I am so so sorry Abigail! (((((Hugs))))) I am so glad you found this website so you have many people who you can talk to...
Talking can be a helpful release. Following the death of all ten of his children, as well as some other personal tragedies, the ancient patriarch Job said: “My soul certainly feels a loathing toward my life. I will give vent to [Hebrew, “loose”] my concern about myself. I will speak in the bitterness of my soul!” (Job 1:2,18, 19;10:1) Job could no longer restrain his concern. He needed to let it loose; he had to “speak.” Similarly, the English dramatist Shakespeare wrote in Macbeth: “Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak whispers the o’er-fraught heart and bids it break.”
So talking about your feelings to “a true companion” who will listen patiently and sympathetically can bring a measure of relief. (Proverbs 17:17) Putting experiences and feelings into words often makes it easier to understand them and to deal with them. And if the listener is another bereaved person who has effectively dealt with his or her own loss, you may be able to glean some practical suggestions on how you can cope. When her child died, one mother explained why it helped to talk to another woman who had faced a similar loss: “To know that somebody else had gone through the same thing, had come out whole from it, and that she was still surviving and finding some sort of order in her life again was very strengthening to me.”
Come talk anytime you want...

August 23, 2017 i lost my brother to an accidental overdose. He lived with me for over a year and a half and was in recovery for at least 3 years. When he passed it took my breath away and we were uncertain as to why he passed. We were only 3 years apart and our bond was unusually strong for brother and sister. I am having a very difficult time coping with the entire situation. Especially since finding on 11/14/17 the actual cause of death was an accidental overdose. I told my father but I…See More
