That comes from talking to reptiles! Lol!

There are venomous vipers that also constrict the life out of people as well as use "charm" ...

It was helpfull when confused or angry to imagine one while identifying what I was talking to; human or reptile ...

The comparison to animals is ridiculous! I just had someone today tell me her dog passed and she knows what I am going through. Sometimes you just have to shake your head. I also had someone compare my loss to her Great Grandmother... that she saw once a year. 

I think people are trying hard to relate? which maybe can be thoughtful but they should really get a quick course in when to shut the f*** up!

Well, I've read all the replies... I lost my husband in May, our cat died two weeks later in June and our dog died in July -- and then my best friend died in Dec.  all in the same year.  

Still in deep grief over the loss of my love of my life.  Worse thing anyone said, and people keep saying:  "Get over it. Be happy. Wouldn't he want you to be happy?"

I'm like, where is the "happy switch" that I can click on?.... And No, it's not "happy" to be a widow.... 

I do understand that losing pets is sad and hard, as it was sad and hard, as pets are family and I certainly loved all our pets  --  but you can go to a shelter and rescue a new dog or cat -- you can't go the shelter pick up a new husband or best friend.   Just saying --- 

That I should kill myself... it came from my moms mouth. I rebelled and married outside of my religion for love. My mom asks I told me that I deserved what happened. 

OMG, that is terrible -- you do not deserve that -- it is just just awful and a reflection on who she is (your mom) not you... 

What? Picked up teeth?  Not sure I even understand that... 

My mother-in-law said "losing a son is worse than losing a husband".  That said, her husband was an alcoholic abusive SOB, and I thought, but didn't say, "Well, that's because your husband was an asshole." While my husband was the love of my life,  a bit different there, I think. Plus, she hadn't visited/spoke to "her son" in years.. and I'm was with him daily...
