#007 Michelle Miller – “The Widow Bitch” – Grieving with an Attitude

Who the F*** is Michelle?

Michelle never wanted to be a professional writer. She wanted to be left the hell alone, thank-you-very-much, as she lived a nice quiet little life as a special needs aide and Sunday school teacher in Small Desert Town, USA with her second husband, two children, and their proverbial white picket fence.

Upon a series of unfortunate vulva videos in her second husband’s saved email files one fine day in September of 2011, this life changed. By 2014 Michelle would be a thirty-one year old jobless, suicide-widow, debilitated by depression and anxiety. She would spend most of her nights inebriated and on bad dates, followed by the ultimate nightcap: yelling the F word at a God she no longer believed in while in her back yard  wearing a bathrobe and heels.

She would spend most of her mornings on various bathroom floors completely immobilized and sick to her stomach by the thought that she had wasted her twenties married to two men who cheated on her and then attempted suicide when she mustered up the courage to leave them. Continue reading…

    I’m so grateful to have found you Michelle. Not just because I am a suicide-widow, but because I am moved by your honest and thoughtful communicating of grief and the toll it takes on our old lives. You are accurate that we also grieve our own death because who we were goes with our husbands. There is no turning back so we rebuild. Thank you for making how differently we all grieve okay because feeling ashamed of myself over how others think I should be doing it is just to much ask.
