Loss of Sister

Recommended Posts

I lost my only sibling (my younger sister) 5 months ago. She was my best friend, confidante, supporter, and we lived together. We were as close as sisters can be. She was only 55 years old, and she died suddenly on her birthday from a brain aneurysm. I lost my Mom 10 years ago, and my Dad 2 years ago. So, I now live by myself in the house that we once all shared as a family. I consider myself an orphan. I cannot even describe the pain, and depression that I am feeling. I scream and cry every day. I miss her so much every minute!

I cannot imagine how lost and alone you must feel, my dear. Some of us are fortunate enough to have a sister with whom we are very close ~ I am one of them, and I know how much my sister means to me ~ and my heart just hurts for you in the magnitude of such a loss. I am so sorry.

Please know that you have found your way to a most caring and compassionate place, and we will be here with you as long as you want us to be.

I am so sorry for your loss, that she died on her birthday just seems all the harder.  I lost a sister this year and very nearly lost my closest sister as well and I know it's a matter of time and I'll be going through this again...to have only one sibling and lose them when your parents are already gone must be very hard, like you're all alone in the world.  Did she have any children?  I'm sorry for your feelings of aloneness.  I'm glad you're able to vocalize your feelings, it helps to get it out if nothing else.

Thank You for your kind words, and I am so very sorry for your loss. My sister did not have any children, and neither do I. All of my cousins live out of state, so it's really hard. I just feel like no one understands or can relate, and it seems as though everyone wants you to hurry up, and "Get Over It". It's not a cold. I'm glad I found this web site. I feel comfortable talking with people here.

Thank you MartyT. I will check out the articles that you suggested. I already feel comfortable on this web site. No one else seems to understand.

This has been my go to place for over 13 years, when I lost my husband, as no one else seemed to get how I was feeling, I was 52 and didn't know other widows at the time.  Now I know lots of them and have a lot of friends that understand how I feel, but it was very different when I was grappling to deal with my fresh grief.  

A grief counselor can be of help too.

As well as a grief support group.

I highly recommend coming to a forum like this to read and post...it's a great supplement as you can come here any time day or night and it helps to know you're not alone in what you're going through.
