I am honored

thank you

To get to know you and your loved ones that died by suicide or suffered a substance-related death.

I’ve gotten to know their souls and yours.

There are many threads of commonality I have noticed. The soulful hugs, the smiles, the reaching out to others. Love of music. Creativity, love of animals. Most were deep feelers.

Some who have told their stories here have never shared them with another human being. Others are retelling theirs with a different perspective.

Some of you have lived experience and still struggle. Others of you have found recovery for some time.

All of you have helped us understand substance use disorder, mental illness and suicidal thoughts and grief from multiple perspectives.

I see in the comments, in messages, social media and the statistics how much your posts mean to others.  How others have identified with your pain and your successes, your grief and your struggle. I see others having the guts to tell their stories because you told yours. That’s what erases stigma. I’m so proud of being in this tribe and your contributions to emotionally naked.

I have created a category call guest posts. And a new page on how to submit a story.

Thank you for your trust in me.

The sharing is comforting to us when we share our burdens and see we aren’t alone. We offer support and respond with compassion and charity.

  2. You have a beautiful ministry, Anne Moss, to a wide spectrum of people. You love, exhort, care for and educate all of us while crushing the stigma. Thank you! ❤️

  3. Anne Moss, you have been such a model of grace, transparency and bravery. You’ve led the way for so many others. It has been humbling to read these stories, to hold space for these families and share in their pain and love.
