Sometimes it really doesnt get easier..

post #1 of 18

Today i was cleaning out my computer getting rid of files, and such no longer needed and of course i hit all my photos of my sweet Ares. and started bawling.

I really do miss him more than words can express, and somedays, it just doesnt feel like it gets any easier.

Grief is a funny thing...you don't just heal and feel better in a straight line. There are lots of bumps, and ups and downs along the way. Give little A a kiss for me...your little gift from your boy!

It's been 4 years since my B.C. went to the bridge and I still break down when I come across pictures, or I'm suddenly reminded of some thing that he always did.

I completely understand

I know exactly what you mean. It's been 4 years since I lost Petunia and today in the Fur Pictures, there was a cat with the same smoky and orange colors that made her so special.

Gryphon has been gone over 7 years, but I seldom manage to hold it together when I hear Garrison Keillor's "In and Out Song". That was our Gryphon to a T (except for the snow verse ) Lots of other things, too, but that's the one that leaps to mind. Yes, I understand.

Many hugs Feel better soon. Snuggle with your babies and let them console you.

Awww...That is sad.
I sure hope you feel better soon. Seeing pictures really hits the hard spot.
Today was the DAY for 6 years that my dad had committed suicide. And I didnt bring out any pictures, just for that reason. Because I am OK, untill I see pictures. In fact, this was only the second time I brought it up today..Well actually the third if I count talking to my mom about it.
I feel for ya hun. Good luck...Ares loves you from a far anyways. And knows how you feel.

Sending hugs, I still choke up when I see Patrick's photos, or his mom - and I lost her in 2001 (just after the large quake that hit not that far south of us)

*HUGS* to everyone. its good to see i am not the only one..

Maybe it seems silly but i think Ares comes to visit me when I am having a hard time...

I was laying down for a nap a littl while ago, and I felt this familar little "jump" on the bed. ares had a very special way of jumping on the bed...i opened my eyes and looked and none of the other kitties where on the bed..

But I still "felt" like there was one..

I am so sorry for your loss. All of us who have experienced the loss of our pets know how you feel. Hugs to all who deal with the pain of it everyday.

I think it's safe to say that for most (if not all) of us here, our pets are a key part of our family. When we lose one, it's something you NEVER get over. It does get a little easier over time, but you never stop missing them. It's been 8 yrs. since I sadly had to say good-bye to best friend. A male Akita named "Kamikaze". He was 10 and suffering from a "perocardial effusion". There are days when I remeber him so vividly that I sware I can just reach out and pat his big furry head. Those thoughts will ALWAYS form a lump in my throat. So on that note, I will keep this brief. But my thoughts are with you....and YES, they have a way of letting you know that they're doing alright. I'm sure your kitty loved you way too much to know that his passing causes you to be sad. He'd want you to know that he's happy and would want you to feel happy for him as well.
