lost my sister 2 weeks ago

I just lost my sister Karen 2 weeks ago. She took an overdose of pills. She had been grieving the last 6 months for her husband who lost his 3 year battle with pancreatic cancer. They had been married 32 years and had been inseparable. Her grief was just too much, she couldn’t live without him. I am her sister and we were very close only 21 months apart. She was my life long best friend. I can not believe I’m here on a suicide website. I can’t believe she is gone. Any words of encouragement welcome

  1. Remember it is not your fault. Losing your best friend is terrible and your mourning never heals. It does get easier to deal with it, that’s how I get through my days. I love you. You can get through this.

    1. Thank you Ashley. Now on my third week since she passed and it’s only getting worse. But I’ll keep trying.

    2. You might want to go to counseling or go a to a survivors of suicide group.
      It’s ok to ask for help.
      No one understands like those of us that are going through this or a trained professional.

  2. I lost my sister on May 27th. She was 7 years older than me and 60 years old. She hung herself. I feel what you are going through Debbie. Reach out to any other family and friends that you have. They may not understand what you are feeling but you need to be able to have a safe place to talk and vent. I am going to counseling and I recommend that too. I lost my husband June 19th 2016 to a serious illness. I feel the grief that your sister went through and how she saw no way out but to be with her husband. I have felt that way especially recently with my sisters suicide and my mother dying on June 7 of colon cancer. I need his strength to carry on and without it some days can be agony. It’s not your fault that your sister ended your life but you do need to really talk to a professional.
