Never underestimate the power of grief compounding mental ailment to mess with your head. Make no mistake: that's what's happening here. You aren't a murderer and you didn't kill ebony

When is your next appointment with a therapist/psychiatrist?

Re: Making bad things happen just by thinking about them

I do have a doctor appointment on Tuesday after work, so I can try once more to get help without going private but I'm not holding my hopes up that they'll give a crap

Re: Making bad things happen just by thinking about them

I believe in premonitions somewhat but in this case I think it was just unfettered worry. I agree that a professional could help with this. Sometimes we get so used to that self talk that tells us everything is our fault that we do not have the ability to differentiate between what we can control and what we cant. I try very hard not to worry about things I cant control. Especially if they are in the past. If I find myself ruminating I'll give myself five minutes to go there and they deep breath and tell myself "you did not have anything to do with xyz" like a mantra. Think about it, if worrying fretting and ruminating changed the outcome of things we would all be in much better places.

Re: Making bad things happen just by thinking about them

I worry about this too star. Hugely.

It's not the case though. Your thoughts can't change your environment. They can influence your actions and then your actions influence your environments but your actions regarding ebony were all living and caring.

What happened was not under your control. It was just bad luck (and a bad past ...before she met you). If her well being had been exclusively under your control she would have been the happiest and healthiest cat ever and she would have lived forever.
