Guest - ROBERT IMBEAULT
Before I Leave You
A Memoir on Suicide, Addiction and Healing
Every forty seconds around the globe a person commits suicide.
Robert Imbeault’s Before I Leave You: A Memoir on Suicide, Addiction and Healing is a book for our time. If you have a problem with addiction, whether it's origins derive from work, sex, alcohol, or are drug-related, if you are feeling suicidal, if you have been sexually abused and are struggling or if you have lost a loved one to suicide, this book is a must-read.
Robert Imbeault is a successful entrepreneur and childhood sexual abuse survivor. At the height of his phenomenal career, repressed memories of a sexual assault trigger a five-year suicidal drug and alcohol binge. Robert was on a mission to end his pain and his life. Luckily for us, Robert finds sobriety on a road less traveled and he rewrites the ending of his life story. Robert Imbeault’s memoir is POWERFUL because he doesn't skip over the ugly truths to arrive at his happy ending. His authentic voice is a beacon of light for anyone struggling and especially if you are contemplating suicide.
One in five women and one in thirteen men report being sexual abused as a child.
Naomi Judd R.I.P and to all who have lost a loved one to suicide my heart will always be with you.
This show is dedicated to the memory of my brother, John Harold McGinley Jr.
