Here is where I freed Brett’s ashes 2 years ago. Today I came to Chicago to visit my late husband and tomorrow I’ll be in Milwaukee to attend a suicide support group training course. They say to plan ahead on special days we would have shared together. What would have been our 9 year anniversary on the 25th..I will be in training to help facilitate future support group meetings or help fill in wherever I’m needed. I rather have a limb sawed off then feel what I’m feeling inside, but it doesn’t really matter because it already feels as if half of me is gone anyways. Sometimes it’s so hard 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
