I lost my sister at the end of January this year, and I am still struggling with the loss. We were incredibly close, we even worked for the same company. I was the one to find her at home and had to break the news to our mum as well as all our colleagues at work. In short, everyone loved her and I find myself still helping everyone else deal with their grief but I have no one to talk to about it because the only other person I could talk to (my husband) died in April, so I had a double whammy of devastation. Now I don’t really know how to feel. I still work in the same building my sister worked in for 19 years and after work I get to come home to the house where my husband passed away. I just feel so lost. I know grief is an incredibly personal thing but how do people cope? I always thought I was strong enough to weather any storm but I guess I can’t do this alone…
