Sharna, thank you for reaching out and sharing your story. As you mentioned, absolutely this is somewhere you can write about your brother, what you experienced, and also how you are going.
Have you found any of the resources specifically helpful for you or speaking to any of the volunteers?
Grief can be so complex and we can be surprised in the different ways in which it affects us at different moments so having the courage to reach out and share your experience is commendable and I am proud of you. It was hard for me to discuss my grief journey for awhile.
Is there a particular way in which you ‘numb yourself out’ that maybe you would like to discuss in terms of protecting yourself?
We are all here to assist and discuss any aspect of this with you or just listen to your thoughts about anything you would like.
Take care Sharna and look after your self
Please do call the helpful volunteers if you do feel like having a conversation
