I'm new to this site and love reading peoples stories. I've only just found out that there is a title for how I have been feeling all my life. Reading everything out there can but a bit over whelming. A vivid memory just came back to me from when I was a child while reading through things. I love animals with my every being, I remember we had a dog called Lady. One night mum went out to go across the road to the Dairy and dad let the dog out in the back yard. I was pleading with him not to let the dog out but who listens to a 8 year old child? 10 minuets later mum comes rushing back saying Lady has been killed on the road following her to the shop. She escaped through a hole in the fence that we did not know about. I was hysterical, yelling at dad saying I told you not to let her out. Cried all night. How did I know? Then I just felt awful about how I yelled at dad as I could feel his pain and that he felt so responsible. I thought I would share my story with people who understand. I'm only now getting to grips with it all.. but now what? I'll keep on reading but it's just confirming feelings.. where do I go now?
