Out of the Darkness Overnight

I am committing right now, that CliffStory.com will be attending its first fundraising event on June 9-10, 2012 at the “Out of the Darkness Overnight” 18 mile walk. How many of you will join me? Take a look at this video……

I have never walked 18 miles in my life, but in the memory of my son, and all of the other sons, daughters, moms, dads, aunts, uncles and cousins out there…..I will walk for YOU!

I would love to have as many of you as possible join me in this walk! We must bring more awareness to Suicide and reach out to those suffering!

I have committed to raise a minimum of $2500, so I must begin asap!

If you are interested in joining with me either by walking, or perhaps donating….please send me an email to [email protected]

God Bless You!

International Survivor of Suicide Loss-Did you attend?

Yesterday was “International Survivor of Suicide Loss Day”, did you attend a conference near you? Did you watch it online?

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was working, but managed to attend the majority of the conference. I am so glad that I did.

I know that many of you suffer silently, as I did as well for over 6 years. I did start blogging at about the 4 year mark, but never attended anything that would help me with my grief, nor did I read anything.

After attending my first Survivor of Suicide loss group meeting last week, and then followed up with this conference, I am now very ready to read and be a part of whatever I can get my hands on.

When you are around those who share a similar situation as your own, it really does help. I know I had people when my son first passed that tried to get me to go to something similar, but I was not ready.

And, if you are like I was, this online conference is perfect for you to get an idea of how you might feel at a live meeting. At first, I did not want to talk. I was so emotional, and I do not like to appear weak or be out of control. I am not after pity, nor do I want people to feel sorry for me. Perhaps that is why I suffered in silence for as long as I did. Just know that attending a group meeting such as this can be very healthy. It will let you know that what you are currently feeling, whether it be guilt, anger, etc. you are not alone! I think knowing that it is a normal thing grants comfort. At least I hope it will for you.

So, here is the link to the conference that I attended yesterday:

You can also watch the 2010 conference if you would like. I think I am going to go back and watch again as I did miss some parts of it, and also watch the 2010 conference. Every person gives you a different perspective, and I am now seeking this comfort myself.

I desire to help as many as I can, so I need to understand how differently everybody grieves.

I will be hosting a live call on Thanksgiving morning at 8am pst. If you would like to listen in, or perhaps even call in, here is the link for that call, I look forward to connecting with you!

Have a blessed week, and hopefully with each others help, we can get through this next week without too much pain!

There are many conferences being held around the world at the same time, and there will be an interactive online chat available after the event.

If there is not a conference being held near you, there will be an online conference you can join as well.

Go here: http://www.afsp.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.viewPage&page_id=FEE7D778-CF08-CB44-DA1285B6BBCF366E to get all of the details.

I plan on attending even though I do have to work on Saturday. And if I miss any part of it, there will be a replay available.

So, lets support eachother as we grieve our loss!

God Bless You!
