It's been just over a year since my cousin Jackie killed herself. I spent last thanksgiving with her family. My uncle, aunt and cousin (her step-dad, mother and older sister). It was the first holiday with out her and my first holiday with out my uncle from my mom's side. Now it's been a year and thanksgiving is comming around again. I've been near tears constantly and usually I'm not much of a cryer. I don't want to hear any of the normal "count your blessings" stuff that gets passed around at this time of year. I miss Jackie real bad. I know I'll probably spend the next week or two in tears. And again at Christmas. And this will probably continue for years at these holidays. Some how the impending holiday seems to open the wound even more then the anniversary of her death did. Does anyone have any advice to ease the pain, even a little? I'm pretty desperate here.
