Lost both parents

Hello everyone.  I am new to this group and I'm glad I found it because I am hoping that it will help me get through my grieving process.  I am very distraught because in February of this year I saw my daddy battle and die of cancer and in June, 4 months after he was gone, my mom decided to join him in Heaven.  My world is shattered and I dont know how to cope with this grief.  I was very close to both of my parents and I saw them everyday and now I have nowhere to go and no one to talk to.  My heart went with them when they left and the world is now so dark and gloomy to me.  I need to talk to others that are going through the same thing that I am going through because no one else understands.

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 losses, I am really struggling as to how I grieve his loss without him. I am “only” 52 and to think of the rest of my life without anyone left who remembers me as a baby, or the stories we shared with and without our parents, to not have one of the 3 left if I need to talk, need help, or guidance or just to share joy with anymore. Not many people truly understand where I am coming from, because most people my age still may have both parents, or 1 parent, all of their siblings or some of their siblings. There’s just some solace even as a 52 year old woman to know there was one person on the planet that knew my back-story and would always have my back no matter what, in a way only a parent or sibling can. Sometimes when I think about the gravity of this loss, the pain and loneliness take my breath away. Most of the information I can find on-line is geared to elderly people who have lost their last sibling. I haven’t been able to find much coping info on mid-lifers or younger who find themselves as the “last ‘man’ standing” of their family of origin, so to speak. I hope more people will join that I can connect with, no one really understands what this is like.
Thank you,

Erin

Recently lost my dad unexpectedly July 4th  then watched my mom take her last breath July 7th....I think I'm lost....or numb....or just sobbing as I feel a pain I've never experienced before.

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
