"I agree with you Mark. There are times I can remember my sister with a smile on my face, and times where I cry just hearing her name. Our family is going through turmoil right now, and we need her wisdom to get through it."
"I have often heard grief described as waves. We go through periods where it is just a light ripple and others where we feel we are on a roller coaster. Even after a long period of time we can experience some very strong feelings. …"
"I lost my only sister 24 years ago. It seems like she never existed. No one talks about her. My mother is gone so I have no one to talk about her with. I miss her. She was my rock when we lost out son. She died a…"
"I know how you feel, Elyse. I lost my lost brother with lung cancer in October, 2008. I miss him so much. Most of the family don't talk about him and when I do, I get the feeling no one wants to listen. I may be a lot sensitive, but I miss him…"
"Haven't posted in quite some time, though I have the need for it. Seems like through this online group can be more support than your own family. Family should be there for you to share your grief, your feelings, your tears, though…"
Hope you got through Halloween. I really don't care for this night but since I am now in Cincinnati until March, my husband and I went out to dinner. It was nice but again I am in a strange place and miss being home in Sandy, UT. I especially miss my mountains and I am having a hard time getting my bearings here. Anyway, I do have my son, daughter-in-law and new grandson to visit. That was the reason for buying a house here so we could at least see them part of the year. I had a terrible time worrying about the trip and having to fly. I suffer from generalized anxiety disorder and take medication for it but I still was so nervous and scared....I had never flown before. My biggest problem came when the door was shut but I did it and here I am.
I truly em grateful for running into people on the internet who share my feelings and knowing there are others out there going through the same thing makes me think more about them. Time does help and I do find days where I've not thought much about my lost loved ones. Some days are like that depending on how busy I am with my son etc. Having distractions works great :) Ok, you take care and thanks so much. Valerie
I haven't been on here for about two years. Thank you so much for your comment. I still feel angry and sad and still cry almost everyday. We won the case against the hospital but since my sister was still married to her estranged husband who had been gone two years prior to her passing. Anyway he received the settlement. It's like a nightmare. He was never there for her and hec gladly accepted the money. I go to a bereavement group called grieve share. I still feel like crap.
I lost my sister Feb 28, 2013
We were extremely close and best friends all of our lives
We had a very special relationship. She was my soulmate.
She died of lung cancer that went to her brain and her battle lasted for only 2 years. She was only 57 years old. I miss her terribly and am still very sad about her death.
My life has changed and it is hard for me to see that my joy for life that I once had will ever return. I
Wish there were some people that could communicate with that have felt the loss of a sister in a deep way that I have. Thank you for having this sibling support group that I have been able to join and express my feelings
Thank you Lisa. I was recently in the hospital and was telling some of the nurses about what has happened since Sept of last year. they said I should join a support group. I said actually I did join one, but then i forgot the name of it. When I got back home and could view emails I saw I had received some emails from Legacy and then realized this was the one I joined. The last two siblings passing away this year left me even more devastated as they were the next two to me closest in age. To have them gone has been very hard on me. I lost two of my best friends when these two siblings passed away. I feel so lost. I use to talk to my sister every day. We went out to dinner twice a week, and I miss talking and seeing her. My brother who was deaf would always write to me and me to him. I miss his letters very much. He lived in Huntsville Al. I plan to get down there soon to visit my sister who lives down there. She has health issues too and I want to make sure I get to see her before one of us passes away. I am grateful i refound this site.
