My name is Kathy and my husband completed suicide 2 years ago. Although I found endless support from close friends and family, nothing compared to sharing your feelings with others who have experienced such an experience. The support, wisdom and care I found on Alliance of hope was amazing. I am from Malta, a very small humble island in the mediterranean. Although there are endless support groups, there is nothing related to losing someone to suicide. So when I was browsing the net and came across this site and started reading posts shared by survivors, I felt like I could finally relate. I finally spoke to people without getting worried of being judged. Sharing your experience and listening to others advice certainly was very positive for me. This forum is a blessing and a place where I found solace. Away from the busy outside world. The way this forum has been set up is great. It is not only a place to share your grief and heart break, it is also a place where you can share your accomplishments during the process of healing. Losing a loved one to suicide, leaves us with very complex grief, unanswered questions, shock and guilt. My fellow survivors at the Alliance of hope, helped me accept my situation further and also helped me with certain grief issues I had. The Alliance is not just a place I visit when I'm down and at my wits end, but it is a place of comfort for me and is becoming like a small second family for me. It has also motivated me to get the ball rolling to perhaps get a suicide survivor group going here. The Alliance of hope forum is something very special, it is reaching people from all over the world and all aspects of life. Today I am doing very well, I am in love with a fantastic man and thankful for having my precious daughter. I still feel the need to visit the forum, and would also like to continue visiting the forum. It has done nothing but good for me. Thank you Alliance of hope xxx
