This was so uncoordinated. He wanted the picture to happen, i didnt, yet its turned out to be the cheesiest and best and happiest photo ive seen in a long time
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 cried a little about this
I want to date someone who will let me wrap up in them while it’s raining and drink tea with me. I want to be able to watch marathons on Netflix with them and cook on my underwear with them. I want to have forehead kisses, sweet kisses, rough kisses, and all the kisses in between. I…

I hate how easily things can be forgotten.
Things. People. Routines.
I sway from speaking someone to not, and then when ive not spoken to them for a while i get jealous of something and try and talk to them again. Im fed up of it.
Im fed up of several people. Not because im jealous. But because they were unnecessarily mean. Dont lie to me and say its because of your girlfriend when its blatantly because of you. Grow a pair.
