Hi Kathy,

Sorry for the loss of your brother Joshua. I have lost my younger brother many years ago. However, I didn't join Legacy at that time until my only child/my son Joe lost his life 5 years ago when a drunk driver was careless.

I have since joining for loss of a child joined loss of parents and loss of a sibling. I recommend that you join the group here for loss of a sibling. You will be comfortable identifying with people who understand your thoughts feelings and actions. However, most often people say the same things and do the same things such as drink too much, do drugs and abuse food. It's all basically the same. The most important thing for you now is to try to rest when you can. You may need to talk with your pastor then he/she can direct you to a bereavement group. Or look in the local newspapers because there are often groups that advertise to join their bereavement group. They can last about 8 weeks. Last year in a local newspaper I joined at the same church my son Joe made Communion and Confirmation many years ago. It gave me comfort that I didn't find when I had gone to a group sponsored by local funeral homes. Some people go to a counselor. If you can't find a group I recommend that you go to a therapist who can listen to you. You didn't mention parents or any other family or friends. How are they doing? I hope they are there for you during this time. But for an immediate connection please do join "Loss of a Sibling."

Be kind to yourself.
