Hi everyone,
I hope you're all holding up out there. I've got a question I'm not sure who else I can ask. My bestie died just over 4 months ago and I'm still incredibly sad but it's a different kind of sadness from the first brutal few weeks (hang in there everyone dealing with that fresh pain-it will ease a little).
Anyway, I've always been pretty anxious in general but it has been just unbearable lately. It's just clicked that it may be because I no longer have my constant distraction/cuddle source near by.
Does anyone else have experience with this? Any advice? I've been entertaining the thought of finding a new pal but I'm still a bit too sad I think.

Any fellow anxiety sufferers out there?

All the best to each and everyone one of you x

I'm still in the early days (my dog died 12 days ago), but I think your theory about why you're feeling anxious is valid.  For me, my dog's absence has left a few gaps that could increase my anxiety:  1) I don't have something to pet; 2) my daily routine has changed; 3) I get less exercise; and 4) I work more.  I'm already thinking about getting another dog although I'm not sure I'm ready emotionally.

Thanks for replying Poisonivy. You've made a good point about the change in routine, exercise etc. I certainly am exercising less and working more. I should work on that.
I'm sorry to hear you've lost your dog so recently. Those first few weeks are horrible. I babysat a dog recently and found it took my mind off things a bit. Borrow someone's dog for a day and see how you feel. It got me thinking it could be time.

Thanks again.
