$275 of $6,000 goal

Created February 18, 2018
Diagnosis
I am Brandon, I'm diagnosed with OCD, General and Social anxiety, Depression, and recently been diagnosed so I am put on the Autism Spectrum.
Goal
I am trying to raise funds to adopt a dog that'll go through training to gain the special skills to help with my illnesses. The cost for a trained dog is relative towards the skills needed. I have spoken with a company who trains Psych. Service dogs, and they can help once I have the funds. I will also need the funds for dog food, treats, toys, and the medical bills.
Recent History
I have admitted myself to the Psych ward twice because of being suicidal and I had a plan, part of the plan I put into action in which I failed. I then admitted myself to a Mental Illness treatment center for 5 months, and from there I moved to where I live now which is a mental health board and lodge.
Why I'd Like A Service Dog..
Ever since I was a child my parents gave me a puppy that was always by my side. Her name was Sasha, and if I was on the couch or sleeping she was next to me. She passed away while I was in High School.
History of Bad Luck..
The summer before Freshman year of High School. I was in the hospital for 3 whole months. I was eventually diagnosed with Lyme encephalitis after weeks of being poked, tested, and 5 spinal taps later. I started my Freshman year pale, and with a pic line from my arm to my heart for antibiotics.
Freshman year of college I started in a walker and a pic line for antibiotics due to another infection. Whenever I would stand for a long period my ankle would swell and be extremely painful. I had surgery to remove an extra piece of bone, and while I was recovering they found an infection. I had to have another surgery to remove the infection, so now I have arthritis which gets painful whenever I stand.
Blog my new life not running from my illnesses..
I have started to blog to help with working on researching,  posting movie reviews, and mostly blogging my life with a Service dog and the stigma that goes with it. I'm a movie buff, and I enjoy researching like an investigative journalist about social, economical, and political issues. My sister recommended that I start my own blog. This way I can blog about my service dog, movies, TV shows, etc.

Everyone! Big news. So I moved to a one bedroom apartment, and I adopted Cheyenne. I'm so excited for these big changes.
Now comes the hard part to train. She knows to listen to whistle, her name, she sits, lays, and handshake. Now to train for my mental health.
