Grief, laughter & friendship

Sometimes there really are no right words to say, no explanation good enough, no answers to get. And sometimes all you say feels weird and wrong but you need to say something anyway. Because not talking about it just makes it worse, because suicide is such a sensitive subject surrounded by a lot of stigma.

And the stigma is what makes more people afraid to talk about it, share what they are going through. The fear of judgement, to being viewed as crazy and unstable might be what prevents someone from reaching out asking for help, and that’s not how we prevent suicides from happening.

So this is me, trying to talk about it, even though it’s hard and the words feels like they don’t fit in my mouth and that it’s just all a mess. If you are struggling, remember that you’re not alone and there is help out there for you. Please reach out to a family member, a friend, a co-worker, a therapist or whomever you feel that you can talk to.

    I too, am a stroke survivor. I had a stroke 6-6-19… Caused by un-diagnosed diabetes. I am type 2. I am 64, almost 65. I have moments where I feel unsure about this whole situation… & then I think you are Strong, you can do this. Changing the way I eat has helped me. I know you said you don’t want to discuss it! I have made a pact with myself, where I allow myself treats if I’ve eaten in a good way. At last check my A1c was 6.3.
    I’m sending you healing hugs from Missouri, USA. Michelle
