    I just lost my brother to suicide 2 weeks ago. I don't know what to do, my heart is shattered. I am just trying to find anyone/anywhere to help me. How do you start healing?
    Thank you,

    Hi Robin,

    I'm so sorry for your loss. :(

    I'm not sure but I think counselling would be the best way to go.Please don't try and deal with this alone. There is help out there, good luck!

    I'm so sorry for your loss, I can't even imagine how you must be feeling. :( I agree with Daisychain, counselling / therapy would be the best option.
    You really need to let out your thoughts in person instead of keeping them locked inside.

    I am so sorry to hear about your loss, i cant imagine how it would to feel to loose my brother. I have lost one person by unnatural causes (My 3 yr old cousin) and i must say you cannot go through this by yourself it just gets worse if you do. Just let your emotions out and talk to someone.

    Thank you all for your conerns ans sympathies. I have found a SOS group and though it is very informal, it seems like a good starting point. I also do have a councilor with whom I will be meeting with next. I have had a bad few day, I think the shock is wearing off and now I just feel numb and sad. I just don't know what to do, my heart hurts so much.

    I am very sorry for the loss of your brother. Sometime I don't understand why people suicide.Suicide is not the solution of your problems. Face the problems like a man. Don't worry and don't be depressed time is healing. Everything will be fine after sometime.
    Take care of yourself.
