My heart goes out to the families of Kate Spade, Anthony Bourdain and the thousands of others who are not celebrities that died this week. Suicide is unlike any other death..it will transform you. Where mourners usually receive sympathy and compassion, suicide loss survivors will experience judgement, blame, and exclusion…that’s what happened to me and it happens to others too. I hope that their family and friends will surround them and that there are support groups around their area so that they can get help as quickly as possible. Celebrity deaths show you that it does not matter how much wealth or success you can have in your life…suicide does not discriminate. If you are feeling like you want to escape your pain and that others would be better off without you…please seek help or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline ‘1-800-273-TALK (8255)’. I’ve called them before…they can help.
