Life still sucks...but it does get better!

Entry #12

I've decided to start a support group to help other suicide loss survivors.  I have to do something with the pain I feel.  Since the day Ken took his life I've said that good has to come from this tragedy.  So in addition to advocating and educating, I want to offer support for others who are walking this same terrible path.  So we'll meet here in Colfax twice a month and see how it goes.  Our first meeting is Thursday and I'm really looking forward to it! 


There is much strength to be gained in sharing the struggles that suicide creates and Lord knows we can all use some.  I've always been a strong person, took pride in that in fact, and I need to find that woman again. I guess that's part of loving someone so feel weak from losing him.  Witnessing Ken's death will be something I have to deal with for the rest of my life, but I have to gain strength from it not weakness.

It will be 13 years ago on 10/4 when my boyfriend chose suicide as a way out too. Thank you for sharing! ~ peace, love & light.

My thoughts are with you. I had two nephews commit suicide. Bryant was 32 and Keith was 30. Why why why!!???

Ken's choice was not in anyway your fault. My step father of 33 years decided to hang himself at the age of 91. Heartbreaking, the grief is different- as stated
