Last week my dog was officially diagnosed with cancer. She’s going to be 13, the cancer isn’t curable. She’s my first dog. I’m coming off of my own medical issues, I’ve always considered myself a strong person but I feel this is going to break me. I’m not handling it well and people who I’ve considered closest to me have let me down by not being there the way I’ve been there for them when they’ve needed the support in the past. I honestly don’t know how to navigate through this.
