Minnesota Author, Speaker on Supporting Those with Disabilities

Dealing with Ambiguous Loss

A Minnesota author, speaker and columnist visited FOX 21 Sunrise this morning to talk about her new book and a conference being held in Duluth. 

Caryn Sullivan is the author of “Bitter or Better: Grappling with Life on the Op-Ed Page”.

Sullivan describes this book as a memoir of what she’s gone through in life that includes pieces she’s written for the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Sullivan has had to cope with the shocking loss of her husband in 2009 and also learn how to help her 24-year-old son who has been diagnosed with Autism. 

The author tells us these things are described as “ambiguous loss” and it’s something she’s learned how to deal with. 

Ambiguous loss is what she’s speaking on at the Association of Residential Resources (ARRM) Conference, which is taking place at the Duluth Convention Center Wednesday, May 11 and Thursday, May 12.

ARRM is a nonprofit association focused on helping people with disabilities lead successful lives.
