Options for shock/ bump reduction?

I own a 2010 Ridley X-Fire that I enjoy a great deal. My only complaint is that as it has no suspension, on occasions my elbows take a beating and Ive come close to losing control of the handlebars on unseen holes.
I do realize that a full suspension MTB would not behave this way but I enjoy this bike for many uses and have no desire to buy a full suspension bike.
My gf has a Specialized Diverge that features a shock absorber built into the fork tube that works like a charm. Is that something my Ridley can be retrofitted with or are there other options?. Current tire pressure is approx 30F 40R but of course varies per terrain and running 35 Clements.
