Thank you everyone, so very much. Today was my first full day without Calvin. A few times I didn’t think it was real that he was gone. Then it hit me again and I felt a dense grief and physical sickness that I’m sure you all know as well. I had someone today think I was silly for caring so much, and my wife and I just hugged for a long time and cried (again). I think it’s impossible for people to understand unless they feel the love of and for a pet like we all have, so I don’t blame those people, I just feel sad they have not felt the love like I had for/from Calvin.
Yana, David, Mia, Jennifer, and Sp, thank you for listening, understanding, and sharing. I’m very sorry for all of your losses as well. I hope each of you find some peace. We loved our pets and they all loved us.
I did not think when I came here it would really help, but this forum has helped me so much. It will get better, I know that. You are all helping.
