anxiety because of animal love


I am a female from India. If you don't already know, the way animals are treated in this country is horrendous. I was always an Animal lover. Carrying food with me always for the street dogs. 4 years ago my family adopted a stray dog and I've been in love with him ever since. We had a.lot of rabbits before him too. I am a young working professional, so I do whatever I can. Getting them sterilize and building a hay home for the dogs in my area during winter. Treating them when they r sick. Off late I've become close to a stray in an area a little far from my home. I go there twice a week to feed her. The people there are not very nice and I stay worried all the time. I keep crying at home and keep thinking what she must be going through. It has taken a toll on my life. I just can't seem to stop worrying and suddenly get panic in d middle of the night. Any animal commercial or movie or images makes me deeply disturbed and I keep thinking about it. I don't know how to stop it. Please help me.

The world needs more people like you. I understand the frustration and worry you feel because I too think about animals who are suffering all over the world. I am an animal advocate and I wish that I could save all who suffer. You are making a big difference. I get so frustrated, Sad and angry when I hear about or read about an animal being abused. I try to avoid hearing and reading things like that because the images and thoughts haunt me. I do what I can to distract myself when I have the thoughts and images. You have a kind heart and a good soul and I’m glad that you’re in the world to help those animals that need you!!! Please take care of yourself and know that you are not alone because others care too:)
