I am a first responder with an OSI (Occupational Stress Injury) which
has resulted in PTSD, depression and extreme anxiety. I have been off
work for over 2.5 years, have overcome addiction, and I am actively
participating in weekly therapy.
Extreme anxiety has left me hiding at home, terrified to go out. Even
simple things like shopping are impossible for me. This has left me
unable to attend and participate in family events, trips and even
prevents me from the hobbies that I used to be passionate about.
I look forward to the support of a service dog to improve my quality
of life. A service dog will assist me to be more active in my daily
life, to once again attend events and activities with my family
members and allow me to regain my freedom.
Thank you for giving to Kingston 4 Paws Service Dogs. With their help
I will receive a very supportive new friend.
