I lost my brother August 6 2003 and my dad June 4 2015 my brother I miss the most im handling it ok most days but some days I get sad and angry cuz he's not here when I needed him the most. With my dad we didn't get along very well and on his death bed he told me he wished I was never born and he's happy that he was dying so he could be with my brother and get away from me and don't have to pretend to love me anymore

The lost of a love one leaves one with so much pain ...yet being able to express the pain with those in like situation enable one to release the heavy heart of pain.   This site enable one to do just so, to give support to those in similar situation and understanding the emotional associated with the lost of a one one.  Cherish the memories and share them with those willing to offer the support.  I understand your lost!!

Helen, I am so sorry for all your losses. You definitely have been through many in a short period of time. You are doing the right thing in reaching out to speak to others who have lost loved ones and have moved on. When you have so many people close to you that have died, sometimes you need to reach out and go to grief/coping groups to actually be with people and meet new friends. This is a good start though. Keep doing legacy connect also. I am just saying if you go to a support group, you can make new friends who really understand what you are going through and then you are support for each other. You have a lot to work through and accept on each loss. Having a support system is so important. Do you have a minister or someone you can also talk with face to face. It may really help to have some of that face to face contact also, that is why I also suggested a group. I am sorry I did not get back to you sooner, I have had my teenager ill and going back and forth to ER's, so haven't been able to get on the computer as often as usual. I do apologize. You can do this!!! It just takes time. The first thing you need to do is talk about each of them. Talk about your feelings, your fears, and anything else that comes to mind. Write as often as you need to. In the meantime, talk to your brother, sister and your husband. I just lost my dad in November very unexpectedly, and my brother in 1981. I always talk to them. It just gives me comfort, because I really believe they are up there helping me out. Just remember, you will get through this. If you talk to others and get to the point where you can accept these losses and grieve and move on to cope with the loss, you will become a stronger person. Each loss makes us grow and become more the person we are meant to be. This is hard to realize and care about now, but it is true. I wish you peace. Write anytime. I will get back to you as soon as possible.

I lost a sister in May of 2008 and a brother in March of 1993. Although I have another sister and brother, I am not close to them ( my sister does not speak to me) as I was to my brother and sister. My sister was 18 months older than me and we were just getting closer the last few years. My brother and I were close all our lives. My sister called me every day and my brother would help me whenever I needed it. I do not have that support anymore and I am so lonesome for them. I just lost my husband June 10, 2009 so I am really alone. I am trying to reach people who are in the same situation and can share our grief. I have no close friends and other family members who were close died also. I miss my brother and sister especially since I need their love and support now more than ever. What can I do?
