I’m a 41 year old Twinless Twin (a person whose twin has died). I started journalling after Janet died and have found that writing is a real outlet for me. This blog is an extension of that. In the UK they are known as “lone twins” and my middle name is “Rose” so that is where the title of this blog comes from.
This blog also came about from a need to tell our story. Thank you for reading.

  1. I’m really sorry for your loss. I understand that losing anyone can be heart wrenching but there is something about the shared connection between twins that seems to make it that much more pronounced. My dad, who was a twin, died suddenly this spring and you could see the affect it had on my uncle, so my heart goes out to you.

  2. So sorry for your loss. When I read your blog title, I wondered if you had lost your twin…yeah, I’m a little slow sometimes. It is beautiful that you can write about it and share what you’ve learned. I’m sure you will help others through your story. I look forward to following your journey.

  3. I look forward to reading more about you! Two of my best friends are twins, I’ve know them for over 40 years, and I can’t imagine how one of them would feel if they lost their twin.

  4. As a twin, I deeply feel your loss. A twin friend of mine just lost her other half to cancer, and she is lost. I will recommend this blog and the organization you mention to her. I can’t imagine life without my twin. God bless you and heal you!

  5. Although I have lost loved ones, I cannot imagine how you must feel having lost a twin. I am so sorry, and hope that the pain does not last for ever and that your memories will start to become happy ones of her.

  6. I’m so sorry for your loss. I have twin sister 11 years my junior, and have grown up seeing the amazing subconscious/intuitive connection twins are said to have. I remember once I was babysitting one of them as she was sick. Suddenly, she wakes up, looks me straight in the eye and says: “we have to go pick her up at school, she’s sick”. I laughed. “No silly. You’re sick. You’re the one who’s at home”. I kid you not, 5 minutes later, the school called me to pick up my other sister as she had vomited all over the classroom floor. I look forward to reading your posts 🙂
