    Hi Fergie,

    I am so glad you reached out to share your story. My grief snuck up on me when I was approaching the age that my dad died, almost 30 years on. I became incredibly anxious and at the time I did not realise what was happening to me. What helped me was speaking with someone outside of my family and support network to share my experience. Another thing that helped was writing an open letter to my dad. In the letter I thanked him for all the memories, for being there when I needed him, for teaching me how to be who I am and I added to letter when I felt like I needed to process my emotions or an experience. Please know we are here for you if you need to talk.

    Take care

    Dear @Jemi, I am so sorry all this has happened to you and causing you such pain. I hear how broken you are, but I also hear how incredibly courageous you are and it sounds like you are doing all you can to get through this. I am glad that you have some loving supports around you, just know that we are here if you need someone outside those closest to you to talk with.

    I am so very sorry to hear about Arlo.
    I wish I could say something to provide you with some comfort at this time. I lost my dog Rupert at a young age, he was only 3 and I was devastated. He loved me unconditionally and always seemed to know what I needed. There were times when I was too sad to even talk about it. What helped me in those moments was writing down how I felt in a journal I was keeping at the time, which allowed me to release some of my sadness. I had many funny stories about Rupert that I shared with others to honour his memory.

    Please know we are here for you if you would like to talk or share any memories about Arlo.

    Take care
