I feel for you …. I know how it feels to have a little sick lizard that you are trying really hard to save and giving your all to help .
This tough old retired steel engineer has been know to have a good cry and shed lots of tears when his special rescue lizards have died.

Don't beat yourself up over this , you did everything humanly possible to help her . She is no longer suffering and is at rest.

If you decide to get another (my advise is to replace her ASAP as the new pet lizard even if it's not another bearded dragon will give you something to focus on will you recover emotionally . Before housing a new lizard in her tank, a very thorough clean out and sterilization is needed to ensure the new resident wont be infected by what ever killed her.

Thank you. I have another baby beardie in another Vivarium, I actually haven’t really given him that much of attention but now will be able to focus on him. He’s very healthy. It’s just very sad and will take time :(

Thank you for your kind words. I fed her at 2pm and she was extremely lethargic but still her good and water and I was so happy as I thought she’s finally gonna get better, got her new baby foods to try, she loved the peas one :( and then I actually have a camera and all beside her viv and she was fine and breathing moving around slightly. And then at 8 pm, maybe I haven’t checked on her 2-3 hours at that stage which I feel so bad about ;( and she was already gone.. :( she passed In her sleep. It’s such a horrible thing but I do really hope she’s in a better place :( no more suffering :(
