> Bent, you wouldn't think twice about calling your therapist if a close human family member died, would you?
> I've had companion animals who were closer to me than most of my family members. And I think studies have shown that to be true of many pet owners.
I totally feel the same. No human can love you like a animal can. Makes it so hard when they are gone because the one 'guy' who would lick my tears is gone while I'm so upset.

> Putting a beloved friend to sleep is a traumatic decision, even if you're mentally prepared and even if you know it was the best thing for the animal.
Yes, I know I made the right decision for him. There were offers of surgery but with low survival rates. I couldnt take seeing him that way. I knew what he wanted - not to suffer.

> I wish I could give you a real shoulder to cry on, and a real arm to put around you. Is there anyone who would understand and provide physical comfort?
My fiance is ok. He hugs me and stuff but i dont think he understands the entire connection/the emotional connection i had to our pet. Its like he needed his 3 hours to grieve and I am just starting to not hurt so bad on day 3. My parents have invited me to dinner...i know my mom thinks i need a distraction. Thats ok. I dont have an emotional connection with my parents at all but I can visit for a few hours.

Do you take Ativan? I may have you confused with someone else??
