Today marked 1 month since my brother's death. It has been a horrible day. I found a grief support group but they don't meet again until 2/14. I found another group and went today..traffic in this area is really bad and I had another appointment in that area so I sat in the car and read a book for 2 hours..I went in at 6 for the meeting at 630pm....638pm, no one there..this was a huge church. A gentleman finally tried to help me and could not get any answers as the what had happened. I had just spoken to the receptionist around 4pm to find out what entrance to come in etc and she confirmed I had the right place, right time, right entrance. I just started balling my eyes out. A memeber of the church could tell I needed someone and started talking to me and prayed with me. He said he was going to have someone call me and follow up. I really don't care to hear from them. Everywhere I have turned I feel like I get slapped down except for the one group that does not meet again until 2/14 and DS. Thank you DS for always being here. When my brother first died I tried to find support groups in my area and everywhere I called said, oh we don't do that anymore or that person has not worked here in 5 years..what's up with this? You think so many people think they can do it on their own that there just isn't enough interest?
