K.D. Posted January 18, 2020 Report Share Posted January 18, 2020 Well, it’s been almost a year since I had to let my best friend go. I would like to say I’ve had a healthy grieving experience, but I’m pretty sure I have not. I think I managed to compartmentalize the pain and shove it deep down inside. I have not been able to put up his bed or toys yet. I see them every day and feel a low level sadness. Occasionally I really truly truly remember and I get a stab of fear and lots of pain. He was my third rescue dog. After the first two died, one in 2001 and one in 2009, I was able to get a new friend within three months. This time, I have not, almost a year later. The pain is too bad still. So, I just keep getting up each day and waiting for time to blur the memories and smear the edges to where I don’t feel like utter crap anymore. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
