November 17th


It’s a date that I hold near and dear to my heart.  It’s suicide survivors day.  I am a survivor of a tragic event in my family, and all of my current family members are survivors.  

I’d like to take this time to reach out to the people out there I keep in touch with on a regular basis, or to those of you who simply like to follow me and stay quiet.  🙂  

PLEASE know if you’re a survivor, you’re not alone.  Reach back out to me.  Email me at birminghambellblog@gmail.com or comment below if you want.  I will keep emails between you and I only.  I would love to have others to connect to that are in the same boat as myself.  Send me resources…whatever you would like really!!

XOXO

Bell

 

Oh!  I’ve also added a new button to the blog for suicide prevention, check that out.  

AND I want to share one of my personal favorites in suicide prevention sites – http://www.towriteloveonherarms.com .  I’ve been a customer of theirs for a while now, and why not grab some cool things and donate at the same time!?

This is a photo that reminds me of my lost loved one.

  1. Hey Bell,
    I had no idea. We lost Chris’s dad in 1999. I am sorry to hear it. I will check out your sites. I am sure they will be beneficial. Even though it was so long ago, it still hurts! Love you girl!

  2. Even though I am crying as I type this, I am glad you posted it. I lost my dad in 2004 and lost my cousin just one year ago this week. I’m sorry to hear you have lost someone also. HUGS TO YOU TODAY!

  3. I’m sorry to hear that! I have not experienced suicide in my direct (blood) family, but my best friend who I’ve grown up with since we were born, her brother (who was like my brother) commited suicide and it was a really hard situation to go through. Also, in high school we had some suicides as well. It’s never an easy thing to go through but I hope that you find yourself surrounded with love today! ❤

  4. I’ve been lucky enough that suicide isn’t something that’s touched my family, so I don’t really understand what you’re going through. But know that you’re not alone, and that you’re doing a very good thing by putting out your experience and resources.
