Tip #1 for Widows/Widowers: When YOU are ready to sell or trade in your late spouse’s car, don’t leave the empty spot empty in your garage. Park your car in the empty spot. Same thing at the dinner table..if you can, try and sit in their empty seat. Or when you are ready to donate or get rid of their clothes, place your clothes in the empty drawers. Those empty spots can leave frequent empty feelings. Try your best to fill them by changing your routine.

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
