[QUOTE=Dannie55;5094039]Hi, I'm Dannie55...in April '11 I was taking care of my youngest brother (50). He was dying from cirrhosis . This was especially sad because of his 10 yr old son.
On the morning of 4/19/11 my brother stopped responding...hospice said it was time...time to call the rest of my family...so I did. On his way there, my husband was killed in a head on crash. My brother passed 8 hrs later....needless to say, I don't remember much of the next few days after that.
Just like all of you...he was my life, heart & soul...married 29 years, 4 kids, 7 grands.....
I got to experience the " knowing someone is dying" and the " sudden death" of a loved one....both suck, no matter. I am being treated for PTSD now. I know I'm not the same person anymore....how could I be. I am here because I'm looking for others who know how I feel...everyone is so nice to me but they still don't understand....I just need to know I'm not alone....[/QUOTE]

Your not alone Dannie,

Although I didn't loose my loved ones in the same manner, I too am feeling alone. I lost My father 10/2010, My Mother 10/2011, and my beloved sister 11/2/2012. After my father passed, my sister was diagnosed with stage 3 pancreatic cancer, which was inoperable. I was with her every single day and night of her treatment. So hard!!

I also am being treated for PTSD, deep depression, and anxiety. So I do understand how you are feeling. The holidays are especially hard. I'm also here to not feel so alone. My sister was only 53, and was my best friend. We spoke every day. I still have the urge to pick up the phone to call her, then I start crying.

I can't even imagine how you got through you tragic loss. I'm so sorry, is all anyone can say. But as we all know, no matter what anyone says, there is no comfort. I'm glad your here. It just helps to have someone to talk to.
Peace be with you,
