My life was so focused on Nico's illnesses. To loose him when I finally received medications and a diagnosis was devastating. Almost two months later, I still miss him, can't sleep more than a few hours at a time and have lost a source of income. I don't have the energy to look for other employment and have not followed up with offers for jobs. Watching anyone on tv discuss losing a person or animal makes my teary all over again. Nothing really helps. I look at his picture or don't look at his paw print memorial - nothing matters. I still miss him. Someone even gave me their dog! She is small like Nico, so not having a coat for cold Chicago winters, I put one if his on her. For a couple of days I was able to look at her in Nico's coat. I finally was able to go into a pet store to buy her a coat. It was hard going to a store without Nico as I would take him in any store I could. I am not sure what to do. I don't want to do anything

I am so sorry for your loss. It is very hard to lose a much loved fur baby. I lost mine just one month ago at the age of 3. He was a healthy full of life little boy and the inattention of a semi driver killed him! I miss my little boy every day.

There is not a lot we can do to ease our pain except to let time go by and to take the time to grieve.

It really is hard to do every day things without them. It’s going to take time. Been a few months for me. I was crying every single day. It has stopped. But I have been busy with a family matter that has taken my mind off the loss. Yes it still hurts. I talk to her every day, her box of ashes. Lol. I say good morning and good night, I love you and miss you, I tear up every single time.

I'm worried about your loss of income...if you still have insurance call a therapist and schedule an appointment. Whether it be online, Skype, telephone call ASAP. You maybe severely depressed and need medications to help you function until this crisis is resolved. I lost my job for other reasons had to sell my home and live with relatives. It took me 3 years to get a job and I had no money...except for some small savings...

So sorry. I had my dog for 18 years. She was the love of my life. She passed away in September. I still miss her so much. My heart felt heavy the past few days. It is devastating without them.
