Well its been 96 days now since mike my brother died. I have been in shock all over again for a week now.  the emotions are so hard to keep up with.  feel like im lost and like life is just meaningless. I have a beautiful 6 year old son and i love him more than words can ever say.  I know i have to get it together, but it is so hard to even want too at this point. Every day i just think about my brother and why this happened.  Life just seems to be so cruel. I cant take time off work and i want to just go away and grieve. Get up- work, be a mom, social life- future. Going to a mdium tonight and hoping to talk to my brother.  any suggestions on shock again. I ve known for 96 days he is gone, but it is hitting me so hard now.

Hello Jennifer,

I hope my words will give you some sort of comfort.  Your Brother is fine.  You are fine.  It is normal for you to grieve.  Didn't Jesus Christ grieve over Lazarus and he  knew he could resurrect him back to life.  So, loosing a close sibling - one that is near and dear to you do not go away over night.  You will have your moments of being happy and then it could be 3 years later and due to a song, a look from a person or pictures  - it will take you back to that place in your heart for your brother.

Just remember, it is a normal process to feel.  My Dad died in 2006 - and even now when I hear a certain song  in order to cope sometimes - I have to leave or turn the music off - because it brings back so many memories.  However, I do gain comfort from the scriptures as I know I will see my Dad again. (Revelation 21:3,4)

No one can tell you how long you should grieve and when you should - talk to "Almighty God" and he will help you to endure the pain and suffering you are experiencing.

So sorry again for the tragedy. Your brother was obviously very ill and self medicating himself as he did. He wanted it to be over.! The pain and anguish to stop.!  He has gone to" his rest" And is asleep as Ecclesiastes 9:6,10 tells us " the dead are conscious of nothing," they cannot help us or hurt us. Your dear brother is asleep and resting waiting for the resurrrection to life in perfect health on a restored earth free from "sickness, sorrow or DEATH" Rev 21:3,4. Be comforted that he hurts no more. Go ahead an grieve it is a process that takes time~ all the time you need ~ But don't go to mediums to deceive you and take your money. Lean on the God of comfort 

Psalms 34:18 says " God is near to those that are broken at heart. And to those who are crushed in spirit he saves

2 Corinthians 1:3,4 says Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in a our tribulations. Take care of your self and the baby. Do what you can about eating  well and getting some rest
