Dramatic or BPD?

Hi, I’m Sal, and I’m new here, nice to meet you.
Lately my dog hasn’t been well: she lost a lot of weight, won’t eat, can’t walk properly, and the cause of all of this is probably cancer.
My dog is 11, I pretty much grew up with her, and since we share a very special emotional bond, I’ve been crying nonstop for at least 4 months, I often check if she’s stil breathing and I’m trying to stay home as much as I can to spend more time with her.
People close to me keep saying that I “have to be strong” and that I need to stop crying because they are sad too, and I’m making the situation worse.
I just can’t help it, I think about her and all the memories I have with her all day long, and just looking at her makes my eyes water.
Do you think I’m just prioritizing my pain over everybody else’s, or are my emotions just heightened because of BPD? #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #pet #sad

Tortoise Thoughts

Hello all.
This is Meldrew, he's my tortoise.
Sometimes he walks faster than most people can imagine, other times he walks slow, but he always gets to where he is going eventually.
Some we can feel like the pace we are going is like that of a tortoise, but remember, as long as you get to where you are heading eventually it's all okay. Don't worry about the pace you are going. ❤️ Have a fantastic day everyone.

My Poor Furr Baby

My 19 1/2 year old cat has a tumor that abscessed on his neck. I’ve been treating it all week but he keeps messing with it. This morning I walked in to what looked like a crime scene. He had scratched it off partway. I had to stop the bleeding and then figure out how to keep him from messing with it further. I created a makeshift covering with a sock and gauze which he’s tolerating semi well. I’m just heartsick over him and so worried. I understand logically that at 19 he’s an old man but I adore him so much. He’s been my soul animal and my constant companion through trauma healing. I just hope that I know when the time is right to say goodbye and that it’s not soon. Sigh. Thanks for reading. #Trauma #MightyPets #pet #Grief #Anxiety #PTSD #Hypervigilance

I really am missing my sweet fur baby Melvin Lick. I have about six more weeks before My families tiny home is done, and he can rejoin his family. He is so therapeutic for me. He’s 14 years old and has kidney failure. However he is doing well with his sub Q fluids. Not having him around has been really hard on me. Prayers for his continued good health even healing would be appreciated. Prayers that he will be reunited with his family soon also are very appreciated. Than you all and God bless you😃

Animal Crackers 😂🐾

I just crack up when I see my lab mix, Bryson, sleeping like this! 💤

If you have pets, what’s something they do that makes you smile?

I should have written earlier

Thank you. Thank you so much for all of the support you all have been giving me and my cat. This is the first time ever i share my feelings AND get support from people. It makes me realize I should have posted here way earlier when i struggled with loneliness and chronic illness. Anyway, thank you. ❣️

(sleeping in the living room to spend as much time as possible with my dearest cat)

Why is this so hard?

Tonight i'm crying. Before posting for the first time here, i was thinking a lot. It's really hard for me to share my emotions and be vulnerable. But tonight i'll try because it's too hard for me to handle alone...
My cat has been my only support for 14 years, but she's really sick. I'm so scared and i can't live without her. I always told myself "as long as my cat is alive, i will live too." but now my world is about to be crushed. I don't know what to do. I guess being able to write this makes my heart less heavy... 💭

I'll spend the night with my cat. Good night everyone and thanks for reading. 🌙
