My heart breaks for you...the terrible, terrible pain of losing a beloved friend sometimes feels overwhelming. I know it doesn't seem like it right now, but there really will come a day when your memories will bring you joy, and not just sadness. I wish I could tell you when that day is going to be, but that is one of those things that has no rules...it will happen when your heart is ready to let it happen.
When my cat Poubelle died, I was honestly stunned and just how AWFUL I felt. I could barely function, and was starting to think I wasn't "normal". It took finding this board all those years ago to realize that I was grieving, period. Makes no difference if you are grieving a person or an animal: when you lose someone you love, it just plain hurts. And when I lost Chaussette, this board is the first place I came to share my pain, to help me get through it.
Sharing my pain here with others who really do understand the depth of the loss of a beloved pet helped me immensely, and it is my hope that though they are only words, that in some small way, you can find some comfort in knowing that you are really not alone in this.
Take good care of you...it is easy to forget that when you are grieving.
Sending a hug,
Forever loved, forever missed.
