Does anyone else battle exhaustion and depression during this process? Sometimes I just feel so inadequate. To boot, there are trade offs between caring for pets and caring for everything else in my life. I am really struggling. I have two geriatric dogs (one with kidney disease and one with severe arthritis) and Hamilton won’t let anyone but me give him injections. I traveled once back home to see family for Christmas and it was disasterous for Hamilton. I’ve cancelled all work travel and can’t get away, not even for groceries. Luckily, my husband is a trooper and we can get things delivered, but I’m so worn down. I have no idea how to cope at this point.
