Its coming up to 3 years since my older brother died. Still seems like a bad dream. I cant talk to him about tv programmes and day to day stuff. I cried every day for 2 years. Now it is just under the surface

Hi SueMa, I know how you feel. I lost my brother in February 2022 at the age of 74. I am the younger one, 71 now. We always had a good relationship. - It is as you said, not many have a good relation with their sibling. Many siblings do not get on at all.
We were lucky, but now, we suffer. - Nick
Yes, the price you pay. He was 65. We became closer after mum died four years prior and closer still when he was diagnosed with cancer and died 5 months later. I moved in to care for him. Your bereavement is very recent. Must have been a big shock and not easy
