Watching today's episode was extremely difficult. Just when I thought everything was moving in a great direction, a bomb hit me out of no where. Words cannot describe the excruciating mental pain I went through after losing Chloe. Chloe was my little girl and best friend for over eight-and-a-half years and her death was unexpected and unwarranted. There truly is no love that compares to the love of an animal. I still think about her daily.
The period of time from the death of Chloe and the months following were extremely difficult for me. I had never experienced loss and suffering of a loved on. A week after her death, I attended Chad's Palm Beach open house, one which ended in me crying. Was I mentally ready to get out of my house? No. But as a friend of Chads, I wanted to support him.
I think this episode truly shows my human side. I'm not perfect by any means, but I constantly strive to be. And even when you prepare for life, you can never be prepared enough.
