On Monday, I lost my cat that I've had since she was 10 weeks old.  She was almost 18.  It was not a sudden thing.  She'd been sick since shortly before Christmas and what followed was a three month battle to try and improve her life.  During that time, I dedicated just about every waking (and many when I should have been sleeping) moment to fighting for her health.  Losing that battle was inevitable, but I was hoping for more time.  On Monday, we were pretty much backed into a corner and there was nothing left for us to do for her.  It was a complex situation and we'd finally run out of options. 

This has affected me far more than I'd expected and I've been pretty useless since Monday afternoon.  Who am I kidding?  I've been pretty damned useless since December.  Losing her has left a huge hole in my life.  I understand nothing lives forever.  I understand that pets have a shorter lifespan than their human counterparts.  I understand it all.  Understanding doesn't help me.

Aside from my wife, my cat was the most important thing in my life.  I am at a loss as to how to get past it.  I'm trying to approach it from a Seth perspective, but I'm lost.  I read the words, and they are just words.  I don't feel them.  I am completely exhausted from months of poor or no sleep and fighting what I suspected all along was a losing battle.  I look and feel like I've aged five years in the last three months.  I need to find some way to put this into perspective and reclaim my life.

Any of you Sethies have any sage words of wisdom that might help me get my head on straight?
