A coping question

Thank you again for the prayers and kind thoughts. Can anyone recommend a book or website for dealing with the immense sadness that I cannot get past? I lost my grandfather and was very sad at that time, but this just doesn't compare. I don't want to take anything (prescription wise), but my brain just cannot move. It feels paralyzed in grief and I can't believe my brother's been gone for 11 days. I hate that I make others feel uncomfortable, especially my daughter, my parents and my brother's fiance. This week one month ago we were all in Disney World together for our annual family vacation together. My parents, my brother and his fiance, and my immediate family, it was wonderful and I'm soooo glad I ordered the photopass cd. He collapsed a week after we returned. It just seems like I get sadder every day. I saw my brother almost everyday and now...this just takes my breath away. All day long. Thank you in advance for any recommendations.

My heart aches for you. This is a great site IMHO http://www.journeyofhearts.org/

Try not to be hard on yourself. Everything you are feeling is absolutely normal. I am no Dr. or specialist, but have lost many close to me, and have had to go through the process. Not a pleasant one, and I so wish you did not have to.

God bless

My heart goes out to you and the immense loss you have had. It's been 13 years since I lost my brother (rather quickly over a four day period) and there is not a day that goes by that I don't think of him in some way. I can only tell you that for the most part, things get easier but I do still have those moments of sadness. They are just not as deep. You obviously had some wonderful times with your brother. Those are the times to remember. There are all kinds of sayings people say to try to make you feel better but in the end, you are the one that will work through your pain and sadness. Some people take longer than others. Everyone has to find their own way. Just know that you will find your way and create a new "normal" for yourself.

Like others who have posted, I, too, am so very sorry for your loss. I am not sure about DIS rules and I don't want to overstep any boundaries, but counseling is another tool that helps in the grieving process. And you don't have to take medication, either. Praying God brings you peace.
