Jennipher, sorry for your loss. A brother is an anchor in our lives. I lost my only brother ( he was 25) to suicide when I was 14, that was almost 39 years ago. I grew up with sisters and still have them today, but it's not the same as a male sibling. I would not be visiting this forum but we lost our son 9 weeks ago to suicide. He was 28.
My advice to you is to live your life as best you can, as if he is with you at all times, honor him as best you can. I always told myself that he left this world a little bit earlier than planned, and that makes his memory special. It's tough, ok, ok it's HELL , mourn all you need to, but go on in life because you have to. Did your brother expect to make his death your burden or was it to lighten his? Peace

Thank you everyone. My family and I went to the cemetery on his birthday with 48 balloons. We each wrote a message on a balloon and sent them to heaven for him. I was able to make it through the day only breaking down twice. It sounds crazy but I believe he was with me and helped me through. I know the one year will be so hard. It's coming up in May. I'm just thankful for this site and going to therapy. I'm glad I can come here to write about him and share with you all.
