Comment on Dealing with flashbacks after the death of your pet by Alix.
I lost my 5 year old guinea pig a few months ago. He became ill and he continued to deteriorate for about 3 weeks before passing. On his final day I held him as he passed and it wasnt very peaceful. I have trouble sleeping sometimes because I keep reliving it at night, so I’m struggling to find a definitive trigger other than the fact I’m trying to sleep.
I haven’t spoken much to my partner about it because I dont want him to have to think about it either 🙁
I’ll have a look around the site, but are there any further articles you think would be helpful?
