It took the loss of my precious puppy 2 weeks ago for me to finally feel the grief of the loss of my marriage. I was so busy getting a new life and moving on that I didn't stop to grieve that loss. Now I am feeling as though the universe has taken my dear dog away to make sure that I learn this lesson. It has been so hard on me. I am on stress leave, but also had to quit my job because I couldn't rely on them paying me on time because they are bad business people and are losing their business. My therapist says out of the top 5 biggest life stresses I am going through 3. Divorce, Death of a loved one and loss of a job. Sometimes I just don't feel like I can cope. I've got books and I've got support from friends but sometimes I just want to stay in bed and cry. I know I have to feel the feelings and go through all of this but why so much all at once? I want to find inner peace that everyone is talking about - Oprah and Ekheart etc. I feel like I've tried everything, meditation, counselling, staying in touch with friends and reaching out to family, dating etc... but I just don't feel good. I just want to be happy again. I feel so weak. How is this supposed to make me stronger? and when? So troubled, lost, lonely, scared... I need your help again DS friends....
