THE STORY:

Dear friends, family, and strangers, I was recently hospitalized here in VVMC's psych unit when I found, and still find, myself struggling and floundering with Complex PTSD and Anxiety Disorder from long term childhood trauma and abuse. It has gotten to the point where I no longer feel safe, have panic attacks before I even see all of your beautiful smiling faces, horrible nightmares every night with little to no sleep, and, due to a series of unfortunate events, even a suicide attempt (which thankfully failed). It has been running and occasionally ruining my life. To help with this, I have been prescribed a service dog to help me navigate through the stormy waters, along with allot of medication and therapy. I am planning to train this lovely canine to detect and alert to onsets of anxiety/panic attacks, interrupt and ground me during dissociations (basically I check out and daydream about bad things), crowd buffering, wake me from nightmares, take me to a safe person/exit at gatherings or the grocery store, and love the crap out of me! Needless to say, I have acquired a few medical bills (approx. $6000 worth!!!-ouch!!), and paying for this puppy is out of my reach. I am not asking you to pay my medical bills, though if you wanted to, I wouldn't argue to hard. But, I am asking for help in this life changing event. This dog would be a godsend and any help you can offer, even just 1 dollar, would put me $1 closer to my prayers. Thank for reading this and considering my plea. I love you all and would like to be around at least a little longer. Looooooove, Niki :)
