Three Years and Counting.....

My brother died in Afghanistan just over three years ago. He was the backbone of our family and we are not the same without him, nor will we ever be.
I still have all this anger inside that I have not dealt with. I'm not even sure who I am angry with. He died doing exactly what he loved to do.
All I know is that I am angry and a day does not go by that I don't vent about his death.
He was a great guy and we all miss him very much.

Three Year and Counting......
by: Doreen UK

I am so sorry for your loss of your brother 3yrs. ago. This is the terrible sadness of War. A family somehow lives in fear of losing a loved one in battle. When it happens it destroys the family unit and leaves one angry and confused for some time.
You could benefit from seeing a good grief counsellor who is skilled to help you work out your anger and confusion over your brother's death. You may be stuck in grief. I is difficult to have angry feelings and not have a place to put them. I have been in counselling so know it works so well if you get the right counsellor. You should be able to move forward from the anger and pain in time with good support. If you leave things the way they are you are likely to miss out on living a more functional life. It is possible to recover from grief but this does take time.
