I suffered from depression and anxiety for over 30 yrs until 1 day my therapist suggested I rescue a dog. Ralph was my first. That was 15 yrs ago. I was really down and suicidal and had been thru every med in the book and 2 rounds of ECT, nothing worked but Ralph (the dog) did. He was my mission and couldn't be ignored, He filled my void something to take care of, to love and to snuggle. I now have 2. They get me out of the house, I meet new people and realize most suffer from depression and feel much better just going for a walk with their dog. I'm off all meds and see a therapist once a month. I feel much better about life. I know a dog isn't for everyone, but they keep me going and I don't think I could exist without one. I'm surprised the difference a dog can make in a life.

Omg we sound exactly the same!!! I used to live in WA state and it rains and is dark and dreary. I already had severe depression just as you stated and I also had 12 ECTs!!! I know your pain I truly do. Dogs have rescued me my whole life. The dog I had Cheyenne went thru some really hard times with me. I wish I could redo our life together. I was a horrific drunk/addict for 25 years trying to deal with the pain of constant suicidal thoughts and pain from addiction. I thought it would never get better. Got the Hell out of wa state and moved to Las Vegas!!!😂😂 The sun was healing! Starting over felt great and finally felt freedom for the first time in my life. Unfortunately my mom wanted me to move here in damn Utah and I hate it again. Miss Vegas a lot. But now I have maddie like your Ralph she's also a rescue. Had her now almost two weeks!! I'm so happy to hear how much dogs mean to you too!! Ralph sounds like an amazing boy😂😄💗 Aren't they the biggest blessing on earth?? I got a letter from Dr and now I can legally have her now as an emotional support dog. She has given so much love in just two weeks. Iv e spoiled her rotten. I just love her💗💗💗 like you said it does help to have someone to love and take great care of! I don't have kids and I hate men due to horrible circumstances. So dogs are my 🌎!!! I'm so glad that Ralph and your other dog help you so MUCH💗💗 I'm glad you rescued too cause they make the bestest of friends!! Thanks for sharing your story cause I know I'm not alone. I don't take anything for depression anymore due cbd oil. I take meds for bipolar2, adhd and one med for epilepsy but that's it now!!- wooohooo for us both feeling great with our best friends💗💗💗

Glad you got my note and congrats on getting your furry one certified. 👍👏🐶🐶

I have seen so many people changed by getting a pet. Mean people become sweeties once they get a dog. Like I said dogs aren’t for everyone. Try a cat, a gerbil, anything that needs to be cared for and fed. I think it’s best to have something that gets you out of the house. It’s not easy just a first step.

How have you been? I hope all is well and you’re furry friend is doing well in his new job and people are understanding of her function and your need. I have found that the general population needs education before they are accepted.

Let me know how’s things are going.

Hi there! How are things with you? Things here are good just sick of living in Utah. Iv e only been here almost a year and ready to go home to Vegas. In time I definitely will move back. Not fun and ppl are very mean here compared to Vegas. Makes it hard for me to get out but like you said having maddie helps. I don't think I can take her with me anywhere like a store and other places. I read its not a service dog and if its an ESA they're not allowed. Not sure cause I need her out with me. Dog parks we go to multiple times a day tho. She's passed out laying on me😊 so ADORABLE💗💗 just love her to pieces!!! Do you know where I can take her? Do you take yours with you to the store etc? Is yours a service animal or ESA? I'm so 😕 confused...

Im fine and have a few things for you to try.

1-Emotional Support (Animals) Dogs have got a bad rap cuz ppl have tried to say “squarels” “snakes” “gella monsters “ and the like as their ESA and tried to take them on planes. When Bugzi goes somewhere new I talk to the owner and say he will be with me and my husband—just to give them a “heads up”.

2- Bugzi, my new guy, is CGC cert via the AKC and I always have my DR’s note w/me. CGC (canine good citizen) just means he has manners and can be held by someone else if something happens to me. Also he wears a vest when he is working. I have a great story for some other time🐶🐶🐶🐶🐶

3- Since you take meds for epilepsy, ask your neurologist for a letter also. Epilepsy is one of the diseases listed in the ADA of “service” dogs. So Maddie is a double duty god. Get her a vest for medical service dog. Medically service dogs can not be refused access. If a place gives you trouble, try and assert yourself by stating the “federal ADA” Act” permits her access unless they want to deal w/ADA . I saw one the other day that simply said SECRET SERVICE DOG—it also covered multiple issues for a small boy. Also you are not required to tell how she helps you. HIPPA another fed law prohibits someone from asking and you don’t have to answer.

4-Please bear w/me I know this is long. Utah is different in a big way and excuse me if you are an LDS. We had friends that were LDS’s and they take care of their own. Our friends didn’t believe in meds and poor mental health was something God placed on you in order to build your character and make you a better person and help your soul be acceptable to God. We are no longer friends due to differences in politics and scientific medical practices. Basically, they didn’ help their child who was bullied at school because she had dixlecica and had difficulty reading.

5-Hope some of this helps. It’s very hard to break through into the LDS tight culture. They don’t have an open mind when it comes to addiction or drinking for they strongly believe it is evil. My advise is be careful who you tell and how much.

Take care and keep in touch. Bugzi is telling me it’s time for bed. I live on the east coast. Belly rubs for Maddie.

Thought of something else that may help—buy some cheap watercolors and painting how you feel. It might sound stupid but after a while it help, expecially abstract painting. Just put color on the paper, that’s all that’s required.
