Dodging Suicide - A Lifetime's Preoccupation
by Kit Johnson
Kit Johnson suffers from a form of Bipolar and Hyperthymesia, and has endured a life where suicidal thoughts, and attempts, have punctuated much of his existence. He has been diagnosed incorrectly at least 10 times by so called experts, many of whom seemed to have less insight than he did.
In this alternative 'self help' story, he takes a semi autobiographical and affectionate look at his condition, which is leavened with much humour. Commendably short in length, reflecting the short attention span that characterises the condition, it is raw at times, excoriating in its honesty, and takes the reader on a journey of pain, joy and possible redemption
Kit Johnson spent much of his life in Human Resources Management where he enjoyed a reputation for exceptional insight into careers and the art of managing people. He spent several years working overseas, and has counselled many senior executives on maximising their potential, and equipping them with the skills to survive in business politics.
He has one daughter and currently lives in London
