My heart goes out to you in this tragic loss of your soul mate, Rocco. To lose your best friend in such a heartbreaking and shocking way sounds so incredicbly difficult. I appreciate your strength in writing it out here – its so fresh in your heart and mind – but there is so much love and sweet little smooches. It’s no surprise that the grief that follows such a loss of a fluffy best friend has such prfound impact on you – give yourself time to grieve – You don’t have to “be over” anything. Grief can come in ebbs and flows and it is best to be prepared for good days and bad days. Animals have such a unqiue relationship to humans, but it hurts just as much – if not more – when they leave us. Your husband’s mistake sounds truly painful for you.
Griefline has a couple of resources for when we lose our best friends – it may seem inconsequential, but these little things can have a big impact on us in this really hard time:
How has your home been since this accident? How has your sleep and eating been? Taking care of yourself is a great place tos tart but often the hardest.
I witness your pain and encourage you to call Griefline on 1300 845 745 between 6am – midnight AEST if you want to talk about this more.
Keep writing – we are here xxxx
