Does anyone have a service animal? I am considering getting one and wanted to know your experiences with it.

      @Katharina I have one for my anxiety attacks and Cyclothymia lows. It can be hard to train at times but it’s super rewarding too.

      I do!! I’ve been self training!! Dms are always open. It’s takes a couple years but every dog is different.

      I have an emotional support cat that I got a year after I was kicked out. He's what keeps me going most days. The only issue is that I became too attached to him so now I find it hard to go a week without seeing him I went on a week long vacation out to MA and by day 5 I was crying because I still hadn't figured out how to control shit on my own side. But I highly recommend emotional support animals

        @Len I have psychogenic non epileptic seizures and was hopeful to have an animal to help with that, which is more than an ESA can do, but thank you for the recommendation.

      I do. I love her and I'm training her myself. When I get the funds there's an awesome trainer that'll help me too!

      I don't have one myself, but my cousin, who is blind, has one for many reasons including emotional support. Hers is not only trained as a seeing-eye dog, but for low blood sugar, and seizures. She would not survive without him. He quite literally is her lifeline. He reminds her to eat regularly, tells her when a seizure is near and has even protected her from a near break-in of her home. I have known others that have support animals too. Not only dogs but cats as well. All of them say that they are a huge blessing and couldn't imagine not having them in their life.

      I got a puppy as a therapy dog and can't go anywhere without him. But I would recommend a dog rather than a pup ha ha. As mine is wild x

        @loner.girl I’m looking more for a service dog to support me with my anxiety and conversion disorder (I have psychogenic non epileptic seizures), but thank you!
