Last Wednesday, June 29th, my oldest Sister collapsed and died of a massive intra-cranial bleed. She was my inspiration and greatest supporter. Today, Monday, I've realized that I'm not doing as well as I thought I would be. If anyone would feel up to sending positive thoughts, prayers, etc., I would be ever grateful. I thought that I could handle this on my own; I had no intention of bumming Our National Holiday, but the bottom line is my heart is breaking to the point that I feel physicially ill. I have nowhere else to turn to for positive reinforcement. I apoligize for the inconvenience but I would like to thank each and all of you for allowing me to reach out in my time of grief. John

Sounds like a really great sister.
This is sad news indeed. I've got a wonderful older sister too and am not looking forward to
the parting this life brings.

Positive vibes coming your way bro.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss John. I do know your pain. 14 years ago I came home to find my wife had passed away from the same thing, and it was devastating to say the least.
Yes, it was very hard for quite a long time to get pass the grief that was so consuming,but I found if I really focused on the great times I was able to spend with her, it made the pain of my loss more bearable with each day.
I wish you the best, and send love and positive energy your way.
This too,shall pass.

Sorry for your loss man. Embrace the grief. Don't be afraid to cry. Seek help if you need it, even professional help if you have the means. It'll never be the same, but the pain will lessen in time. Good thoughts to you.

John (MR69,)

Sincerest condolences to you at the passing of your sister. I have an older sister, too, and since our mother died, our relationship has grown deeper than it already was. I know how tough of a loss this must be for you.

I want to encourage you to not buy into the BS about men being strong and stoic and not expressing emotions. God created us as emotional beings. Male or female, we all experience feelings of joy, anger, sadness, grief, etc. It's when you hold those feelings back, especially sadness and grief, that we feel our worst. You have to process your grief in a way only YOU can process it. There is no right way or wrong way. If you're worried about appearing weak in front of male friends for crying, then go cry in private, and EFF them if they don't have sympathy or empathy. It is OK to cry. It's OK to be angry at God, if that's what you feel. Express yourself, and don't hold back.

Grief is always harder to deal with when it's fresh, but it will ease up with time. Meanwhile, if you are physically ill from all of this, I'd advise seeing the doctor and let him help you with it. I had to seek help from a medical doctor as well as a psychotherapist after my mother died, because my grief was manifesting itself in angry outbursts towards people I love. If you see that happening, head it off at the pass.

Hang in there, my friend. It WILL get better with time. Peace to you.

OMG John, I am SO sorry for your loss. Love and comforting vibes on the way. Of course, your heart is breaking...we are here for you. In the short time I've known you, I've come to know you as a brother. Please take care and know that a sister is with you. You don't have to do this alone.

All my best Bro........We Love You here. I have a sister who is only 54 and is dying from cancer.........she's already been told that it's terminal. We're quite close...........she's only two years younger than me. I know that when she goes I'll be crying my damn eyes out.........but I can't imagine yet how you must feel. -Rob

Hello sweet family, thank you all from the bottom of my heart for you outpouring of love and strength. I've read these posts every day now for a week, and I still get a feeling of overwhelming sincerity and serenity reading them that is sustaining me through each day. I know that the positive outpouring of love and prayers is the only reason I'm doing as well as I am. "With the help of God and true friends" has never had such a deep meaning for me...you are all "true family". Thank you all again. I am truly blessed to me a guy among such great, great people. John

Very sorry for your loss! I know what you are going through as I lost my brother suddenly 15 years ago. Nothing I can tell you but to hang in there. I know right now it feels like life ain't worth living but the pain will slowly heal with the passage of time.
