Im going to college soon. I have suffered from high anxiety ever since I was young but haven’t gotten medicated for it. I am wanting to register my cat as an ESA, so she can live in my apartment. She makes me anxiety much more manageable and she is the reason Ive been able to get homework done on time and haven’t felt too overwhelmed. Should I talk to my therapist about registering her or just go directly to ask about anxiety meds. I am almost 19 and I haven’t even gotten my driver’s license by how bad my anxiety comes up.

      also I suggest rly trying to push yourself to get that license, I was the same way and now just driving around helps calm my anxiety :)

      Sometimes pets are the "medication" that you need. Ask for the cat because that way you still have your furry friend with you. If that doesn't work then ask about the meds.

      Maybe both? Cat + meds = maybe something sustainable
