About

Like many people who find themselves surfing the waves of grief, I am a normal everyday person who had the unthinkable happen. My husband passed away unexpectedly to an unknown depression. He completed suicide in October of 2016. I am writing this blog to help myself, to hopefully touch someone else who is surfing the waves, and to try to create a safe place for feelings in regards to loss, grief, suicide, therapy, grace, resilience, and acceptance.

This blog is a part of my therapy, a way to remember him positively but also a way to give me a creative outlet and a means to focus. I hope that you enjoy reading. To all the hero and heroine’s of resilience keep on keeping on. To all the supporters of the grieving who understand us, thank you.

I also hope that this page will help to eliminate some of the stigma around depression and loss of a loved one to suicide. Stigma and shame is what keeps so many of us in the dark. Please if you feel lost, alone, confused, dark, or suicidal get support and help from someone you trust, a therapist, a doctor, a loved one, or a suicide hotline. You are loved, you are important, you are needed.
