Hi everyone, and thanks for taking time for me.

July 7th last year, I was at work, 2 and a half hours away, when I received word that my father had died.
Me along with my coworker rode up in one truck, and our boss in another.

My boss came over, and gave me the news, and said "Get in my truck, and i'll take you home".
It was the longest ride of my life. I was teary eyed for the whole ride.
Once I got home, and my family gathered for a consoling, I broke down and started crying hard.
As soon as I started crying hard, a really sharp pain developed in, behind, and around my right eye.
I had to force myself to stop crying, and as soon as I did the pain would go away.
Later on when I started crying hard again, the pain would come back.
If I forced myself to stop crying it would go away immediately.

Now, a year later, My pet Chihuahua of 15 years is currently laying on her death bed. If she makes it through tonight, she has an appointment for euthanization in the morning.

As a pet of 15 years, this is very upsetting for me, and I am having the same issue with the crying.
When I do, it feels like someone is stabbing me in the eye with an Ice pick, but if I force myself to stop crying, it stops immediately.

What the heck is going on? I know this can't be normal.
I had never experienced this until my father passed away.

How am I supposed to grieve?

What could this be?

Hello Eyeshurt & welcome to the forum. First let me say, I am very sorry about the loss of your father. You have my condolences for you & your family. have lost both of my parents & can understand very well. Even though I lost them many years ago, of course I still miss them, but I have some great memories & that helps.

As for your little Chihuahua, it is devastating losing a pet. I have had to take 3 of mine in over the years. As heart breaking as it is, I tell myself they have given me so many years of companionship, loyalty & joy & it would be unfair of me to allow one to suffer. That was the least I could have done for them.

You do seem to have a unique eye situation going on. I would suggest getting an appt with an ophthalmologist, this is a medical dr that specializes in eyes. He can evaluate you to see if there is anything going on with your eye.

Take care.
