Oh Smooter...I am so very sorry for your loss. I went through this about 2 years ago too and felt every emotion possible. And yes, losing your best bud could definately be the trigger that set off your panic attacks and palpitations again. When I lost Bandit I felt all of these things too. If you are prone to this and have a history of them (as you said) than it couldn't hurt to perhaps start your meds. again (if you had them) or go back to therapy to sort through all of this. It will take a good amount of time, tears and anger to get back on track again. Do whatever you can to help yourself through your grieving process. And remember, you are definately not alone. We're all here to listen and help.
I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers! And again, I'm so very sorry.
Smooter,I am sincerely sorry for your loss. I had the very same problem in November and I cried for days, how was I to go on and to have to make the decision to let my beautiful best friend go as she was suffering broke my heart.
I think your anxiety is normal considering the situation. If you continue to have problems it may be time to talk with your PCP. You are in mourining so go slowly my friend.Hugs
I understand so well, We had two Dobermans, one mine and the other my hubbies..........well they both belong to us but the two chose their masters............mine was the oldest and her name was By Design's D' Oblique, I called her Dee. She was the most lovable dog and was always right by my side. She was 12 years old and I had to make the decision for her sake to let her go. I sat on the floor with her for days, hugging her and crying all over her. I went with her to the vet and sat on the floor with her laying on her fav blanket. As a nurse I knew exactly what was happening and when she left me a piece of my heart went with her...........I loved her so. She was my beautiful show dog, my best friend.
I know how you feel. God Bless
How are you doing my friend. I am thinking of you and hope you are holding on to the good memories.HugsKitt
