Hello companions,

I'm a student. My parents gifted me a puppy two years ago. But a month before, I viewed my puppy dying in front of me.

I was so close to her, and we were in a strong bond that I could never live without her. Yet, a month ago, my doggy was determined to have pneumonia. We hurried to the emergency clinic late around evening time, seeing some breathing trouble in her. We gave her meds; however, after two days, the situation got harder. I saw her body shuddering, and the tongue turned purple. At the point when my dad came and saw her changes, he murmured as she is dying.

It was tough for me to accept that.

It has been a month; however, I can't come back to the truth that she is dead. I am not able to focus on my studies and am not even interested in my favourites. My parents fear whether these are the indications of PTSD.

We have booked an appointment for a clinical psychologist one week from now.

Companions, has anyone ran over a comparable circumstance?

What do you all think? Is it possible for me to overcome this situation with fair treatment?

I'm waiting for your response.

Thanks
