"But still hurts and not having him the way we used to want and is not easy. Learning this new way of life is not easy. Today is first day I actually got out of bed in am hours in over 2 months since I lost him. "

Yes, it's harder at night. Feel lonelier and more desperate. I'm afraid of my life now. I know there will always be a hole that can't be filled but I can't imagine any part of me feeling good or happy ever again. Certainly this is overly pessimistic but that's where I am right now. Logically I know it will get better.

So sorry.  It's quite a road we are on. I chose to connect with a therapist right away. This is all too much for me to tackle by myself.  She is helping

me navigate this storm of emotions. Friends are great but they have not experienced this kind of loss.  Only someone who has been there can really relate.

The local animal shelters are looking to place their animals in foster homes to make room for their increased demand and/or be ready if they have to shut down. Tomorrow  I meet three dogs to see if one of them will be right for me to foster.  I haven't been  able to focus on anything in such a long time - not even my favorite hobbies.  I figure a dog won't let me get away with that.  And since fostering is temporary, this is a good way to see if a dog would be good for me long term.

If you want to compare notes occasionally that would be great
