Alexandra Wyman was plunged into grief when her husband died by suicide. The sudden loss of the love of her life left her reeling with unanswered questions. She wrote a book, The Suicide Club: What to Do When Someone You Love Chooses Death, where she explores her journey of mourning and healing after losing her husband. The book offers a road back to peace and joy for anyone who has lost someone close to them to suicide.
In this episode, Alexandra shares how she makes sense of her grief, her decision to write a book and how she now shares her story with others. Learn more about Alexandra here: https://www.forwardtojoy.com/

It’s important to stress that these episodes are not meant to take the place of any work you’re doing with your therapist or doctor. In fact, please run these ideas by your counselor or doctor before you act on them to make sure you are ready for them or even fit for the suggestions. I can’t stress this enough, each person is unique and their situation is unique so please talk to your dr before starting anything new I may be suggesting.
