My world 🌎

I’m So #lucky to have this wee cute one πŸ‘‡πŸ½in my life life πŸ• . Probably Not many of you will know this , but the one πŸ‘‡πŸ½ & only reason why i got a dog was for the sole purpose of a #therapydog 🐢, not just because i simply wanted a dog , the idea just came to me in bed 1 day , while I was deteriorating with Ill mental health very rapidly at home while pregnant, I bought her on my Birthday nearly 3 years ago , we all know that stroking a pet makes us feel good , gives us that warm fuzzy feeling perhaps, Preliminary results from a study show that a few minutes of stroking our pet dog prompts a release of a number of “feel good” hormones in humans, including serotonin, prolactin and oxytocin , & even if your not usually a massive animal lover , they can provide a fantastic calming distraction for individuals suffering from #depression, #bpd , & more increasingly equine therapy has been proven to be very beneficial to those with a diagnosis of #ADHD & severe learning difficulties, & in particular #autism , & although she tests me @ times , as she likes to whine a lot at time , & she often takes forever to go for a 🚽 it was the best decision I’ve ever made πŸ•πŸ˜€πŸ‘ŒπŸΎ

My Amazing Therapy Dog :)

I couldn’t live without my therapy dog Molly , she is amazing & gets me through every single difficult day😊

I initially wasn’t going to get a dog but I’m animal mad anyway , & when the idea soon came to me that a dog would.be beneficial to my mental Health , the idea was sold to my partner πŸ™‚Β

The PLACEBO AffectΒ 

Medications aren’t always the answer 

 And this is what i tell everyone on medication , but do they listen , NO . Their is such a vast range of medications  used to treat mental illnesses & disorders , that even the wonderful Dr treating you can often find it tricky to find the right type of medication suitable for u & your condition. What works for one person with Anxiety, can so not work for the next person & so on . Their is simply no straightforward pill cures everything answer . 

And not forgetting what most people don’t even bother 2 read The small print, that annoying leaflet you get in your Annoying bloody pill box , & their is where outweighing the benefits & risks of taking your Medication , becomes such a minefield. 

Here’s 1 quick example : Is the medication you are taking for your Anxiety (eg Lorazepam) really helping your anxiety, when said listed Side Effects r heart palpitations which is a sign of Anxiety, which is why you started taking the Medication in the 1st place. 

Of course everyone is so Different,but it’s merely just food for thought πŸ™‚ 

Antideppressants will begin to stop working after y’ve  been taking them for a while because your brain gets so accustomed to them , which can then be something called the placebo affect & if your not treating the underlying cause with a combination of counselling & medication , or counselling then medication , then really what is the point as when you come off your medication of course your problems are still their & its a vicious cycle πŸ™‚
