losing the best brother on earth

by missy

on 12/02/2000 the best brother and friend committed suicide. it is now 12 years, but the pain is still there. losing someone so close to you at such a young tender age of 29, how can u go on with life, how can you say all is normal.... i lived in a dream world, thinking that he is around and that I will meet him somewhere in the mall, or on the beach etc. he went through a rough married life, kids and wife moved out and my mum and dad were his pillar of strength, he was mocked by my elder brother and his wife, sworn at by my younger brother's wife, and today I feel so lost without him. he was cremated on Valentines day and that day died with him.......I miss him so damn much...........

considering suicide today
by: lee

I lost my sister just 2 days ago. Pain is overwhelming. I got up this morning with decision to just end my life. Your words made me consider that I would be leaving my other family members more grief.

thanks for your comforting words, so sorry about your loss, 3years, that is really so sad, my niece was also 3years and 8 months when she passed away from lukemia. I also feel as if I have lived my life if looking at these young ones that have passed away. we say god knows best, but losing someone that has not even experienced life yet, is so traumatic. take care

Hi, your post touched my heart, the pain you have been living with for so many years must be torture. I recently lost my 3 year old grandson and it's hell on earth. It sounds like your brother had a tough life and your parents (and you) were his strength, I wish I had words of comfort but, there really are no words. I'm sure your brother would want you to be happy and have a good life. I have told my family when I pass do not cry for me for I have lived 46 years longer than some people ever get the chance to. I want tears of joy and I'm sure your brother would want the same for you. Have you had counseling? or do you have someone to talk too? I'd be more than happy to listen to you even if I do not have answers, I will not judge. (((HUGS))))
