Spring Challenge couldn't have come at a better time!

Sunday, May 08, 2011

Oh..I'm so glad this challenge started when it did. I need it! What's even better is I'm still with my CATS Team! I think this is my 4th time around. It's the greatest team ever!

So, my prior Cat's team members already know that I lost my precious Rudy on Feb 26th. This has been absolutely devastating to me. I'm in a fog and can't seem to get out of it. Depression and severe, severe panic anxiety attacks have me out on a medical leave until May 20th. I've started couseling and seeing my doctor, so I'm hoping for some relief soon. I just can't seem to get over losing my boy. He was my everything and it's hard for me to move on.

So, I'm glad the challenge started. I'm going to really focus on getting in some exercise and watching what I eat. I have to do this. My inspiration and focus will be my Rudy and Riley. Riley will walk with me every step of the way and Rudy will be right by my side in spirit always. He has already come to me in several visions already and I've been able to capture them on camera. (See pic below in truck window). It's heartwarming to know he's still around, but I just wish I could still hold him, walk him......

    Losing a pet is terrible. We have lost two Yorkies and both were 13 years old. They brought us so much laughter and fun. We now have another Yorkie and he is precious too. Hugs to you for your loss!!!

    It's really hard to lose a pet, but it's true that it gets better overtime. I'm glad that you can take comfort in Riley and the fact that you can feel his presence. I hope you will get relief soon. emoticon

    So glad to have you part of the Cats team again. It's hard to loose a furbabt, they're part of my family. It's encouraging that you can find comfort in Riley and in knowing Rudy is still with you.

    Eat for stress when stressed: lots of fruits and veggies that are raw or frozen. Glad you are here, too. emoticon

    emoticon for your loss and I am also glad that you are keeping Rudy with you in spirit. It is hard when you lose a beloved pet, It will take sometime to thinks of him and not become tearly. I know because we lost our cat (Mittens) after 11 years about 3 years ago but I still feel the loss.
    I hope that you enjoy the challenge and find support on some hard days. I am with the butterfies team but we here for one another.
    emoticon remember all the good times you shared and celebrate those moments. emoticon emoticon
