When the goldfish was sick and was under medical treatment I was so anxious, so stressful because I worried about the effectiveness of the fish medicine. I held my breathe all the time, watching them anxiously. I could do nothing but watching and waiting.
Taking care of goldfish is ten times harder than looking after a human baby because goldfish have no fish doctors or fish hospitals despite that they tend to get sick and die.
OMG, I made a wrong decision when I chose what animal to be my pets.
More than 20 days have passed since I started treating my sick fish with fish medicines. During the past 20 or so days I suffered from anxiety and sorrow almost every day. I don’t think I can stand it any more.
U can pet white mice and guinea pig if u have enough space…i am getting them after a month or two…!!!
Thanks for the suggestion @far_cry0 . But I don’t want to keep any pets now as I’m going to focus on my writing and reading. I have already had a good plan for writing. Also my cognition is better.
Do what u like @green5 …!!! Take care and have a lovely day ahead…!!!
hey @green5 yeah it’s not easy if your not up to keeping tank clean and dandy! It’s never an easy thing with fish.
I do cats. Cats are relatively independent but do what they got to do. They are fun and quite cuddly most of them but they do have personalities.
Give up the fish! They were causing you way too much stress and that isn’t a bad thing! Stress isn’t good for sz people !
You tried your best! You seemed to take good care of them! Unfortunately fish don’t live very long. You did everything you could though. Try to take comfort in that. (Hugs)
Thank you @Noise your words gives me some courage to take care my little babies longer and longer time. I felt exhausted today.
Give them away. Fish aren’t sentimental about who owns them they haven’t developed enough on the evolutionary scale to feel love anyone who owns them or care who owns them. You’re not going to hurt their feeling if you give them away.
The old gambling wisdom says, "Don’t throw good money after bad.
@green5 I’m sorry for your water breathers. Best wishes for you.
Can you rehome your fish, @green5?
