Profile Information

About Me:
I am the oldest child of divorced parents. I am married with 4 step children 1 cold and 5 grand children.
About my Loss:
My younger brother had cirrhosis and he did on August 7, 3017. He developed ARDS as a result of a blood transfusion while in the hospital. After 20 days on a vent in ICU we removed the vent and he lasted 3 hours before he suconbed to death. That was the hardest thing I have ever done...watching my brother struggle to breath and I couldn't help him. I felt so heartbroken, guilty, and relieved st the same time. His body was depleted and I knew there was no hope but I knew his wishes to not be on life support so I honored him by telling him I would watch over his daughters whom he was estranged, take care of his dog, and help him transition to heaven with grace and dignity. I am still not sleeping and I still feel guilty. I miss my brother so much. I am a total mess.

"Theresa, I finally came to the realization that what I was doing wasn't working for me. And I realized that taking an anti-depressant couldn't be any worse than crying all of the time, not sleeping, and destroying myself with guilt and…"

Life without them

It's been 2 years and 2 months since I lost my dad, and 1 year and 3 months since u lost my grandmother. Sometimes I feel like they were never here, like this is normal life without them. Then I have moments when I want to curl up in a ball and just cry because it hurts so much to miss them. I try to remember the good moments but all I can think about is the last days.The other day I was at the hospital with a friend and when we walked in I saw my dad, like I was shook this older women was…See More

"Well it probably did help me but I gained about 20 pounds and I hardly eat anything because of my IBS so I don’t know what happened"
