Dawne, I'm so sorry you lost your brother.  I lost my oldest son, Bryan, in December.  I'm still a little horrible with concentration, sleep.  He was 16.  Eventually, it will taper.  I am not as bad today as I was a few months ago--honestly, I can't even tell you what happened in January or February of this year because those months are a total blur.  Prior to losing Bryan, I could have told you a lot of details, but that's just part of coping and grieving such a devastating loss.  Don't beat yourself up to much, do what you can do when you can do it, and the rest can wait.

I am so sorry for the loss of your brother. I lost my brother in February. I am still having trouble concentrating, it's normal. I'm better than I was a few months ago but my memory & concentration are definitely off. Give your self time and don't push it. I can't believe I am saying these things, just a few months ago people were saying them to me and I thought they were crazy, I thought I'd never feel better. I'm not saying you will ever be the same, I feel like I am beginning to find a new normal for myself. One where I no longer have a sibling, it's very weird how many things have changed for me, but some things have actually been positive and I don't think they would have happened with out his passing. I feel like he is looking out for me now.
