Suicide has become an epidemic that is growing at an alarming rate .
Please - if you have thought of suicide, or have attempted suicide, or have lost a loved one to suicide, know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
There is always help, always hope and there are people who care about you! Their world will never be the same if you take your life. Please reach out and call someone who can help you.
If you have lost a loved one to suicide know that there was nothing you could of or should of done! The guilt that we feel when a loved one has chosen to end their own life in my own personal as well as professional experience is a type of grief that goes beyond the core of our own being. We feel and believe that we are to blame and hold our self's accountable for the choice and actions that our loved one chose.
RADIO SHOW SUICIDE SERIES
" I finally felt strong enough to share my personal struggles and stories about how suicide I thought was the only answer to end my emotional pain , how it had taken the lives of 4 people in my life that shook me to the core of my being". I decided to share my personal journey being a survivor , and being left behind after my loved ones chose to take their own life:! If I could somehow bring comfort to others who felt alone, embarrassed ashamed and continue to blame themselves including the overwhelming guilt that I carried of " I should of KNOWN"! I should done this or that"! If sharing my story could help just one person feel that they are not to blame, not alone and there is always hope then I was going to do it! . The show was to meant be a one time segment. What took place during and after the first segment was in its self an amazing healing process not just for me, but for the many people whose lives were touched. Please if you are struggling with thoughts of suicide or you also have experienced the passing of a loved one
