NelsonsMom- I had to respond to this post because it brought back memories of the last few months with my little dachshund boy.
Brandon also fell out of bed one night, and it was horrible. He was not hurt, but I screamed and was so upset that I could not get back to sleep. After that I insisted he be allowed to sleep between my husband and myself even though my husband did not like that arrangement. It would not be forever, I told him, and of course I was right. A few months later Brandon died. It does still bother me that I had him sleeping like that, so that he fell off the bed. But he had slept that way for 15 years without incident. You are still in deep grief for your Nelson. Other people may be advising you to think about the good times, and that will come, but probably not yet, Now you are still traumatized by this devastating loss and must give yourself time to work through it. One month is not very long, although when you are in sorry it seems like forever, I don't think it's a good idea to try to repress your feelings of grief. I used to worry that I was becoming obsessed with grieving over Brandon, but I think I needed to cry enough. Two months after his death I find that I am doing better, Many of us in this forum are in various stages of exactly what you are going through. I hope you will find peace and comfort here. - Dacshsiemom
