"Thank you so much Nicky, that is a perfect way to put it, "you lose you past and your future". You hit the nail on the head. I appreciate your reaching and may take you up on reaching out when I need to. Thank you for…"
I'm so sorry for your loss. It is, I am sure, very raw as it is very early days still. When I lost my sister, I read somewhere that when you lose a sibling, you lose your past and your future. Your sibling is the one that knew…"
"I lost my only brother, my only sibling,4/14/23. I am the sole survivor of my family of origin. Our father passed away in 2010 and our mother passed away in 2020 (non-covid related), I am grateful that my brother was able to help me grieve those…"
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.

Late February is a challenging time of year for me. Jen’s birthday is the 23rd and serves as an annual reminder of all of the potential that was lost…Her’s (mainly), mine, the world’s honestly. This year she would be 52…It is increasingly hard to imagine, through all of the iterations possible, what she could have become, what was to be her (significant) impact on the world.That being said, things, emotions, have largely settled down since I committed a potential version of what could have…See More
"I'm so sorry to hear that - that must have been such a shock and definitely not fair. Yes, I find it's hard to go on without them. The best thing I've come up with is try to live the rest of my life for them - honoring them and their…"
