Adjusting to this loneliness I’m feeling is really hard. I miss my boy so much and wish I could see his beautiful face again. It’s difficult to want to do anything right now even though I know I should keep putting one foot in front of the other. I see my family starting to carry on with their lives but I’m finding that a challenge. It’s only day 5 since he’s been gone and he’s all I think about. I was able to do a few things yesterday but today the loneliness is overwhelming.

hi goldenmom,

i understand what you are going through.  My boy was my constant companion as well. He was my support system as I dont have many friends and im not close with family. I still struggle with finding any energy to maintain old routines, much less find motivation to care for the basic things.  Even on days that I can get out and do some food shopping or errands, I feel in a daze and lost without my boy at my side.
Its hard to not judge ourselves so harshly, to compare ourselves to others process.  What i have learned in my solitude is that grief has no timetable and no instructions. All we can do is be there for ourselves in the most loving and compassionate way possible and that may mean retreating to heal. 

Be gentle with yourself and go at your own pace.
Sending you lightness and comfort.

Thank you so much Mossimo’s mom. Your kind words brought tears to my eyes. The pain of loss can be so overwhelming and adjusting to life without our cherished pets and support system so difficult. I also experience the dazed feeling you mentioned, almost like I’m disconnected from everything around me. I am trying to be gentle with myself and give myself the time I need to work through my grief. I have to remind myself I’m on my own timetable and not anyone else’s and that’s okay. To grieve means I love and I will always love my boy very much. I am so thankful for your support and please know I am here for you too. Wishing you comfort.

  I know your pain. I just lost my (18) year old Border Collie yesterday. Her name was Shelby and was the love of my life. It's perfectly fine to grieve, cry and make your feelings known to the world. Personally, I can't stop crying. The pain is unbearable but you have to deal with it. Keep posting your thoughts and wonderful memories of your beloved. We're all here to support you. God Bless and take it one day at a time.

Jim, I’m so very sorry for your loss. Your Shelby must have been a very special dog. It is one of the most difficult things we go through to lose our precious companions. I hope your 18 years of wonderful memories will help ease your pain over time. Thank you for sharing your support with me. It is so comforting to know I’m not alone in feeling deep grief over the loss of my dog. I hope you continue to share how you are doing. Sending you comfort and peace.
