International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day

Today, November 19, is International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day. I started to write a special post for today, but I just can’t finish it.  As someone who lost her birth mother to postpartum depression driven suicide, and six years ago almost followed the same path, I am giving myself to not finish this painful post…
