I have blogged about my loss and there is a personal journey to be lived, where I grieve and remember my son, and find out how to live this new, changed life.
I am not the type of person to turn inwards and shut myself away. I want to reach out and tell my story, not for personal satisfaction, but to find meaning and purpose from loss.
I have two missions, one is to help support other parents and form a network of parents bereaved by suicide.
The other is to send a message to any young person who maybe considering this tragic action, to attempt to give them a glimpse of the pain they would leave behind. It may make no difference if someone is really determined, but maybe, just maybe it may speak to one person, who may go for help as a result.
Here is my message to anyone who has had serious suicidal thoughts; please watch and listen to my story.
Anyone affected who wishes to contact me please go the the Contact Anne page.
