Blog for Survivors of Suicide Loss

By Jackie Rosen, FISP Executive Director/CEO Welcome to the new FISP blog for Survivors of Suicide Loss. The purpose of this blog is to let you tell your story and help other survivor know that they are not alone. Negotiating through the grief process after losing a loved one by suicide is very difficult. Healing takes time and help. No one should take this journey alone. The purpose of this blog is to help Survivors heal. I found that writing has helped many of the Survivors that I have dealt with over the years. FISP works with a group of Survivor mothers who text each other all the time when they need to talk to someone. They helped us realize, that a blog would be a great way for Survivors to interact with each other and help each other through that journey. Our Survivor of Suicide Loss Support Groups are there by monthly but sometimes you just need to get something off your chest right away, This is your way to reach out and get involved with others who have shared your experiences. Your participation in this blog can make a difference in both another Survivor’s life and yours as well. I will add articles and healing words each month to help keep the blog interesting and educational. We invite you to do the same. FISP welcomes you to your blog.

    Hello. This is Jelaine, mother of Cody, who took his life two years ago. You may have seen his video on fisponline.org. Anyway, I wanted to reach out to anyone who is new to this unfortunatee journey. As much as you feel that you can’t go on and that the pain is unbearable, you can and will, with the help of family and friends and those of us who have started this path before you. If you just reach out to those you trust with your feelings. Everyone grieves differently so don’t expect your spouse or child to respond the same way. I am not a therapist or counselor, just a mom who has been there and is still traveling along the road This April 22 will be the second anniversary. And I am here to tell you that there are still smiles to be had, still good times ahead. Yes, life will be forever bittersweet but it makes one appreciate the moments of true happiness. I am here if you ever want to talk and will share the journey with you…
