RavensLove, I didn't talk to a grief counselor but I would have if I had known of one. I certainly think you should consider talking to someone in that area if that is an option for you. When you log in to this site, there is also information regarding one-on-one grief support. I will say that at 2 weeks, there is a lot more grieving to come. What concerns me is that you are not leaving the house and you are barely eating. Are you alone? Do you have anyone to talk to? Yes, crying is normal and, although the amount of crying diminishes, it continues for a long time for most of us. Being sad is normal but most of us are forced to proceed on with life in some kind of way. We have all struggled from this great loss but I sense from your post that you are even concerned about yourself. I sincerely encourage you to talk to a grief counselor if possible. If you can't do that, please talk to someone from this site (see Home page). My heart goes out to you. I know it feels so devastating. Please come to this site and talk to us here as well. People here understand the pain and the sadness. I'll be praying for you, RavensLove.
I want you to know that my next black kitty will be named Raven. That is such a beautiful name. You inspired me. I am so sad for your loss. I just know in my heart that our pets would not want us to be devastated like this. Remember how they always tried to make us happy and cheer us up when we are down? Well, your Raven's spirit is still with you and wants you to be o.k. Try to focus on all the love you had. There are grief counselors that specialize in pet loss. We have a support group in our area through the emergency pet hospital that I've heard is very good. Check with your vet because they would know. Remember, Raven loves you and wants you to be happy and healthy. Let us know how you are doing. Thinking of you a lot and sending love for a gentle mourning period.
I really understand you! I lost my Wads and my life has changed! I am angry, so sad, I cry everyday, but it starting to get a little better, I lost my angel boy in October and so I can tell you I am still dealing with a lot of feelings. I can tell you that it is starting to ease ever so slightly. I guess only time can help us learn to heal. I know, to me, it was the loss of a child! Time and the support from others. I feel your grief and my heart and hand reaches to you. I read these posts and cry, but I know I am not alone in my feelings.
