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.

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.

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.
