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 much...you 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.
