Tonight I’m donating my copy of Craig Miller‘s book, “This is How it Feels: Attempting Suicide and Finding Life,” to Tom Phillips‘s suicide loss support group, Through This Together. I was very moved when I heard the author speak in Lisa Klein‘s documentary The S Word. Like my late husband, Craig was molested at a young age. And unlike my late husband, Craig did not succeed at his attempt. His book is one of transparency and resilience. If you get to check out his book you have to at least turn to page 281. What beautiful and insightful words for anyone to read who is going through torrential times. I wish my late husband could have read your book..

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
