I'm so sorry you're hurting. It's okay to cry your pillow soggy. You loved your pet so much, that there is no other reaction possible.

It hurts SO bad, and you are not a nuisance, pain, inconvenience, wimp, loser (or any other bad thing) because you want to talk to someone about it. When my sister-in-law's dog died, I had 5 voicemails on my phone, in one afternoon. They ranged from sobbing to a brave voice, to a tearful voice, to another brave voice, to a sad voice. She's not crazy, and neither are you. You are human and you've formed a very close attachment to this pet who has given you so much love.

grief hurts- it's the dark side of love. The bright side of love is what will linger in your memories, though- when you get a little bit of distance, you will be able to feel love again- and remember all the times that your pet did something silly that made you laugh or something surprising that touched your heart. don't worry-- the worst grief in the world cannot pollute the bright side of love. You will always have the warm feelings about your pet, even if you can't access them right now.


You can call your T's voice mail and tell her that you need to talk to her when she's available on Monday. It will be okay- she'll understand, that's her job.

If you need to talk to someone today, is there a friend that you know? or another loved one? Someone you can reach out to?

We're here when you need to share-
take extra good care bent (((((more warm hugs)))))
