Suicide: Breaking Through

Today marks the seventh anniversary of my husband's funeral AND my cousin's suicide. I've learned the reason for suicide began long before my first attempt and, as it turns out, also is true for my cousin.

Hi, I just found this group and it suits my writing to a T. I'm also a member of the Blooming Late group. After working as a reporter and photojournalist for 35 years I retired and tried for two years to be retired, before going back to work as a reporter for a small newspaper connected to the Orange County Register. I also returned to school to complete my degree, and after 12 years, finally received my B.A. in creative nonfiction. I chose that degree when I fell in love with essay writing at Western Washington University. Now, I'm completing the first draft of a memoir, that was my major project and final senior project for graduation. I look forward to hearing and reading everyone's comments in this group. Aloha.

I spent 6 years crocheting a beautiful blanket after my second suicide attempt and learned what love is.

Suicide note: Check. Pills: Check. Goodbye cruel world.

This is part two of my three-part series on suicide. This time we visit my second attempt and how deep into the abyss I had fallen before getting back up.

What does your personal truth have to do with the theme of your writing? Read my new blog Obsession Notebook II: How to Excavate Your Truth at Writing Women's Lives.

Today is my son's 14th birthday. It is also my husband's 7th birthday ... in Heaven. Today I honor my late husband and talk about the day Edd's music died.

I struggle with endings, both my own and everyone elses.  Do you?

Suicide begins long before an attempt. I know. I tried twice. Read my story in a new three-part series.
