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.

It's been almost two years since my only sister is gone and the pain is still the same.

I lost my little sister. Andraya was a beautiful gift from god. We adopted her into our family whenshe was only 3 days old, and at the age of 8, it was like I got my very own living doll. Growing up, because of our age difference, we did not always see eye to eye (literally and figuratively) but I loved her with every fiber of my body because she was such a specail and unique girl. She had a rough go through her teenage years, but for the last few years, she was coming into her own, building houses with my father. When she was 16, she met a boy. He was a few years older than herself, but when we saw them together for the first time, my parents and I knew that she was done, that she had found the one that she was going to be with for the rest of her life. She was becoming a beautful and compassionate young woman and we were starting to get to know one another more. The best day of my life was on August 3, 2013 when I was my sister's maid of honour at her wedding to her long term beau. Then...a short 19 days later, my little sister was killed in a head on collision. She was only 21 years old. The other driver was 17 and was texting and driving. She got away with it with no reprocussions. Meanwhile, I have lost my gift from god, and I am so incredibly sad. I am trying to come to terms with the foreverness of the situation....that I will never see her smile in person again, and I will never hear her laugh, and I will never feel her arm around me again as I did on her wedding day when she hugged me for the photos. My heart is broken and although I have been having a lot of good days, today I feel broken and unable to cope. I am sitting at work fighting back the tears and wondering why....why her? Why did god have to take back his gift so soon? Why was she not able to live a long and happy life? I know I will never get the answers to my questions, and even if I did, it would not bring her back. I just feel so broken today.

Comment by nadia on October 3, 2012 at 1:30am

Some many moments I am like I have to call her and let her know about sg that happen in my day when it sticks me that I cannot do this... I have kept her phone and look at her Skype account... I cannot believe she is not here with me... sometimes I think it may be hard for people to understand my pain... having a family of my own DOES NOT MEAN I CAN MOVE ON... She is my family the person I few up with and knows me better than anyone else... so sorry we are all here.... hugs

Comment by Yetzy L. Diaz on October 2, 2012 at 10:37pm

I know what you feel Nadia.  Sometimes I pick up the phone to say oh I need to tell my sister the news, then i fall back into reality and realize she is gone.

Comment by nadia on October 2, 2012 at 9:50pm

hello back.. I am back here lurking just wanted to offer a hug to all... I miss my sister every day ... I still more than 15 months now cannot comprehend why she is not here... finding hard to have a life without her at most of times.. I know the feeling you are describing the pain is still here and will never go away... I though I share with you that there are times i feel she is looking after me and is sending me signs... too many odd things happening but most of all I had a baby girl that was due right on her birthday and ended up getting born a week after on easter sundays she was a week overdue.. I named her after my little sister... she is my gift from my wonderful sister to keep me going as I was so ready to pack it in...I am still in agony I cannot share this with her as I know she always wanted a baby girl .. My sister was the greatest auntie and would have loved my little girl.. I feel it is not coincidence.. we were talking about it then next day she was gone and now I have a baby...there are moments of some rays of happiness but the waves of pain always come back.  I miss her so much... she was my besets friend... to my mind I still think maybe she is on long holiday and always get shocked when I realized I can no longer call her...I et flashbacks all the time... I want her back desperately... You know the feelings .....

Just wanted to say hey, I'm new. I just lost my little sister 18 days ago within 24 hours. We still don't even know why, it was blood clots like doctors had never seen in a 15 year old. I'm so angry and confused. I can hardly even read this stuff in this group but I need ideas on how to grieve because I feel myself bottling it up. I don't want to go to the cemetery, I don't want to think or talk about it. It's like I don't believe it. I'm also 12 weeks pregnant, I see I'm not alone with this situation. I had joined these mommy/pregnancy forums and see everyone so excited, happy, and bubbly preparing for their babies. I am just not in that state of mind right now, not anymore.

Traumatic loss of an only child

I started this group so that people who have lost their only child or the only child that remained, as in my case, could come together because I believe people that did have a child or children who now have none have special issues.
