Brett you said it perfectly and you actually helped me also God bless you and your little dog and everyone of us here it’s always nice to know that we still keep in touch after almost 5 years

Day by day. Minute by minute. Find something, anything that makes you happy and focus on it. For me it's my dog. When she is gone I will focus on something else. It could be anything.

If that doesn't work, do it for your mom. Carry on for her.

I am feeling like I can't catch my breath, the sadness and tear flow the last 72 hours seems like I am entering a tunnel I can't find my way out of, I'm drowning.  I can't sleep without waking in a puddle of sweat and tears.  I miss everything about my mom!  It feels so lonely when she was the only person I would talk to several times a day, feels like she was the only person who loved me and now I have nothing.  Sadness, tears and an emptiness with no light is so scary.  What are the baby steps for this? How does someone pull through?

Yes it’s almost five and I’m still so very sad

Brett, I am looking for the same light at the end of the tunnel.  I feel the same way about my dog he is a Labrador and its so so difficult to see him limp or have a bad day, he takes meds, I just want him to be comfortable.  I say to myself how am I going to handle this time in my life without my mom.  I am a nervous wreck, but I am trying to lean on my faith in God, always.

Brenda, I rely on my faith so much, but I realized a long time ago that there won't be a magic moment where an angel comes down and tells me that everything will be okay. I'm not criticizing God. I just realize that this is something that I am going to have to experience and live through. There is going to be pain in life. Losing my mom, one of her dogs, and knowing that the day is coming for this little bundle of fur is sickening intense pain. I still love God. I still pray every day, but I realize that this is something that have to experience. That is one of the hard things about grief. When we lose the person we love the most we hope for help. It didn't come from my family and friends, so I leaned on God. I don't have to tell anyone that it can be frightening and disheartening to pray and not find relief, but we keep praying and hoping. We keep taking baby steps. Not another day is promised to us. It will be over some day, but I am always looking for a light at the end of the tunnel. Always hoping that I will be happy again. It's when we stop hoping and trying that it becomes too late. Keep going. Keep taking baby steps.

I'm having a lot of trouble getting Krissy to eat. She has diabetes and she has a very limited diet as it is. She can only eat prescription dog food. I switched to the wet version and she was eating up, and now it's the same as before. My vet is monitoring her weight and when she loses a certain amount he wants to put her down. Eating is everything, and I can't give insulin or her thyroid medicine if she will not eat. I have literally begged her to eat. She won't open her mouth. It's heart breaking.

Brett yes as horrible as it is for us both our dogs have aged almost 5 years since our moms died I’m having a really hard time with it I’m thinking that I might need counseling my boy is going to be 13 he still gets around but I know he’s on borrowed time

Welcome Kimberly, I am glad you found us!  So many have and continue to be on the same journey as yourself.  Reach out at anytime.  I am fairly new myself and this place has become a light for me. I feel understood, accepted, and heard, which provides me hope everyday, especially my darkest and saddest.  Your picture of your mom, she is beautiful!! Blessings.

My Story

When I was twelve my mother was murdered then my beloved sweet grandmother died when I was 18. My maternal grandfather died when I was 22. My maternal grandmother died when I was 33 and my final living parent/grandparent died when I was 35.  I lived with a lot of loss most of it came at a sudden clip.  I'm left with incredible feeling of loneliness even though I've been married for 20+ years and have two wonderful children.  It's tough to share my true feelings with my wife because it's so hard…See More

My Story

When I was twelve years old, my mother was brutally murdered during a robbery of our home.  I came within minutes of finding her body but by sheer chance I didn't.  It has been over 35 years since that day but it still effects my life today.  As a child, I went through the trial of the man convicted of killing my beautiful mother then as a man I went through his parole process finally his death from illness in prison. See More
