I'm a 16 year old girl, living in Bolivia (for ten years already), but born in Belgium, and I don't know what else to say.
About my Loss:
I lost my 14 year old brother a year ago (February 6 2010) due to a freak accident. My house in Bolivia was located next to a mountain, a huge boulder rolled down and fell on my house, room (we shared a room), and bed (a bed with two floors, I slept on upstairs, he on bottom). And I somehow made it out alive, but my brother died. I was hurt, of course. I had pretty severe brain damage (a concussion, blood clots (2) and swelling) and I broke my chin and leg.
We were incredibly close. We were close in age, and thus spent all our time together. We had Tae Kwon Do classes together (I haven't been back since he died), we went to sleep at the same time, played with barbies, plush dolls, cars, made tree houses... And I miss him more than anything in the world. And I need help. I need to talk about it.

"Avi, I don't know if we can rethink our emotions that way. Our emotions are what they are, although reason can help us form our emotions and hopefully change them for the better. I don't know if my mom can hear me or not. I certainly…"

If you have lost a loved one to alcohol, substance abuse or suicide please share your story or feelings here. Share the love and beauty of the one you lost. Losing someone any of these ways is not natural and can be hard to understand and ask why? I lost my Mother to an overdose 9 years ago. She also suffered from major depression. Her doctor got her hooked on pain medication and she was addicted most of my life. These doctors who were suppose to help her ended up killing her in the end. I also…See More
