I’m So #lucky to have this wee cute one 👇🏽in my life life 🐕 . Probably Not many of you will know this , but the one 👇🏽 & 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 🐕😀👌🏾
My amazing little therapy dog Molly , when I’m experiencing a manic episode getting out for some fresh air really brings my mania down a notch , being on such a natural high (experiencing mania) can be excitable at times, but when it’s uncontrollable it’s not so fun .

Selfie Sunday ….
Wow can’t believe I’ve got through this journey . A mad bipolar up&down ride while i was pregnant & how time flies my little girl will b 2 weeks old tomorrow 😊
I’ve almost made it 😊 this journey has been an amazing achievement for me , I didn’t think I’d get through it as well as i have done,considering how mentally ill I was last time- so il I couldn’t even hold my baby @birth & unfortunately she was removed straight away 😥 . But now just over 2 years later I’m WELL ,I’m STABLE & IM HAPPY, with the man of my dreams 👌
P.S If you put your mind to it you really can achieve anything 🙂
Love Becky&Bump 👶❤️👶

Exciting but scary times 🙂
Waiting for our baby girl 2 arrive soon, then straight to the mother & baby mental health unit in order to prevent our baby going into foster care. PATHETIC I know : that they have 2 judge me because of my mental health, just because I have a mental health doesn’t mean I won’t be as good a MUM as any 🙂
Love Becky & Bump….
