lost a fellow marine - September 2nd 2019, 11:00 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of death or grieving, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

It all happened so fast, we was running side by sidethen boom.The ground rose underneath us and sent him flying through the air. I saw him land as I hit the ground, I knew he was dead I just didn't want to believe that he was gone. I ran to his body and grabbed the pull handle on his plate carrier and pulled his body to cover. He was my friend and my brother in the corps. I wish I could have said how much I loved him.

Hello and welcome to teenhelp, thank you so much for joining and also sharing this with us.

I am so sorry for you're loss and hope that you will be okay soon. When we have lost someone, we will feel all kinds of different things and it is totally fine to do this. By reading what you posted, you we're very close to this person. If you are angry or upset or whatever you are feeling, just take it one day at a time
and again I am so sorry for you're loss.

Would you be able to talk to someone about this and let them know how you are feeling and doing with this? Sometimes when we have lost someone, it is good to talk about it and you can remember the good times that you both had together. Would you be able to talk to you're family or friends or talking to a therapist about this and see how it goes?

Also another thing that you can do, is you can write a letter and put everything in it that you are feeling. If you start to cry or get upset or you get angry, that is totally fine. What you are doing is getting all of the hurt and different things that you are feeling inside of you and getting them out, so that you do not hurt as much. Then when you are doing writing this, you can rip the paper into pieces and throw it away. Then try and do something to get you're mind off of this for a while or to help pick you up some. For example, going for a walk or putting on music or funny TV shows or movies or reading or drawing or writing or calling a friend or family member or finding something else that you enjoy doing.

You can try to Google grief support groups when you are up to this and you can go and talk with other people who have been through this also. They would be able to talk with you too. Sometimes when we are talking about this with other people who been through it, it feels a little bit better because they get this and how we feel. I hope that you will be okay soon.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It must've been really traumatic for you to witness your friend get killed. It makes sense that in that moment, you would've known he was dead and yet didn't want to believe it. It was a huge shock for you, one that you wouldn't want to believe was actually real.

He was your friend and brother in the corps and I'm sure you shared many good and bad times together that made you feel close. We often regret the things we never said, but I also like to think that given how close you were, chances are, he knew you loved him dearly.

Hope we can help you through this difficult time
