There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?” 

On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human. 

Therapy animals save lives.

These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury. 

Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!

I was reading an article of a service dog helping a person with schizophrenia. she stated that when she was seeing or hearing things and notices the dog is not reacting in any way, then she is able to ground herself, realizing what she was experiencing was not real and could work through it easier and is more able to ignore the delusions. And she pointed out she feels more comfortable with a service dog as well because well, dogs don’t judge and get angry for things like this

I teared up about this whole post to be honest.

i’ll never not reblog this post. it is so important.

I cried a little about this

I’m seriously working on having Theo be registered to be my therapy dog. He notices when I start to break apart before I really do anything and just quietly lays near me or nudges me with his head to just remind me that he’s there and things are alright. This make me cry a little because I know I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for my animals saving my life so many times.

Cash puppy does the hallucination thing for me!! (among many other things…) part of my broken brain is hallucinations ranging from minor aura, to vivid bug visuals that include tactile hallucinations. I will have Cash sit with me, and if she doesn’t react, I know it’s not real. 

Service dogs/therapy dogs/assistance dogs are amazing, diverse, incredible creatures <3

Hey ! how are you?

Hi! I’m actually doing quite well tonight – I went to the gym this afternoon and did some PT, then got back on the elliptical for the first time in more than a month. I could only stay on for half as long as I used to, but something is better than nothing! Since getting home from there, I’ve just been lying on my new couch couch reading a book; it’s been a lovely evening. Thanks for asking!
