Re: Finding the loss of my sister hard
I am sorry for the loss of your sister. I also lost my sister. She passed away June 7, 2007. It was sudden. She died of septic shock. I didn't know that she had a minor procedure done in the Dr.'s office, and about 2 weeks later she ended up in the hospital with septic shock. (the procedure site got infected and spread throughout her body). I don't live in the same state as my sister did. I got the call telling me she was sick; I made arrangements to leave the next morning to see her, and 5 hours later I got another call telling me that she had passed.
It is still hard for me to come to terms that she is gone. I went to her funeral and saw her laying there, but it just doesn't seem real.
I have been through many deaths, and I know it gets easier with time, but that still doesn't help for now.
I have lost a son, grandparents, and an uncle. I know there is no time limit to grief, and there is no wrong feelings. So please give yourself time and space. If you need to write her a letter, and cry while you are writing it, go right ahead.
I have done that many times, and sometimes it does help.
