Sibling Loss

This group is for anyone that has lost a brother or sister. Sibling loss is often minimized and people don't realize how devastating losing a sibling can be. I lost my older sister and my life will never be the same. She was my only sibling, I looked up to her, I went to her for everything. I lost my past, present and future. It is traumatic.

My sister and brother-in-law have been gone since march and my mind cant wrap around the fact that it will be 9 months tomorrow it just all still seems impossible. She was my best friend we talked several times a day and saw each other several times a week. I am so totally depressed. I still find myself crying and since they died so tragically I cant watch anything on tv when it has fire on it. All of her kids will be in town for Christmas and I just don't know how I am going to deal with it I can fake a smile here and there at work or home but it will be so hard for everyone to get together and they not be there. I just want the holidays over. How is everyone dealing with this I would have thought it would have been somewhat easier 9 months out but it is still so raw ........ I am literally traumatized every single night I go to bed and shut my eyes just waiting and waiting on the sleeping pill to kick in.

It has only been a month since I lost my sister and it feels like 20 years since we last spoke. I don't know how I keep going with this? I miss her so much? I feel like my life with her is fading. I need her back so badly. This is unbearable. Oh my god I miss her!!

An assumption is an unexamined belief: what is thought to be true without ever really realizing that we think in that way. For better or worse, understanding starts with entertaining the idea that something is true.  Truly profound thoughts generally come to light from the relaxation of these (flawed) assumptions.  This is where I find myself today...Perhaps, one of the more significant drivers to pushing down the loss and grief at the time of the accident, ignoring it and mindlessly walking…See More
