Complicated grief ,

Thank you for validating my feelings

It will be 1 year since my high school sweetheart and husband of 26 years died by suicide on Father’s Day. My two young adult daughters and I are left behind to figure out what this new meaning of life is all about. All of your guests including your daughter have been phenomenal in helping me understand that there is hope and we can only move forward to honor an amazing father and husband. I loved what Chester Bennington told his wife “We can not live in despair”. That is what I have been doing and I need to move forward. Thank you

Amazing speaker!

Listened to episode with Chloe and found it amazing. She is a most beautiful speaker. She is so articulate and has wisdom around this most painful and difficult subject/situation beyond her years. She can use her gift of her voice to help so many suffering with this pain. May she find transcendence and post traumatic growth - growing beyond her suffering to something greater than she and be an amazing contributor to the world of mental health awarenss, and specifically suicide education.

❤️ this podcast

I am a big ABC/GMA fan. I listened to Dr Ashton’s interview with Dan Harris on his podcast in regards to her book. When I ran across this podcast and saw that she interviewed Talinda Bennington I had to listen . I loved Linkin Park. I connected with so many of their songs during some VERY difficult times in my life. I lost my Dad to suicide on July 24th 2008. My Dad dying really messed me up in so many ways. Every July, I feel like I relive the days leading up to his suicide. My dreams become more vivid and my Dad is usually in them. The songs I listen to during this time will bring me back. My sisters & Mom have all dealt with my Dads suicide in different ways.
Thank you for the podcast. Thank you for bringing the subject of suicide to the forefront.
