My 2-year-old pit bull is probably my single greatest comfort, and he helps me tackle each new day just from being a source of unconditional love and companionship.

I take medication and used to go to therapy, but right now I am just trying to figure out how I want to tackle this.

My only advice is don’t be afraid. No matter what you are going through you CAN beat it.
I was so scared to admit that I needed help. I was ashamed to talk about it with my family. I was embarrassed when I would have panic attacks.

I am not ashamed and I refuse to ever be again. I don’t have this completely figured out, but I make it one day at a time.”
