Loss of an older brother too soon

I lost my older brother on 1-18-13. He passed away due to an unusual heart condition at the age of 23. He was not just my brother but he was one of my closest friends. He still lived at home so I saw him almost every day and he spent a lot of time with me and my son. I don't know how to feel a lot of the time. I was jyst spending time with him the night right before it happened. I had to call 911 while my mom preformed cpr on him because he was ble to make it to her to tell her something was wrong and his heart stopped while she was listening to it. Everything about this eats me up inside and everyday i try to keep it down and not feel but it just comes back and it hurts so much worse. I wish i knew what do or how to feel. I thought talking to people i could relate to may help. I have an older sister also but she lives about an hour away and it is really hard to relate to her because i feel like she doesn't exactly understand how i feel and it frustrates me because i need her but i hardly see ir heart from her.

I am so very sorry about the loss of your dear brother. It is so tough to deal with such a trauma, particularly when you are a young person. My brother was killed in a car wreck when I was 14. It was terrible, and my entire family suffered severely. This is what I have found, though--talking about it does help in time. You don't need to bottle things up, you need to get them out. If there is no one to talk to, then try writing your feelings down. Are you still in school? If so, have you tried talking to a counselor about all of this? What about your mom? Have you two talked? Your sister is probably suffering as much as you--after all, he is her brother, too. So, try setting up a time with her to just talk, or just tell her how you are feeling. You can count on us to be here for you--we will listen and be supportive. --ModKonnie
