I've adopted a puppy.
His name is Mason James, and I love him.
After recently being diagnosed with PTSD stemming from the traumatic abusive events from my childhood, I delved into research about overcoming it.
The obvious answer is therapy which I am getting and using to overcome this frustrating disorder. Another great solution for PTSD is to get a dog. When you have PTSD you randomly have flashbacks or anxiety about events of trauma that occurred from your past. Dogs are supposed to calm you down or give you relief during those awful times.
Although that is probably true for most people ....
