Surviving Loss Using Grief Guidance Managing One's Disbelief Efficiently


On  Saturday, December 17, 2011 I received the most devastating phone call. My son Ty-Key Douglas had been shot and was critically injured. As the evening progressed, I learned my son’s best friend for over 15 years had also been shot, but he tragically didn’t survive. As you can imagine this double shooting was a devastating for both families. Our children were only 17 years old.

Ty-Key survived his injuries fueled by the hate of urban street beef. For five years he lived with a traumatic brain injury; where the bullet remained lodged in order to prevent paralysis. Due to this traumatic event Ty-Key suffered from several mental health conditions such as: survivor’s remorse, PTSD, anxiety, and depression.

On January 27, 2017, being only 22 years old, Ty-Key ended his life by way of suicide with a firearm. Ty-Key was a very loving young man known to family and friends as the lyrical genius “Mr. Slugg Mode”.

The Process was Key!

 "Through the transitioning of profound grief due to several life-changing losses, ‘The Key Process’ allowed me to tap into unfamiliar territories, places, and experiences I would have never perceived had I not gone through those eight years of loss. The one thing I never did was give up ─ I courageously pressed through paying my way forward to help others understand grief and how to heal it by awakening their spiritual self"
