Stanley, you've been through so much. Seeing your loved one die, and almost dying yourself. I spoke to a grief counselor that specializes in PTSD, and he said that families facing sudden death is very similar to PTSD. Our minds are racing and we feel anxious because we can't comprehend what had just happened. I'm so glad that the pain of your trauma is easing a little. I pray that mine will too.

"Every day for me is the same day she passed. Not a joyful or even an ok moment. I spend a little time with the children and grands and do my best to hide my emotions, but they all know how I am inside, even the youngest grand at age 4…"
"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.
