Nothing but time heals, but as you've said, being here where everyone understands your pain and loss, definately helps.
I'm glad this site has offered comfort.

I know it will take time, tomorrow will be three weeks. Having my bird buddies help so much. I don't know who created this group, they are fabulous people, to offer help, support and advice. No scammers or annoying bullies and advertisements.

I finally thought I was getting through this. Today is laundry and clean house today and I missed so much, talking to him and the way he watched me, climbing out of his cage to give me kisses. It's like the healing wound was ripped wide open today and all I have been able to is cry my heart out.

Grief is not linear for sure! I saw this a few years ago and really identified with it. I just cried big ugly tears a couple weeks ago about my cat who passed away in 2018. Nothing will ever totally take it away, but it happens less frequently. :hug8:

Difficult situation, there is no recipe for dealing with these things. I can only send you my best wishes for feeling better.

@Mizzely Thank you for that post. I don't know if this will make much sense, however, it does help me to understand why I am feeling this way. I guess in a way, I was afraid my pain and grief wasn't normal and I felt a little scared about those feelings. Thank you all for staying with me during this journey.

Yesterday was week 4, I still miss him. Coming home to a quiet house and waking up is still hard. Going to bed with out making his supper is tough. Its getting easier, but will take more time. So glad I can express my feelings here.
