Suicide survivor

Hi everyone! I’m so glad I found this group and hope I can help one person fight another day or help a survivor know you can get through this. A little bit about my story, I grew up with my amazing mother. Unfortunately she ended her life (this was about 12th attempt throughout the years) when I was only 15 years old and I found her 5 days later hanging in our basement. My life was shattered. Clearly there is so much more to the story but here I am 20 years later and I have came to terms with her decision. Trust me lots of self care, therapy, grief groups, finally getting sober (8 years now) and more. Please feel free to ask me anything. Thanks for reading everyone (PS the picture I included is 1 of the 3 I have of her, one is her and the other one is my mom and me when I was little !!! #Suicide #SuicideSurvivor #greif #MentalHealth #SuicideLoss #AfterSuicideLoss #Depression #whatifs #Guilt #missmymom #SuicideSquad #suicidesucks

Moving mountains

It’s not easy that’s for sure. It’s difficult, it’s challenging, it’s overwhelming, and sometimes completely unfair.

Today I chose to look at that mountain and clobber it. Walk straight up to the top and win.

You see my mother is in a rehabilitation center that is less than sub par that’s for one and I am trying my hardest to have her transferred and the hell out of there to a new facility. Takes a lot of phone calls, some subtle attitude and tongue lashing, calls to administration, directors and last but not least insurance companies.

I will get this accomplished no matter what mountain may stand in front of me.
