I lost my little sister one year next month, to "suspicious" accidental drowning. Yet there was no investigation into the "suspicious" details. As soon as they determined there was water in her lungs, they threw out the "suspicious" aspect. Even though she was found totally naked in a body of water more than a half mile from her rental home.
I don't know if this thread is still active? I only know I would like very much to talk with someone that has lost their little sister. Maybe we could offer one another some solace. Thank you for your time, I hope to hear back from you.

It's been a while since I entered this community, ever since my sister died everything has been my responsibility. My sister and me were the only two kids my parents had. Once my sister dies my mom is diagnose with cancer and today 4 years after my sisters death I sit here mourning my mom deaths and feeling absolutely alone.  I lost two important people of my life.  I feel so lost....

It has been a year now. Sometimes it feels like yesterday, other times I want to remember the sound of her voice and can't. nothing is the same, everyday I wonder why this had to happen. I Am glad to be through the first Christmas, thanksgiving, birthday. I am hoping the ache lessens but the memories bring more joy.

It's been a little over 2 weeks since I lost my older sister and I can't even believe I'm talking about her death. I am still in shock/disbelief and am numb. I can't move forward, can't go back. I have nothing to look forward to anymore as any plans always included her. We were best friends, she was always there to help me and now I'm alone. I just can not believe she is gone. I want to die, because I don't think I will ever be able to lead a productive life alongside this heartbreaking grief. So for me, it's like life is worth nothing now. I just miss talking to her so much. I feel like I"m suffocating with the need to see and and talk to her again. It doesn't feel real, yet it is my waking nightmare forever.

I lost my sister on April 23 2015 and it kills me I am so sad all the time and I miss her so much it is like a nightmare for me I wish I could wake up from it R.I.P joy she was 36 I wish I could turn back time and help her and she would be here and not gone

My sister will be gone 2 years on Saturday. It is surreal to think that it has been 2 years since i heard her laugh, saw her smile, and talked to her. She was killed in a head on collision at the age of 21 and every day my heart breaks that she did not get to live her life. She had just been married a couple weeks earlier and it devastates me on a daily basis. RIp my dear little sister...I miss you every day.

My sister died 3 weeks ago. I can't even believe I'm writing those words. How on earth does anyone move on from grief this intense? She was 22 years old and my world. I think I'm still in shock/denial. I cry for hours at a time and am numb for hours at a time. Waking up every morning is horrific. If anyone has any words of comfort please share them with me. x

I lost my only sister almost three years ago. And the pain is still like it was yesterday. I can't seem to come to grips with it. It's like everyone has moved on, but I'm stuck. Everything reminds me of her. I don't ever want to forget her, but I do wish I could learn to cope with it.

I don't know how to express this so that it is meaningful and respectful but after reading several posts I want to say I am jealous of what you all have lost.  and I'm suggesting that you try to avoid taking for granted that you ever had it in the first place.  there were no guarantees, every day you get with someone you love and loves you back is a gift.  everyone assumes it's a given to quarrel but underneath it all, to be tight with your family. but it's not a given. my younger sister never considered my feelings or needs, she couldn't, she was too broken to. we have had a one way relationship for all of her life where she has caused me more emotional and financial pain than anything else on this earth could have. But I still feel the grief of her pain.  So even though I never received anything but torture from her, I still have the pain associated with her suffering. So that is why I hope you recognize that even if your sisters were your worst nightmare you would probably still be in so much pain. So the fact that they were your closest friend, etc, is something to be celebrated completely aside from your grief.  At least she gave you those memories, albeit cut short.
