Reconciling With a Loved One After Loss

My friend Janet once told me that parents raise their children to be independent and, therefore, they won’t get along all the time. I always thought of this in the years that my mom and I lived under one roof following my divorce in 2011.I had a house in my hometown in Illinois and we had moved her there the previous year when…See More

Long Winter Gives Way to Bright Spring

Spring is coming. While it might not seem like it with all snow and rain in many states this winter, everything will begin sprouting green soon because of all that moisture. Usually we all look forward to spring because that means summer and warmth is coming. It means everyone will be outside. But when we are grieving, it’s just…See More

Thoughts About a Future Cut Short and Finding Balance

Posted on February 21, 2014 at 12:00pm 1 Comment

Something about grief throws us off balance. While we think we can predict how we will react after times of loss, we don’t really know until it happens. And sometimes we aren’t aware that our reactions are causing us act in certain ways.…

Posted on January 17, 2014 at 11:30am 2 Comments

I never doubted that my parents’ grief for my sister’s death 20 years ago was different from mine. However, it wasn’t until I began to speaking about grief and loss, specifically about suicide loss, that I began to really see…

I wonder if you might be able to help me.  I just got home from talking to a young man after our Survivors of Suicide group meeting, and he is struggling from the loss of his brother, his only sibling.  Do you know of any resources espcially for a sibling survivor who has lost his one and only sib?

I first want to wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. I have lost my younger brother a nephew and a son to suicide and all are the hardest things to deal with. I have also lost a son to accidental drowning he was 5 and was in a coma for 3 years. When my son who took his own life lay in the hospital I prayed that God would let him live brain dead and all just like my first child just so he could still be here with me, it was not meant to be and he died 2 days later. I feel like a shell just going through the motions. I don't know what to do anymore.

Michelle I read your blog about your move. When people die it changes your life. and I can see you want to live life. I suppose sibling death is different than child death by far. I can't say i will ever throw anything of his away wish i had more from him. wish i could go back and relive those years. Life will never be the same for me. It is a very sad journey. I am not very far along and it will be two years spring. nor will i ever be. too much regret. I will channel it somehow and spring ahead some how. for my other kids ...
