Had a rough few days😢

After doing really well for several wks now I feel so disappointed that I’ve started to unravel again, in the last 2 wks I’ve been really struggling with panic attacks and extreme anxiety and have stopped going out unless absolutely necessary, I ve been isolating myself again and my self esteem is at rock bottom, it all started when I had to have my beloved dog put to sleep which resulted in me becoming extremely depressed and before I knew it I was back where I started and feel helpless and unable to cope with everyday life, but I have an appointment to see a councillor on thurs so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that she will be able to help me to get back on track 😢

I am sorry for your loss. I know how you feel. I had a Lhasa apso for fifteen years. I remember when I woke up and found that she had died in her sleep. I remember crawling back in bed and crying like a baby. I had her the whole time I was agoraphobic. The good times I had with her. She brought so much joy and love to my life. It is heartbreaking that she is gone but I am glad to have had her in my life even though the pain was hard when she died. I would do it all over again, because those fifteen years will last a lifetime in my heart.

Thank you for your kind words of support I miss my staff Winnie everyday as there have been so many times that she gave me a reason to get up in morning, it broke me have to make the decision to have her put to sleep and have to watch the sparkle go from her eyes, it’s been a few wks now but I still feel as devastated as I did that day 😭😭😭

My dog would leave all her favorite toys in my bedroom. While I don’t have them in my room anymore I can’t bring myself to throw them out. She trusted me to watch them. She has been gone for eight years. I recently found the bag with her toys in it. All the pain came back. Then I noticed man she was spoiled. She had so many toys.

Hang in there, if you did it once you can do it again please just share your remedy

I’m so sorry for the loss of your beloved dog...I have 3, 2 of which are 15 and 13. I can totally empathize with you. That’s enough to send one into a depression. I think that’s situational and not uncommon. I recovered from a serious depression back in January and felt better than I’ve felt in years! I fell right back into a depression around the end of April and am continuing to recover now. If you can feel great after your last episode, you can do it again! I truly believe that! I too was highly disappointed, but that’s the nature of the beast! Take it easy with yourself and take baby steps in finding your way back to the sunlight. You’ve done it once, and you can do it again! As they say, “embrace your difficulties” as they produce growth, knowledge, and a testimony to be shared with those who are struggling. You got this!!

Thank you your support means so much, just got to except it will take time and work to get back to how I was feeling a few wks ago ❤️

You will soon have to get another dog. It can not replace the other one but it helps.
