does it get easier

It's been a few weeks since my brother OD'd on prescription drugs and my heart is too heavy to carry around. A grieving brothers pain is too much to bare. The fact that he didn't know happiness in life and his death was untimely breaks my heart. it hurts to know that he didn't enjoy life and I carry around grief guilt and pain. I don't know how to properly express my grief but its almost as though I can never look at the world and be happy again. It hurts. It hurts so much. I love you Mike. Rest easy brother. You deserve it

Loss of a Brother
by: Debby

I am also so sorry for you're loss. My Older brother died of an overdose Oct. 1999, 28 days after my younger brother was crushed to death in a printing press at work. Both of my parents have passed away since than also. I can tell you, some days are good days, and some are bad. The pain will always be there, otherwise We would not remember them. Stay strong, and carry on as best you can. I imagine that is what you're Brother would want you to do! Good luck wishing you all the best.

I am so sorry for your loss. My son Od'd on perscrition as well.He left behind a older brother. As a mom and trying to help with my sons greif over losing his brother all I can tell you is that it takes time. You will never accept this - you will just adjust. My son passed away Jan 2011 and we are still grieving hard - as a brother you are missing that special link that only brothers can share - all can say is that somehow the mind takes over and adjust - good days bad days - we keep trudging through because we have no choice. Your brother is in heaven now and he is your angel . Cling to the thought that you will see him again someday. God Bless.
