  1. Meditation and yoga. That could help calm and relax you. Even getting a pet could prove to be good for your anxiety.
  2. Oh. yeah so try some meditation and yoga. Do that in the morning. I thought of a pet as it helps with all the love and care it gives. Also with a dog you can go out for a walk and it does help feel better.
  3. It works both ways. A vicious circle truly. Insomnia can cause anxiety and anxiety can cause insomnia. Suffering from the same for about 3 years now.
  4. Yes i understand where you are coming from. Probably getting a dog or a cat could really prove to be helpful. I got myself a dog a couple of months back and it is unbelievable how my life really has took a different turn in just this short time. Yes not healed but significantly improved. Life looks a lot better now. So yeah. You could definitely try this option. Otherwise you can try meditation and yoga. It calms you down and get that optimism inside you.
  5. This could be because of your medications. You can try contacting your doctor about it. Maybe change of medication can help. Another solution could be a dog. Hear me out a dog actually helps calm you down as a person. So yeah you could try that.
  6. Both these words scare the hell out of me. Although, I haven’t been through it I have seen people battling it. So I know it can be tough. Well, there is a brilliant solution that works wonders in fighting depression and anxiety. Get an emotional support animal. You might be confused but I have seen numerous cases where pet therapy helped people get out of the cages of depression. The reason this helps is because animals provide the needed emotional support that a depressed person needs. It can be an ideal companion you need in life. You can play, go for walks and just do lots of stuff with your pet. It just depends upon you. If you’re going through depression or anxiety, you can contact an ESA doctor. This might be a psychiatrist, therapist or any mental health expert. The doctor can evaluate your health condition and inform you about the benefits of keeping a pet for yourself. He can provide you with an ESA letter which gives you the authority to keep your pet with you without legal restrictions. Like if you have a dog, you can get it registered as an emotional support dog. The process is pretty simple. So, battling anxiety and depression is not an uphill task. You just need the right method of escape. And, animals provide that. Spend time with them and you’ll know that they provide exactly what you need.
  7. Hey rattler actually no. not right now. Have had many. But right now i am good with a dog.
  8. Thank you everyone. Honestly i want to share this with you. Its just been a week and i honestly feel that this is helping. I dont know where my time goes when i am with him. And also he is now known as “Oreo” I know its not much time to actually know about the improvement, but this week has been more happening than i dont remember when. Anyways you guys should get one too. You will love it!
  9. My doctors says that my pug helps manage my condition. He suggested me to get an ESA letter. Should i get it? Is it of any help? Can my dog really help me? I am confused. Can anyone please tell me and if possible share any examples.
  10. Thank you all for your kind words. I got a terrier today. He peed on the way home but somehow i wasn't angry at him.
  11. I have suffered from PTSD most of my life. Although, I might be laughing right now while thinking all those experiences. But, things were similar to hell during the time I was first diagnosed with PTSD. Although, things are going a bit okay. But, I am afraid I might lose onto many things because of my condition. Some days back, a friend of mine suggested going for an emotional support dog. But, I am confused. Should I go for one? Or depend on medications for managing my condition. Can anyone help?
  12. Thank you. Yeah got a terrier. Havent tried those bath salts. Will get them too. Thank you for the help.
  13. Yeah. chickenmama will try meditation as well. Thank you for the suggestion. Honestly have been trying to do that for quite long time it just gets difficult. But yes it is good so yeah. Dogs yes i am thinking to give them a try as well. Have been reading about it myself. I like dogs so it would be win win. I have contacted a shelter will visit them this week. Any breed suggestions?
  14. Tried so many medicines nothing seemed to work. It's about 3 years now that I have been suffering from anxiety and sleeping disorder. Tried all most all therapies but sleep just doesnt come to me. I just dont know what to do. My sister has been pushing me to get a dog. I dont know i searched on the internet, it does say that they do help. But i am just confused. Should i consider getting a dog? Can anyone share their experience?
