My tough holiday weekend

I lost my beloved mom to cancer on Saturday and my little buddy, my dachshund, Duke, this afternoon. I could use some kind words from you guys.

I'm so sorry, OP. Maybe this gif, a DL icon, will make you feel just a little better.

Be blessed that you had them for as long as you did.

I'm am terribly sorry for your losses. No one will ever fully understand what you are going through, but I am hear to listen.

Call a mutual friend over and have a glass of wine and share fun memories of your mother.

I'm so sorry this is going on for you. Let yourself fall apart for a bit. Take to the bed when you are not making arrangements. It's going to suck for a while but you will make it and you will remember your Mom and Duke in ways that bring comfort to you. You gave them both a better life and they will always be in your heart and memories. This is the hardest part of life as humans. But you are stronger than you ever imagined. Peace to you

My God OP I'm so very sorry. I have no words. Just try to be in touch with your feelings. Let them out. Don't deny yourself that.

And one day hopefully sooner than later I hope you're able to be at peace.

I bet both were lucky to have you.

Would your mom be proud of you for being this desperate for attention? I’m not being cunty, just asking honestly what she was like.

OP, please pay attention starved, low IQ R12 no mind. He knows not what he's doing.

Peace, OP.

I am ver sorry OP. You are going through the worst of times. It seems you had a great relationship with your mother. That is a blessing and may the happy memories sustain you. I speak from experience.

Any one of those things would be a lot to handle but both at once — incredibly rough time, OP.

I'm sorry for both of your losses.

I’m very sorry for your losses, OP. That’s so sad. I hope you have someone you can to talk to (in person). Online helps, but face-to-gave is better. Hugs.

You will get through this. ❤️

So sorry for losses OP. You must feel your world has collapsed. Please be patient with yourself. Move through the grieving process in a manner that you feel is right not what others tell you to do. Seek out friends if you're religious make sure you seek comfort at your house of worship. I wish you the best OP, you are strong, you are a survivor!

Interesting that most of the responses are about the dog instead of the mother.

I'm getting there too, OP. I'm afraid my dog is getting ready for the big dog park in the sky. She's 14 and yes a rescue dog.

I'm so sorry OP. A few years ago I lost my dad, cousin, and close friend within 4 months. It's going to be really rough for you, every day will be different. One day you'll be sad but able to go about your day and the next you'll be so overwhelmed with grief you won't be able to get out of bed.

If you need to cry, then cry. If you need to sleep all day then just do it. Take care of yourself. Hope you get through this.

I'm very sorry for your losses OP, that's a double whammy. I think I'd curl up in my bed for a week or weeks. I lost my mother last year, it was expected and yet, it still hurt like hell. And does.

Sending peace and well wishes your way. Take care of yourself.

OP, in times like this it pays to concentrate your feelings on me.

I’m waiting for my 4qt. Saucier pan and have ingredients for its first use. The pan is delayed.

Sorry about the dog, etc.

R13, that video is weird. It's narrated by a female Sheldon Cooper type. I think OP can safely skip it.

OP, my favorite cat is named Duke and he's like a dog, very affectionate. Doxies are very cute and a lot better fun to be around. I'm sure Duke was a great pup and ruled the roost as dachshunds tend to do. I'm sure that he lived up to his name. I'm very sorry for the loss of your pal and your mom, too. Take it easy and we're all here if you need a shoulder to cry on.
