    I lost a brother to suicide when I was a child and held strong until 6 months after and then broke down. History has repeated itself and I am at the 6 month mark after losing my other brother to suicide. I feel so alone with 2 siblings leaving me behind to pick up so many pieces.

    Thank you for the replies. I had a much better day today than yesterday which was a break down. I am now having trouble sleeping and cranky but hanging in there.

    No, i have not had any grief therapy. My brother was seeing a shrink once in a while and I was thinking of making an appointment with him so he could help me understand my brother's situation better and how he felt about those he left behind. After a patient is deceased, can a doctor talk freely?

    how you doing?
    I'm not sure about the docs telling you about your brother...I think they would be a bit gaurded about what they say..worth a try though..
    I feel that maybe some counceling for yourself might be of help..
    joining a 'real life' support group to talk to others who have been through the same as you could help also..
    it's helped me..
