I am a gal who thrives on routine. So, here's my "3 Days Post Discovery" routine I've formulated for myself to get through the morning:
Up at 6
Walk dogs at 6:30
Set up coffee and breakfast at 7
Primal scream in the shower for 10 minutes at 7:15
Cry really, really hard for about 20 minutes at 7:30
Lay down and take four Advil at 7:50
Eat breakfast and drink coffee at 8:00
Cry a little bit more between 8 - 8:30
Calm down and start the rest of my day - 8:30
I have a feeling this is going to be my morning routine for a while. Is this normal?
God, I wish there was a way to tell the dogs that this will pass, and that everything will be okay. They look so panicked and concerned.
