I’m having trouble because the losses are continuing!

I’m having such a hard time right now. 2020 has been a horrible year and not just because of the COVID crisis.

I lost my stepdad in January due to neglect.  My brother took his own life while going through a horrible divorce. I tried so hard to help him but it was just too much for him to bear.

I lost my sister to breast cancer 10 weeks after my brother died. I have lost all my siblings and now I must make the decision as to whether my mom (she’s 86) can live alone anymore.

I don’t know how much more heartache I can take! I talk to a therapist once a week, otherwise I don’t know if I’d get through these past nine months.

I wish I could take my mom out more (she loves to go shopping) but I am too afraid due to her age and the possibility of her contracting COVID.
Thank you so much for letting me get this off my chest! I feel like I’ve cried on my loved one’s shoulders too many times! Sometimes even telling my story to complete strangers can help me make it through another day. Thank you again!

  1. So sorry to hear all of this! It’s crazy how so many heartaches can happen at once. I lost my brother to suicide when lots of other heartaches happened too. Work through your pain and hang on to your loved ones. Much love and strength to you! 😔❤

    1. Sorry for your loss praying for I loss my brother n sister as well I feel just like you, my mom is 69 n I’m not sure what to do either. Reading this really helps me feel better praying for both of us 🙏🏽📖😘

  2. My husband left me two months after my brother shot himself the head, ending his life. He was in the middle of a terrible divorce, and after he died, his ex wife decided that I couldn’t see their children, my nephews. This all occurred about a year after my last miscarriage and the onset of a chronic illness. So, yes, I understand loss. I don’t understand why so many of us suffer so much loss, but not having my big brother around anymore has made it all so much worse. You are not alone in your suffering. Know that a lot of us have been really unlucky in this life for no apparent reason. I am just so sorry and so sad for the both of us.
