Depression and Mourning
by: Grandma

Hello Smitha,

I'm so sorry to read about the loss of your love bird. I know how hard it is to lose a pet you love so much. I went through losing my dog a few years ago because of the dog food poison we had here in the U.S.. I thought I was giving her the best food money could buy only to learn that I was poisoning her a little at a time each day. I still haven't been able to bring myself to get another dog.

The important thing is Smitha is to know that you did your best as far as taking care of your bird and you can't let the mourning you are going through keep you depressed, you still have another bird that is depending on you to love it and take care of it. You should also be spending more time with your friends and allow them to comfort you. You also need to pull yourself together and go to work. Work is important in all our lives. We all need to feel needed. Nobody can pull you out of this depression but you. You have been through worse and you know you have a strong spirit, so have faith in yourself.

I will keep you in my prayers,
