Lost both brothers to suicide

It has been 9 years since I lost my oldest brother, and 2 years since I lost my 2nd brother. I am the only one left…and I never reached out to get help until this month. I am really struggling with sleep, if I sleep 3 hours a night that is a good night. My anxiety is on another level. I cry everyday and I have no excuse for why I never reached out for help. I am not sure what I was thinking
I just started looking into support groups for help and advice on an appropriate grieving process because I am clearly struggling. Any helpful comments will be much appreciated!

    Hi. So so sorry for your losses and the pain you are going through. I lost my only brother just over a year ago to suicide. It’s amazing how we can shove dealing with such a devastating circumstance aside but it’s agonizing knowing what to do. We also have the pressure to go on with life; to provide for yourselves. Responsibilities and bills don’t stop when dealing with tragedy. I know that reaching out for support and help has kept me sane. I see you are doing that and that is the first step to healing. And you are only human so you need help and kindness along your greiving process. You should be proud of yourself for taking this step! I’m praying you find amazing support as you search for it. Much love to you!

    Hey you. I am a girl of 20 years old and my brother committed suicide this night four weeks ago. It breaks my heart to see my parents in such deep pain and I have a lot of stress and anxiety too, especially at night. You should really search for help. I think support groups are good but you should try professional help to. I am going to seek professional help too. It is very important I think to find some inner peace again. I have so many questions and they all remain unanswered and that makes me nervous all the time. I know what you are going through and having to deal with it twice must be even worse. But you will learn to find your peace again. I hope I will too. And if you can’t fall asleep, I put on the TV at night, which helps me a lot. I hope you will feel okay.
