Wake Me from the Nightmare, she shares her discoveries, including:
- How acknowledging your pain will help you to heal it
- How regular self-care can calm your anxiety
- Why protecting your energy is vital for maintaining your health and sanity
- Why you don’t have to “get over” your loss in order to heal it
- How speaking your truth can save your life
- How trusting yourself will help you trust the world again
It’s Jade’s belief that no one should have to grieve alone. If you’re suffering silently or just need support from someone who understands complicated loss, Wake Me from the Nightmare could mean the difference between life and death.

What readers are saying about Wake Me From the Nightmare...
“Want to help someone coping with grief following suicide (or any sudden, unexpected death)? Drop off a copy of this little book with a note saying, “Thinking of you with love”. Get a copy for yourself too. This is a straightforward, simple guide to better understanding.”

“If you’re struggling with grief from suicide or any other life changing loss, you will find strength and courage in the pages of this book. It’s a heartfelt work from the heart of someone who has been there and a wonderful guide to understanding grief.”
Kay Melson, Genoa City, WI
“I wish I’d had R. Jade McAuliffe’s book about 20 years ago, when my sister took her own life. I was so busy ‘being there’ for my mother, I forgot how important it was to be there for myself.
From the very beginning, and throughout this book, I found many great quotes including this one: ‘Partake in bodacious self-care practices.’ But perhaps the most profound statement was found in her Conclusion: ‘Death doesn’t kill a relationship, it only alters it.’ This is the best take-away statement I have ever read!”

“While Wake Me from the Nightmare was written for those impacted by suicide loss, I think it should be required reading for everyone recovering from loss or trauma of any kind. Filled with stories from Jade McAuliffe’s personal experiences and those of her clients, this book helps readers understand they are not alone, even the most ‘out there’ feelings and thoughts are normal, and real-world and ‘out of this world’ support is always available for the taking.”

“The loss of a loved one is a painful experience. Enduring the added trauma of loss to suicide makes this situation even more devastating. In this heartfelt and comforting book, Jade reminds you that you’re not alone. She shares her own story, struggles, and realizations with honesty and compassion. The tools she offers are simple and essential in gently guiding the heartbroken through the journey of grief and mourning. Most importantly, Jade reminds us all that, ultimately, we’re here to celebrate our loved ones (and ourselves) through a life well lived. This book is a must-have for anyone dealing with traumatic loss.”

“This book offers a loving and personal account of what it’s like to be a survivor of suicide loss. More importantly, it shares hope and help for others going through this nightmare. Read it and share it.”
Maryann Udel, Los Angeles, CA, Founder of Sheltering Tree
“I became a survivor of suicide in 2005 and I wish this book would have been available to me then. I read every book Amazon had at the time. Most were comforting to know I was not alone, but they did not address the steps and exercises to go through the grieving process. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is clawing their way back to their new normal. The book will help you realize that it is okay to feel the way you do, exercises to deal with the guilt, the anger, the endless questions of why. I believe every survivor will benefit from reading this book and applying the step by step process to ensure that you not only will survive this tremendous loss, but you will be a stronger, healthier person when the sky begins to turn blue again.”
Renay Elmore, Hattiesburg, MS
"This is a wonderful book! An easy read and hard to put down once you begin reading it! I believe it can be helpful for anyone experiencing the loss of a loved one, and not just a suicide loss. Jade's words are comforting. Her steps to recovery are easy to follow and practical! The best part about this book is knowing that Jade has personally experienced loss and grief, and she made it through stronger and happier than ever. Her experience adds empathy to the book. I highly recommend this book to anyone experiencing loss and grief."
Cathy Carroll, Northlake, IL
“I lost a loved one to suicide but not in the conventional sense. She drank herself to her death. I felt all the same feelings of despair and hopelessness R. Jade discusses in her book. I struggled with guilt, with shame, with loss. Reading this book opened my eyes to things I had been feeling but couldn't express or even admit to. Thank you, R. Jade for writing this and putting it out there for people to read, to open eyes to healing and feeling again. It's a process and it's not easy but it's so worth it in the end. To be able to breathe again, to laugh again, to live.” Elizabeth Harris, Racine, WI
“Author R. Jade McAuliffe walks alongside the reader by guiding them through suicide grief and sharing her personal experience. I know this book can help those who suffer due to complicated loss. I can confidently say this because it has already helped me. I used some of the suggested exercises to assist me with my own post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and I found it effective and refreshing. I hope I never again have to see another suffer in pain due to suicide loss but, if I do, this book has provided more insight on how I might better address such a condolence. I pray this book will inspire others to find courage to live their best life, as it did me.”
Shelley Salazar, Hoffman Estates, IL
“Astounding and powerful! R Jade McAuliffe bravely shares her story of surviving suicide loss. She gracefully offers the method that she used to regain control of her life! This book is a warm hug and a guide for people who feel like their life has collapsed from experiencing loss through the traumatic happenings of a suicide. In her book, Jade truly showcases as a heart of gold and a pillar of strength to lean on. I highly recommend!”

The author gave the reader exercises, personal examples, and insight on how to deal with emotions, reactions from others, and how to get additional support.

“A must have self-help book for grief, suicide loss and beyond!
This is an invaluable tool for anyone grieving a suicide loss in their life. The author has blended a brilliant combination of helpful advice, from sharing her own personal story in a warm, reassuring and relatable way, to providing simple yet powerful self-healing exercises.
In my opinion this book isn't just for suicide loss survivors. I also find it to be a great resource for anyone grieving a traumatic loss or learning to heal from PTSD and related conditions.
Reading "Wake Me from the Nightmare" is like having your own personal cheerleader on your road to recovery. I found this book to be encouraging, comforting, and filled with hope for navigating such difficult circumstances in our lives.”
