I agree completely... You don't ever get over, but you find a way to put a bandaid over the hole and you put one foot in front of the other... Everyone here has been through the loss you are feeling... That is why we seek each other out. I do hope you'll continue to come here and release some of your feelings. I think you need it. I'm glad that your doctor has been able to help you... It seems like you are in a good frame of mind... Just remember... Each journey begins with the first step!

Patti, I hope the doctor has been able to help you in your grief. Each of us deals with our grief and there is no time limit on how long we can and will grieve. Two months is not a long time for grieving your loss of Sadie. Losing our beloved pets is no different than losing a beloved person...grief is still grief. Do not keep your sadness to yourself. Blog about it or come here and write about it as you are doing. You should not be feeling isolated and alone. I don't think our hearts ever heal completely from losing our pets. We just have to go on with our lives the best we can...one day at a time.
Just know that we are here for you...

~Mary McLeod Bethune

"If you planted hope in a heart today in any hopeless heart, If someone's burden was lighter because you did your part, If you caused a laugh that chased a tear away, If tonight your name is mentioned when someone kneels to pray, Then your day was well spent.

Don't keep your sadness to yourself here. We understand. People who don't have pets can never fully understand our love for them. I don't think we ever "get over" our loss. I think we learn how to cope better in time. Our memories won't be as painful as they are for a period of however long it takes when we lose our furry friends. Your doctor can help you with something to help yo deal with your grief..not take it away, but help ease it for you. As you know, my heart goes out to you.

It seems like people think it's unusual for me to still be hurting so much. That makes me feel so isolated and alone.

I don't think my heart will ever heal completely from the lost of the friend who loved me unconditionally. My heart hasn't healed completely from losing my beloved yellow lab Daisy either.

So I will keep my sadness to myself, so I won't bring others down.

Pattie, I think it is a good idea too for you to see your doctor to see if she can give you anything to help you deal with the loss of precious Sadie. I continue to pray for your heart to heal and to not have regrets and blame yourself.

Hugs my friend

I feel so badly for you and can feel your grief and anger. I think you're wise to see your Dr. and see what can be done to help you deal with your loss. Keep us posted as to what she says. You are also in my prayers. emoticon

I can't believe it's been two months since Sadie died. The anger still eats at me every day that this might have been different if she had been properly diagnosed.

I'm seeing my doctor tomorrow to see if she can help me deal with the anger/bitterness that I'm feeling. It's been so hard for me to get past this. I miss her so much.

Thank you for listening.
