My younger sister died almost a year ago and I get sadder as the anniversary approaches. Last week, her husband sent us all a tee shirt with a photo of her on it and it took my breath away. How do you deal with the aftershocks of grief?
That is a tough one Molly. Time can heal your original grief, but then you come across a song that you used to listen to together or a picture and it hits you all over again. Just take a deep breath and do something that would make your sister proud.
My mother died more than a decade ago, but what she went through as a result of her illness remains vivid in our memory especially when her death anniversary approaches. Time can indeed abate our pain, but every now and then we’re struck by the fact that she is no longer with us.
Maybe getting together with other family members on that day will help you get through the pain of the anniversary. That way, you aren’t alone with your grief and you can all reminisce about good times you had with her.
