Many of you have been following Jessica's story. SpouseBUZZ has received a lot of email and comments from concerned readers over the past few weeks. Last night, Jessica sent a message to our readers and asked that I post it here on SpouseBUZZ.
I wanted to thank the SpouseBuzz team and the SpouseBuzz readers for their support, thoughts, and prayers. I've been released from the hospital and am now in the recovery process. I cannot claim I am "better", but I can say I am doing better than I was. I was astonished at the outpouring of support and the number of cards and emails I received. It really made me realize how interconnected we all are. I was also flabbergasted at how many people commented on my blog or emailed me to say they had similar experiences/thoughts or new of someone who had. I continued to be flabbergasted at how many people told me they knew of a spouse who had ended her own life.Keep Jessica in your thoughts and prayers. As I said in the beginning, Jessica is, and always will be, a part of our family.
I will be blogging about some of my experiences and thoughts over the past three weeks on my personal blog. I will also be talking about some of my recovery. I figure if anything good can come out of this, we can raise an awareness of mental health and suicide prevention for spouses.
Once again, thank you all for your support!
