How to stay on track while dealing with a loss?
Saturday, January 14, 2012
On Thurs a friend of mine had a massive heart attack and died at the age of 52. Last night our cat developed breathing problems and collapsed. we rushed her to the Emergency animal hospital where we were told she had fluid building up in her belly and around her heart. The Vet said she suspected an aggressive cancer was to blame. Our only options were to bring her home and have her die painfully or have her euthanized so she wouldn't be in any more pain. We didn't want her to suffer so at 8:41 pm last night our Baby 'Tooth took her last breath. I am so overwhelmed with grief from these two back to back losses. I forced myself to eat a few bites of breakfast but the thought of even eating again makes me feel nauseated. I tried doing some walking but my legs started to give out on me. I don't know what to do... I feel lost. I don't want this to derail my efforts but I don't know how to deal with this, I am totally overwhelmed and mentally exhausted. Any suggestions on how to get through this without derailing all my hard work?
