No, it doesn't get better like evryone says!! It's been 8 months since I lost my BEAUTIFUL Sister. The pain remains the same!! I don't know how to deal with this. Everyday something or someone reminds me of her. Oh how much I want to see her. To hold her and tell her everything will be ok. I do have a voice mail from her that I can hear her voice anytime I want. Thank the Good Lord for that atleast! It's just so hard! She was my Big"Little" Sister. I just miss her so much!!

I lost my little brother Davey on Feb. 4th. His passing was sudden, and has left all of my family in a state of shock. Tomorrow marks 2 weeks, I am trying to "get back to normal" but NOTHING feels normal anymore.

My brother was killed by a dump truck that tboned him in the drivers door. I was 6 months pregnat with my daughter when he was killed. He was 23 when he died. I have not recieved an aaccident report. I don;t know what happened all I know is I lost my baby brother. I tried to not get that upset because I didn't want a miscarrige on top of that. I find myself still having nightmares and missing him like a piece of me has died, Im so tired of hearing time heals all wounds. He died in July last year.I can't help myself for blaming the dunp truck driver he took my brothers life and he walked away. How do get rid of the nightmares and the blame? Im his big sister his protector and I couldn't save him how do I let that go?

I lost both of my sister's, one on Oct. 23rd, 2008 and the other on Dec. 7th, 2008. My older sister went missing and was missing just days shy of a year, her body was found in her car submerged in a river. My younger sister was killed in a car accident also where she was ejected from the windshield. How can this be my life from here out? I get sick of hearing I am an only child now, I am not an only child. I had two sisters, I just miss them so very much.

Anyone looking to have their sibling remembered, go onto www.angelsacrosstheusa.com. Perfect way to keep their memory alive.

I can understand that anger induced mentality that happens when you feel like no one 'gets' or understands where you're going through. I experienced that too [and still do sometimes].
Everyone has their own time frame on grieving. I am by no standards a model of what grieve should look like as it has taken me years to finally come to terms with my brother's death. I don't think people can ever understand what the loss of a sibling does to the surviving sibling[s]. 3 weeks is still very fresh, as it should be and I don't think anyone can fully grieve in that short amount of time. Make time for yourself, whatever that entails, to ensure that you are taking the steps necessary for your grief.

I'm truly sorry for your loss,

Last night I was so furious with my husband. I was having a moment to myself and I started to cry. My husband walk ‘s in the room and asked me why was I crying. that qustion got me so angry.” Its has been only 3weeks since my sister passed away”, I said to him. he apologize but it still did not change my mood I was so angry. I don’t understand how can people move on so quickly and I am still in a stand still. I don’t know how to move on .my sister was my everything the only person that understood me. we did everthing together how can I act like nothing is wrong with me. Last week I went to a doctor appiontment while I was in the waiting room I was thinking to myself if only the people here understood that I was in such grief. I feel so alone

This March will mark the 5th year since I lost my brother. Losing my brother is one of those events that immediately changed my life. My shock and disbelief of my brother's death switched something inside of me that resulted in me shutting down emotionally for these past few years. I just started processing his death fairly recently which feels shameful in a lot of ways, but it has taken me this long to get out of denial.
Tomorrow is his birthday, he would have been 38. I miss him terribly and feel completely overwhelmed with regards to the mourning process.
I'm usually a very private person, so I'm sure over time I will contribute more of my story as I've been told it's important to the grieving process.

If you're still reading this, thank you, I truly appreciate it.

My beautiful sister just recently passed away from the horrible diseaseof lupus. She was diagnosis with systimic lupus 5 years ago after the brith of her son. A year ago her health got worse when doctor diagnosis her with pulmonary hypertension along with lupus she did not have a fighting chance. after fighting the battle with (SLE and PH) her boby could not take fight more. We just recently celebrated her 32 brithday ,I never image it would be the last brithday I would spend with her.
