Can’t accept my sister is gone

    My sister passed away 2 wks ago. She had been fighting cancer for 11 yrs. I was with her for the last 6 weeks of her life. I was glad to be there for her but it was so painful to watch
    her deteriorate. I feel like I have PTSD. I had just lost my younger sister just 1.5 yrs ago.
    My younger sister was only 52 when she passed and my older was just 61. Even though I’m married to a supportive spouse
    I feel alone. My mother is still alive which I am so thankful for. I just can’t seem to accept
    that all my siblings are gone. It scares me that I can longer see them, call them, ask for their
    advice. I have no ambition to move on with my life.
    My heart is shattered. Is anyone in the same
    position?

    So sorry for the loss of both of your sisters. I know how hard it is to accept and move on. I lost my older sister 1.5 years ago - we lived together and she was my best friend. It is still very hard for me to adjust to life without her but am getting stronger - some days are worse than others. I try to remember all the good times we shared and know that she will be forever in my heart. I don't think anyone stops grieving for a loss of a loved one but somehow manages to move on although it is very difficult. I wish you the best and know that your sisters will always be with you and that they would want the best for you.

    So sorry Dani I lost my best friends my sister's in 11 months of each other it's been 5 years my soul, spirit and life are broken. I can't get past this. I feel you. We did everything together the last 16 year's. There is such a thing as a broken heart mine actually aches from hurt and grief. I'm so sorry for your losses as I feel it deeply.....
