i lost my mother & brother
My mom passed away on 7/13/2008, 19 days later my brother was found dead. I'm having a very difficult time dealing with this. I wake up each morning thinking this is only a dream then i realize its a nightmare that i cannot wake up from. My mom had many medical issues so it wasn't totally unexpected. My brother's passing was so unexpected. Though he was so fragile I never expected this to happen. He was only in his early 40's. I truly believe he died of a brokern heart. He lived w/ my Mom his whole life. Does dying of a broken heart really exist? Everyone keeps telling me how strong I am. Its amazing how you let people see what you want them to see. I wish I was as strong as everyone thinks I am. Hopefully this forum will assist me with my grieving and healing.
