Just need to talk with people who might get where Im coming from
So Im sure most of you are familiar with who I am, and what I went through with my last GSD, Diesel. Its been almost a year since her tragic accident and it took me months to start feeling "normal" again even with having Penny. I suffered for nearly 4 months with constant nightmares of what happened, and random thoughts would crop up in my mind, images of what happened which would give me extreme anxiety. But it had stopped (thank god) around March.
But the last two weeks or so I have been getting increased nightmares again, coupled with the high anxiety. I know its still two months and a few days away till its exactly one year but for whatever reason my mind has me all amped up.
I have been having trouble sleeping and eating and have been feeling really nervous with Penny and have been watching her like a hawk (I know the chances of anything similar happening to Penny around the same time is astronomical but I can't help feeling like this).
Has anyone else gone through something similar? I had gone to counselling for this but I haven't gone in months because I thought that I was fine, but obviously I still need some help with this. Its not something you can shake easily (watching your beloved pet get hit by a truck and suffer until being PTS at the vets), and was wondering if anyone had any tips or advice on how to proceed.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, it means a lot.
