I am a 19 year old female in desperate need of a Psychiatric Service Dog. I am mentally disabled, suffering from pseudo-seizures, severe anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, separation anxiety and more.
I have what is called a 'dependant'. This is someone who I attach myself to, unwillingly, and cannot perform simple tasks without that person; such as stepping outside of my house. On weeks that my dependant is away, I am unable to step outside of my house and quite literally lock myself in - shutting and locking all doors and windows as I become extremely afraid. I have been loving independently with my dependant for some time on and off over what will be a 2 year period but unfortunately my dependant will be moving away and this is expected to cause a lot of complications for my mental wellbeing and health. However, it is believed that if I have a Psychiatric Service Dog, I will be able to divert my dependancy from this person to the dog.
I miss being able to go for walks in the sun, seeing other people and just being able to live. I have been unable to gain work as I cannot physically leave my home and function alone. If I had a Psychiatric Service Dog, I would be able to do these things as well as every day tasks that you may find simple but are incredibly terrifying for me; such as hanging the washing, checking the mail, taking out the bin weekly and even opening the front door when my mother comes to visit. The Dog will be trained to alert medical services in cases of emergency - such as my seizures - among other personalised tasks.
If you could please donate any amount you can towards helping me become a functioning person, I would be forever grateful. All I want is to be able to afford a Psychiatric Service Dog so I can be the best I can be for me and the people around me.
The total I am hoping to raise will cover the cost for the Dog, vet fees and the specialised training course OR a Dog who is already specially trained bought from a training organisation.
