Since the loss of my furbaby Peanut, less than 2 wks ago, I have every muscle in my body aching and when I walk I feel like my body is so heavy. Has anyone else felt like this?

No but grief can affect your body in different ways I’m sure. I don’t normally get headaches but lately I am.

Gmr, Yes I know. My body was a mess too, I remember. It does happen, that grief and shock have impact on the body.
I look on those things as our "loving wounds", and don't be afraid of them because they are likely to gradually pass in time.
My right arm got paralysed and my hand the day my girl passed. It was an acute inflammation in the nerve. I still feel a little numbness and tingling in 2 fingers but the use has come back after some time now.
My back ached terribly and I got painful sciatica around that time too I recall.

I send you kind thoughts and blessings for you and your little one.
Hold the love like a little light. It is all you have, or will ever have, to find your way home.

Dear GMR
I, so sorry to hear about peanut. Grief can affect us in ways I never knew about until I lost my beautiful mare last year. What I had was an ongoing lump in my throat. It actually felt like I had something stuck there. It went on for months and months. Then one day when I was totally absorbed in gardening, I noticed it wasn’t there and the minute I thought of my pony it came back. Once I realised it was grief, I felt better about it and now, over a year later, it is rarely there. It comes back though when I get the triggers and feel sad. So in answer to your question, yes definitely. We can feel physical pain because of grief and I absolutely love what Mistymama says about referring to them as loving wounds....

Hugs to you

Yes. Every minute of every day since I lost my 14 year old kitty on June 26. He was with me for 14 years, exactly half of my life. The past 5 months without him have been physically painful. A throbbing lump in my throat, a thousand cold knives in my chest, it takes everything I have in me to not collapse on the floor sometimes. I admit, when I do collapse, I stay there and let the feelings take over. I hear noises I've never heard before coming out.

Webster was a surprise Christmas Kitty from my parents when I was 14. I suggested to my husband that we adopt a kitty together for Christmas this year. In my mind, I have so much pent of love-turned-sadness, maybe a new little fur ball will help me release some of that. We are going to start visiting different shelters in our area. The idea makes me feel a little better on one hand, but on the other, the idea of bringing a new kitty into my heart feels like a disservice to my boy.

Although I know there is nothing anyone can say to alleviate the pain, I am sending you love and light during a time that is very dark. I hope the thought is what counts.
