Mollie, you suffer greatly because you loved so deeply!
Emotional pain causes real physical pain and either one takes time to heal. Suffering is like going through the refiner's fire. You will become a better person because of what you are having to endure.
You and Donna are new to this SOS club. No one ever chose this fate but I believe most of us have developed a greater faith in God along with inner strength we never knew we possessed. Keeping you all in my prayers :-)!!!

@Mollie, I agree with your self diagnosis of a broken heart :) Kind of feels like being Humpty Dumpty, doesn't it?

Thank you Theresa and Margo for your compassion and comments. I've been reading on the site for a bit many of us in pain, much to relate too and reaching out. Someone said they felt like they were grieving alone..thats me too. Family and friends don't mention my brother's name anymore and if I do it's like they look at eachother and seem to say "she said his name" now what? Most of the time the subject is changed and I know that my family and friends want to go on with life and we all should but dang I know they are in pain and shock too because they loved him, and miss him too. Why don't they want to talk about the suicide? I am going to Christian counseling..even my counselor doesn't understand the bond that my brother and I had..she says it's post traumatic stress..I say it's a broken heart that only I can feel.

Hi Mollie, I'm so sorry for your loss, and the trauma you have experienced by being the one to find your brother.  I'm glad you found us here at this site, and that we have the privilege of walking alongside you in your sorrow.  As Margo says, we are here for one another, so please continue to reach out as you experience hard things and need a safe place with others who know and understand what you are going through.  XXOO

Mollie, Your loss is so recent, sorry you have become a member of this group under such difficult circumstances. There are wonderful people you will be able to connect with here. Everyone is really supportive and going through or have gone through what you are experiencing. Everybody is at a different stage of grieving but all have the same desire to help one another. Stay strong! God Bless!

Hello..I'm new to the site but thankful I found it. Seems like yesterday I walked into my brothers house and found him dead..but it was actually Nov 7th, 2012. I don't know who I am anymore and I miss him so much today.

Just came back from "out of the darkness" walk. Weather was perfect! Quite a few hundred people participated. The speeches at the beginning were very emotional. Seeing so many people who have lost loved ones to suicide is heart wrenching, to say the least. Once the walk started, it was like one huge happy family! I think our connection made all the difference in the world! Those of you that are able to participate in future walks will be so glad you did!
