    3. Secondary Wounds

      Sometimes, survivors experience additional pain when others do not understand, let them down, or blame them. These additional "wounds" are very painful because they are already raw with grief. Has this happened to you? Would you like to share about it?

    4. Guilt, Blame & Forgiveness

      Guilt and Blame are quick to surface in the swirl of emotions following a suicide. As healing takes place, many survivors find that Forgiveness does not change the past, but it changes some of the pain of the past and unlocks a door to the future. What have you noticed about guilt, blame or forgiveness?
