Posts about Bereavement by Suicide

One thing I've wanted to do recently is collect the links to all the posts where I've written about the death of my mum. (I found her body after she hung herself in 2004 when I was 16.) It turns out there are a lot less posts than I thought which I guess can only be a good thing. I hope that if you are experiencing the loss of a loved one, especially if it's through suicide, then these will help in some way. One of the worse things about bereavement for me is that there is so much stigma and taboo surrounding it. You can't talk to anyone what happened. No one knows what to say or how to talk to you any more, like you suddenly stop being human. People soon forget anyway. Those who haven't experienced a bereavement of someone that close to them can't understand that you never really get over the pain of the loss, but it is something you learn to live with over time. It just takes a really long time.

Finland 2005 (18 months on) - "Mum may have taken her life, but she is is not taking mine."

Whilst I was working in Japan in 2010 the 14th January that year would have been mum's 50th birthday. There's a brief mention of it in the third paragraph from the end.

Anniversaries

I've found it quite interesting to see how me, my writing & my grief have changed over the years.

Two Years Without Mum - Emo teen!

Three Years

Four Years

The Big Five - Questioning WHY someone kills themselves.

6 Years Without Mum

Years 7-11 can't have been much trouble or have held much significance as I didn't feel the need to write about them!

This year, 2016, it has been 12 years and I did a sad post and a happy post.
