I am so sorry you aren’t feeling well. It sounds like you are dealing with a lot lately. I have lost some beloved pets. I always have such a connection with my pets, They provide unconditional love and companionship. It is almost like or worse than loosing a family member because they are so dependent on us. Maybe you will consider getting another when you are ready. Grief takes time to heal but I want you to know there is hope just allow yourself some time. Depression can make us feel tired and ill. Just yesterday I said to my husband, I think I need to go to the doctor because I feel so lousy. I went for a walk and came home exhausted. Being winter, does not help. It is hard for me to tell if I have something else wrong or if it’s my depression but depression is an illness so either way I am not in a good place right now. Reaching out for help is hard for me to do also but you are not alone. I personally struggle with depression and anxiety even on meds. But there are always better days for me. Sorry for my rambling, I just want you to know you are not alone and there is hope. Trying to talk to an understanding person can help. Take care and say to yourself, “it Is ok to feel this way because of everything going on in my life, but I am going to be ok”.

Thank you. Yes the loss just worsens everything. Fortunately i have other pets at home. So i have a few to keep me occupied. My "first" cat, i got in college, is turning 16, or 80 in human years soon. Its just been very frustrating not being able to begin my life. I just turned 34, am disabled, physically unwell a lot, and have these physical illness, looming. Not figuring things out, and a good possibility of a serious surgery that may help or not. I feel trapped and constantly a failure. Its just been a long run, and ive lost a lot. I saw my gyno today, shes pregnant. I thought i got over kids along time ago, but it subconsciously creeps in. I dont know how to make the best of things that just dont work.

Thank you
