6 Years- Still So Hard

Well last month was the 6 year passing anniversary of my brother Mike.  I've  learned a lot about grief on this journey. I do know for sure that time really has not made any of this any better.  It may have been 6 years, but the pain on some days is so Raw and so real it still takes me a minute to ground myself and be okay.  I quoted on Feb 10/2018 "that my love for you lives in my grief for you" I think is true for me.  Overall I am still so grateful for having mike in my life for 32 years.  I…See More

Coming up 5 years

Well next month it will be 5 years since my brother passed away from alcoholism at 32 years old.  It feels crazy that amount time has passed... I think I may have been living in a bubble the first 2 or 3 years just managing daily life and trying to get through.  Other people share that it gets easier ..... I cant say I agree.  Although I moved on with life and have a great life, it has not remotely made a difference in the amount of pain I feel, or the fact that he inst coming back.  It feels…See More

Time sort of flies

Well been almost 22 months and I don't feel like much has changed in my way of grief.  My parents are still crippled and i find it really hard to get near acceptance.  I guess we don't get over death.  With xmas here soon It breaks my heart. I'm not sure i will ever enjoy xmas the same for many years to come. I know that my brother would want me to live life to the max and move on. Im gonna do my best to do that one day at a timeSee More

Jennifer,Sorry for the loss of your brother as well.It's devastating no matter how much time has passed,it feels like yesterday.We all have questions,some can be answered and some not.It's just hard to accept that they may never be and the "Why" can be overwhelming.I go to a bereavement group monthly but I don't talk much,hard to talk in front of many people.Then I leave disappointed and question should I keep going.

DEAR JENNIFER
SO SORRY TO HEAR OF UR BROTHER'S PASSING & UR DIFFICULTY IN COPING. I TOO HAVE LOST SEVERAL LOVED ONES IN MY LIFE MOST RECENTLY MY SISTER. AFTER MY MOM AND DAD PASSED, I DIDN'T THINK I COULD GO ON. BUT WITK GOD'S GRACE & THE PASSAGE OF TIME U CAN ACTUALLY BEGIN TO RETURN TO A SEMBLANCE OF UR FORMER LIFE. NO IT WON'T EVER GO AWAY BUT IT BECOMES SOMETHING THAT DOESN'T NAG AT U EVERYDAY. UR BROTHER'S SWEET SOUL MUST B IN HEAVEN & WHOEVER PERPATRATED CRIMES AGAINST HIM AS A CHILD WILL HAVE TO ANSWER TO THE ALMIGHTY ONE DAY. MAY U & UR FLY BEGIN UR HEALING PROCESS AND SUFFER NO LONGER. BLESS U ALL.
SINCERELY
JO ADAMS
