I am here out of sole desperation, feel free to let me know if I am in the wrong place. I miss my dogs to the point it hurts and I want to get this off my chest before I keep crying myself to sleep again because it feels horrible. Last year, a beautiful litter of puppies were born in my mother's house. Seven beautiful doggies, all healthy and happy were born and I cared and loved them along with our other two dogs as if they were my children. I knew they were the entire family's pets, but they had a special bond with me and I with them. They were my source of happiness, they helped a lot in distracting me from many of my mental problems. About a month ago, I left my family in bad terms seeking a better life. Out of anger, they decided to cut off contact between me and the dogs and I've been going crazy. I miss them, and I know they are okay but I miss being close to them. I already lost pets before, and it hurt and I thought opening up to more would have been cathartic but I am hurting far too much. I wonder, is there anything I can do to alleviate this pain?
