In 2015, I started riding around the US to bring awareness to those with invisible illness and the use of service animal.
I was diagnosed with PTSD almost 6 years ago. Thankfully, I finally accepted that my friends were right, I did need help. Years of counseling and learning how to integrate a service dog into my life was the answer that I came up with to make my life functional again.
Without a service animal in my life I’m sure thing would be considerably different and most assuredly not in a good way. There would be stacks of medication, endless counseling session and the end result would be that I probably wouldn’t be any better off that I was before.
