The Saddest Post

Tuesday, February 16, 2016

Last week was hands down one of the hardest weeks I can ever remember having. Every time I thought that I would have five seconds to catch my breath, I felt like I was knocked over sideways with more bad news. It started on Wednesday, when we got the saddest news that Daniels grandmother had passed away. She was the sweetest, most loving person in his family and my heart broke for their entire family. 

On Thursday, I came home from school to discover that our little Stitch kitten, and Minnie both had fleas. We've had fleas once before and it was one of the worst experiences ever so we went into survival mode to try and destroy any fleas floating around in our apartment. 

Friday, I took Minnie to the vet for a flea bath and an exam. She had been acting a little strangely lately but she's been consistently healthy for the past ten years that we've had her, so I didn't think much into it. On Saturday, I received the most devastating news that she was suffering from liver failure and pancreatitis. It was so far advanced that we made the decision to put her down so she wouldn't have to suffer anymore. It was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. 

I spent the rest of Saturday, Sunday, and Monday with my family trying to make sense of the week. I've woken up each day wishing that the whole week had been some horrible nightmare that would start itself over and reverse everything, but it wasn't. 

Although I woke up again sad today, I am focusing this morning on trying to be more positive. I am a believer that my own happiness is in my control, and there are things that I can do to start feeling better. Today, that means catching up and getting ahead on my homework while I lay in bed watching Gilmore Girls. It also means stopping for coffee before work this afternoon and getting to sleep early tonight. It's the little things that help me get back into my normal routine that make me feel better. Things can only get easier from here. 

How do you get through hard times?
