11-17-12 International Survivor of Suicide Loss Day

11-17-12 International Survivor of Suicide Loss Day

I just got done watching a Support Webinar, check it out “here”

As the Holiday season begins, we tend to get a bit sad. Even though we don’t do this consciously, it happens every year. When will I get over it? Never!

I have gotten to a place in my life where I am functioning at a much higher capacity, but I will never be the same. The loss of a child cannot be completely healed. I will forever carry this burden with me. There simply isn’t a way to “Get over It”.

I am very grateful to be where I am at today, and I think I have learned how to better manage my grief. So, please don’t feel sorry for me, but instead be happy for me. I am very happy for myself!

Love to you all!

Walk for Suicide Prevention Awareness Saturday June 9th in Reedley, CA

Will you walk with us for Suicide Prevention Awareness on Saturday June 9th in Reedley, CA?

 

Here is the deal…..as you know, my husband Tony and I were supposed to be in San Francisco this weekend to walk in memory of my son Cliff.  Well, since we have not raised the minimum $1,000 per person, we cannot attend and walk unless we pledge to give that amount sometime in the near future.  Unfortunately that is just not possible right now.  So, we will be walking in Reedley Saturday instead!

Please join us at the Reedley Cemetery at the entrance closest to the office. ( 2185 S. Reed Ave., Reedley, CA)  We will be 3/4 of the way down where my son Cliff is buried.  We will meet at 5:30pm and then we will walk from the cemetary down and through Reedley until dusk where we will meet again at the cemetary and share the moment with eachother and just talk about the loved ones we miss due to suicide.

I hope to see you there as we bring awareness to suicide.

Please email me with any questions you might have, and please pass the word along so anyone who would like to join us can!  😉

Depression and BiPolar Disorder via AFSP.org

Please take the time to watch both of these videos, and share!  We never know who may be suffering in silence.

I will be walking in memory of my son Cliff in San Francisco June 9th. Please consider making a donation to support me and the awareness of suicide prevention.

Monday Night Call inspired by Graeme Cowan

Hello everyone!
As you may or may not know, I have a Monday night call that I do each and every week. This is my outreach to you, so if there is ever anything specific you would like to cover, please let me know. I would love to share whatever you might be needing.
On Monday, 12-12-11 @ 7pm PST you can call into my call. I am no longer broadcasting via Blog Talk Radio due to technical difficulties I had last week, but I do post the call onto Blog Talk Radio after so it can be listened to by others.

Here is the call in information….

Call 559-546-1200 Meeting ID# 440-924-308

This information will not change. The call in number and meeting ID will be the same every week.

So, mark your calendars for Monday evening and call in about 5 minutes before the start.

 

This week I will be talking about an author I found by the name of Graeme Cowan. He suffered from severe depression for over 5 years.
I also attended a webinar that he did today on enhancing your wellbeing during the holiday season. I will share information from that webinar as well.
He has also written a book, and I have an excerpt from that book that may give you an idea of whether or not you would like to purchase it.

Worldwide Candle Lighting

On the second Sunday in December every year, a Worldwide Candle Lighting ceremony in conjuction with “The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting”, are held.

These ceremonies are for families that have experienced the death of a child, sibling, or granchild, no matter how long ago, or at what age.

At 7pm local time, a candle is lit for every child being remembered. So as they are lit over the entire globe, the light shines for 24 hours to commemorate and honor children, siblings, and granchildren of all ages who have died from any cause and transcends all ethnic, cultural, religious, and political boundaries.

Take a look at this video…….

Whether or not there is a service in your area, please join me in lighting a candle at 7pm your local time this Sunday, December 11, 2011.

Thank you~

Priscilla, Cliff’s Mom
