    For Everyone Who Was Emotionally Destroyed From Last Night's "This Is Us"

    "Does anyone know how many bereavement days you get for a fictional character who's not technically family?"

    If you're a This Is Us fan, every Tuesday night it's become customary to grab a box of tissues and a bottle of wine, and prop yourself on the couch for an hour of sobbing.

    Hulu / NBC

    But last night's episode was so exceptionally sad, it made us feel emotions we didn't even know existed. Here are just a few tweets that said exactly what our broken hearts were feeling.

    1. The exhaustion:

    Dammit, #ThisIsUs! I mean it this time! I don't have anymore tears to give you. I've been sobbing my face off for 16 WEEKS and I'm exhausted

    2. The ducks:

    Just finished #ThisIsUs and need to be held like a baby. 😭 Just when I think I can make it, those damn ducks!! 😭😭😭

    3. The sobbing:

    I didn't just cry, I openly wept after #ThisIsUs & even after I think about it some more I still cry @NBCThisisUs, powerful ep & writing

    4. The inevitable awards:

    5. The record-breaking amount of tears:

    #ThisIsUs Producer: How many times can we make people cry this week? Writer: What's our current record? Producer: 12. Writer: We can do 14.

    6. The aftereffects:

    I just finished This is Us .. 😭#ThisIsUs

    7. The feels:

    I. Can't. The emotions are just too much #ThisIsUs

    8. The very real loss:

    Does anyone know how many bereavement days you get for a fictional character who's not technically family? #ThisIsUs

    9. The love:

    If we could do away with all the crap on tv and just watch #ThisIsUs every night, I believe we could achieve world peace.

    10. This truth:

    Not going to work today due to emotional issues aka been crying like an idiot for hours over my precious William #ThisIsUs

    11. THE DAMN DUCKS:

    Me when they showed the ducks @NBCThisisUs #thisisus

    12. The anxiousness:

    I DON'T EVEN WANT TO THINK ABOUT JACK DYING Y'ALL BETTER GIVE ME A COUPLE YEARS OR SO HELP ME #ThisIsUs

    13. The perfection:

    I've watched about a million hours of television in my life. And those last 5 minutes were as beautiful as it gets. Thank you, #ThisIsUs.

    14. The weird new feelings:

    When a tv show gets you caught up in feels you didn't know you had #ThisIsUs

    15. This perfect life motto:

    Note to self: "Roll down the windows. Turn up the music." ❤️🎹 #ThisIsUs

    16. Those heartbreaking moments:

    These two moments....one beginning & one end 💙 beautiful job, @sterlingkb1 @MiloVentimiglia #roncephasjones… https://t.co/0VXHTBOJhj

    17. The perfection:

    Wow, #ThisIsUs was so incredible. A ode to grief, loss and pain all whilst celebrating life. Kudos to the writers and actors. Astonishing.

    18. This truth:

    Haven't been this sad/upset/emotionally distressed about a fictional character since they killed Mufasa on Lion King . #ThisIsUs 😭

    19. This important question:

    Sobbed uncontrollably at William's death on #ThisIsUs, I have no clue how to prepare for Jack's. Will there be grief counseling for fans?

    20. This beautiful tribute:

    "The two most important people in my life is the one there at the very beginning and the one here at the end." -William #ThisIsUs

    21. This perfect alternate title:

    They should call it "This is us crying" #ThisIsUs

    22. And this soul-crushing moment of love:

    WILLIAM PAYING HIS RESPECTS TO JACK I AM DONE @NBCThisisUs #ThisIsUs

    See you next week for more sobbing!!!
