The feeling of invisibility is one of intense vulnerability and separation. Thankfully, you are using your gift of writing to connect with others and ease your emotional isolation. But, it does take a while to reach an audience. Fortunately, the writing process itself, even without readers, is healing. You have a message that needs to be told and heard. Keep at it. Eventually, your story will expand. As tragic as your suicide survivor experience is and as badly as it needs to be told, it’s not your only story.
