      @Mallorie thank you so much and it’s not dumb I had two hermit crabs and I have like attachment issues from being left non stop by my parents and then them coming back and everything like that so I get attached to pets instantly but people it takes longer way longer so I fully understand because I cried when my two passed away

      this is so dumb but i found my hermit crab dead and i just bawled for hours. anytime any pet dies it’s hard, arguably one of the hardest things to go through in life. allow yourself to feel all the emotions that come to you. it’s unfortunately part of the process of grieving. we’re all here for you, even if we’re strangers. reach out if you need anything my dear <3

        @Mallorie now i laugh bc i had my hermit crab for maybe 3 months and “she” died last year but i get attached to any animal very easily. i’m sure you have so many more loving and amazing memories with your animal. but they’ll ALWAYS be with you.

      You’re allowed to do both! Grief doesn’t look any which way. There’s going to be days you don’t think about it at all and then you feel guilty and then angry and then sad again and then laughing in the same moment about a stupid memory. Allow yourself to feel all the feelings, but don’t get stuck in them and do your best to take care of your physical health right now especially while the mental is off. Set alarms for showering, ask others for support, plan out when you’re eating and drinking, etc.

        @Baby_Cactus i use drinking tea naps running and showers as my kinda “get away” and coping but eating been hard my whole life I’ve been diagnosed with an Ed since 3rd grade but I’m good at also making myself not stay in bed every day I mean most days my beds my go to but I have work and sometimes when I’m off I bring my dog to work too

      I’m so sorry :( I also dealt with this recently. Try to surround yourself with loved ones and support systems, it won’t get better immediately, it’ll be really hard. But over time you’ll adjust and recover- it really is the thing that heals. Sending hugs 🥺

        @Uncrustable thank you I’ve kinda isolated myself in my room with my dog and cat so that I can just have a moment to try to breathe as I was digging the hole for Lilly I accidentally dug up chip 💔 so I had all that pile on out of the blue so I just wanted to cry and throw up if that makes sense I guess ? Idk I have a headache and just want to stay cuddled with the cat and dog

          @Emmys that totally makes sense, that’s a very tragic thing to have resurface :( I’m very sorry, again. Give yourself time to mourn and cry as much as you can, it helps a lot. Just make sure to keep hydrated so you don’t end up feeling physically worse.
