Is this an anniversary reaction of some kind?

I have a really weird, out there thought -- which, coming from me, is very out of character...

I think that sometimes our loved ones that have died are around and we can "feel" them - especially through animals. And when we are thinking about them a lot, for whatever reason, we are more apt to sense their presence. (Yes, I suppose it could be argued the other way around.) Perhaps the dog and your dad are tied together somehow today? I don't know.

A few months ago my son was home alone late at night. He started to get nervous and sat himself down in the chair in his room and put our cat on his lap. He said as he sat there, he smelled his grandpa, who died last year, and he felt safe and comforted. The chair he was sitting in was his grandpa's, so it is explainable. And yet --

Anyway - that is the "vibe" I get from what you wrote. Don't tell your therapist, he'll ban you from Babble.

I hope today gets better. Being responsible for family is just darn hard.
