I lost both my parents, suddenly, within 5 months of each other. In both cases I participated in the decision to unplug them.
I was pretty messed up emotionally for a while (on the inside). Still functioning on the outside.
I have turned into a quiet hypochondriac (keep thinking every pain is cancer, heart problems, etc), and every now and then I get really sad at the littlest thing
Last 2 good dogs last year - one was my best friend. I get all teary eyed when I see a black and tan dachshund having fun and galloping around.
It gets harder, not easier.
I don't have any answers for you.
You just have to keep on "keepin on" when people depend on you. My obligations keep me together.
