    Shouldn't I be crying? Not sure how to process.

    What was your relationship with your brother? Were you close? Even semi close?

    When I got the news of my brother's suicide it had no real affect on me at all as we had no relationship to speak of. I acknowledged the unfortunate circumstances and went about my day having suffered no loss.

    Suicide is dreadful no matter what. But as zoos points out if you had no relationship with him you may feel you have suffered no loss.

    But if you did you may start to feel it in time.

    Sorry for your news.

    I've experienced suicide in my family too.

    It raises so many questions.

    So sorry to hear this, and I hope you'll all be ok.

    Oh man! I am so sorry. Family relationships can be any thing from warm and fuzzy to non-existent. Blood is thicker than water though and it is bound to give you a shock and emotional turmoil.

    I agree with others here though, you couldn't be in a better place.
