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!!
