Sibling Loss / Small world
« on: December 10, 2009, 10:33:35 AM »
I went in to talk to a counselor at my college today. When I walked in and wrote my name down on the sign in sheet the receptionist had a kind of surprised look on her face. I just shrugged it off.
When the counselor called me in she told me that the receptionist was my brother's mentor last year (for a freshman seminar class) and did Ride the Rockies this summer. My brother was working for a family doing the Ride the Rockies when he was in a car accident.
It kind of shocked me yet made me feel a bit more comfortable in the counseling office. I had never gone before but I figured I should try it out to see if it would help (which it did a bit).

Sibling Loss / Loss + College
« on: December 08, 2009, 12:30:57 PM »
I lost my brother, Ben, earlier this year in a car accident. This is my first semester at college, the same college he was going to, and I seemed fine at first. Thanksgiving hit really hard as the first major holiday without him and now I'm having major troubles focusing. These past two weeks have been terrible and I have two finals starting on Saturday, but I just can't seem to sit down and focus on one thing for over five minutes. I think the thought of going out of state to see the rest of my family for Christmas is also bringing me down (mostly because Ben was always the talk of the family, always the one with all the stories). I've found that drawing little joke comics of those stories has helped me a bit (http://eatcrayons.smackjeeves.com/) but recently it doesn't seem to be enough and I don't know what else to do to  :-\
