Other siblings

Is it normal to dislike your other children (16 &5) when your older daughter dies?

You poor love. I don’t know if this is quite the same but when my husband left me, which was 6 months before my brother died, with 3 children under 8 to raise, I couldn’t stand any more hurt and I built a wall around me to protect myself from more hurt. I had to keep them at arms length because I couldn’t risk any more hurt. It wasn’t until I remarried 5 years later that I realised how I’d stopped myself from loving them the way I wanted to. I hope that makes sense. x

I think that is some of it, but Megan was beautiful, healthy considerate, hard working…everything you could want in a daughter. But my 16 is the complete opposite and I just want scream at her to be more like her Megs (her older sister, who I lost). It never annoyed me before, because I had Megs, but now I feel like I don’t even want to talk to her. I know she is in pain as well, I just don’t know how to deal with the pain.
