"Totally agree about "sucking" having to meet this way!! My sister died 7 weeks ago Sunday, NOW I totally understand why people say they are just surviving. I find little joy and comfort in the little things, now. I'm just going…"
"I think you might be confused on how this happened. My brother did not overdose he took his own life. No I would not consider myself an expert in the field of addiction but I do know some on the subject as I have been in therapy for several years…"

"I guess you would consider it deliberate. He was living under a bridge and when he was found he had been dead for over 2 weeks. He was severely addicted to drugs and alcohol and could not beat his addictions in the end."

"Hey Maggie. That would be tough. Sometimes, it is best to go about grieving on your own terms. Maybe you and another co-worker can visit the grave site (if there is one) or you could release balloons in her/their memory on their one month…"
"Maggie, I understand completely. Less than 4 weeks after my brother died, a neighbor died (fell off an escalator in Atlantic City). It brought back so many emotions. Now, even with the Tuscan shootings, I am brought back to the news from my parents…"

I'm sorry for not posting sooner to question. I am so new here and I'm reaching out and again sorry for the delay in answering your questions. Yes, my little brother was very sick. He was living under a bridge when he took his life. He was my younger brother, only 41 when he took his life. He was addicted to drugs and alcohol and as I mentioned he was living under a bridge. Everyday that goes by I think of how I could have helped him more and the guilt just eats away at me slowly. He was my baby brother and I live with this pain constantly. I am in therapy for other reasons and it does help to talk about it but I find there are days when noone or nothing can break the guilt cycle that I feel when I think of losing my most precious sibling~~
Hi Crystal and I am truly sorry for your loss I know it is hard to handle sometimes more than other times but somehow we get through it. thank you for your comments and I do take them to heart. I do want to say that it was my sister not my brother that passed and my husband with in two weeks of each other. my sister suffered with cancer for almost a year and my husband also with cancer for almost 3 months before they passed. Let me tell u that God has control of everything and one of them is death he decides when it is our time to go. But it still hurts a whole bunch of alot......
I thank God for the time he did give me with my sister and my Husband. What makes it hard is when I cry I don't have my sister to run to or when I cry for her I don't have my husband to comfort me. So I end up just sobbing like a baby in a little ball on my bed. Then I feel a little better and fall asleep. I hope things start to look better for u and I send Hugs and more Hugs to u.
THANKS CRYSTAL. I APPRECIATE THE HELP AND SUGGESTIONS ABOUT SUPPORT GROUPS. I WISH YOU PEACE. AND WE WILL BE OK WITH THE HELP OF OUR FRIENDS, DON'T YOU THINK?? SOME DAYS ARE JUST HARDER THAN OTHERS AND I WOULD SAY CHRISTMAS IS NOT A GOOD DAY RIGHT NOW, MAYBE NEXT YEAR WILL BE BETTER. BUT THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP. WE ALL HAVE TO STICK TOGETHER BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME CRAZIES OUT THERE THAT JUST DON'T GET IT, NOT EVEN CLOSE TO GETTING IT. SANDY
