    hasn't hit me yet

    What does it mean when a person says - It hasn't hit me yet? Does it mean that person hasn't come to full realization of something that took place but will eventually?

    Are these correct usages?

    I have been elected the president, but it hasn't hit me yet.
    My neighbor's dog died, but it hasn't hit him yet.
    I am not a teacher.

    I wouldn't use the definite article before president.
