Hey My name is Christy, I'm in need of a hearing/psychiatric service dog to help enrich my quality of life. the dog will help me be able to get into society and with stand the enviroments around me. I have a hearing loss the will keep deteriorating as i age, I wear hearing aides to help me, but that slowly not able to help me, nor awake me up at night if there is a danger like someone breaking in, or starting a fire. I also have a mental illness: Borderline personality disorder, Anxiety, depression, identity disorder, suicidal ideation tendencies, dissociative and depresonalization disorder, ADD, and PTSD-Post trauma stress disorder.
With these i'm pretty isolated and unable to leave the house, and am no longer able to work and living on disabilty.
I was able to work for a short period of my life and did at a remote heli ski resort, at a hospital and residential facility
In the past 4 years I was in hospital for a year, than a group home for a year, than my own apartment for 2 years and now back home with my parents
A dog would help me gain indepedence, to be able to go back to school and eventually back to a work area safe for myself and the dog.
There is no medical fudning and disabilty does not cover any off the service to get a psychiatric/hearing service dog,
i'm desperately seeking a help option for me to minimize my visits into hospitalization settings and trying to build a life worth living.
I'd appriciate all the help and support I can get. I will pay it forward when i am able to and am finacially secure. posibly eve help advocate for others to get service dogs as well in the future and help educate those around us about mental illness and help eliminate stigma, thanks for your time and for reading this!
