Depression is a term people use when things are not going their way and they are sad. Clinical Depression is when things are going your way, but you still feel sad or you are persistently sad for long periods of time. Manic Depression is when you can look happy, but you’re still deeply sad inside. Situational Depression is struggling to manage a stressful event in your life that has happened…like existing without your loved one after a death. I really hate knowing that the holidays are approaching once again without you Brett.

After my husband ended his life I was completely devastated and felt as if I was torn into pieces that could never be put back together. How could life go on? The emotional pain he ended was unknowingly passed onto me. I knew I needed help quickly. I joined a support group called SASS (Suicide Awareness Survivor Support) who supports the ones left behind after a loved one's suicide and also helps raise mental health awareness. I will never get over my husband's death, but I now know that I can get through it, thanks to SASS. I sweep nothing under the rug. By starting an open and honest conversation I hope to help break down the stigmas and start raising mental health awareness. Together we can stay above the rug! View all posts by abovetherug
