Hi Samantha,

Thank you for baring your soul to us like this. I wanted to reach out because I have some of the same mental and physical illnesses as you do. I have Agoraphobia, Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and Arthritis all through my body, especially my back.

My husband and I also have a lot of dogs. Some were rescued and some were born here and we kept them when no one else wanted them. We have seven dogs and that is all we can afford or handle but we love them like they are our children. We were never able to have children so our dogs are our furkids, lol.

Please know you have a friend in me. Thanks for writing this. Prayers to you and your husband and furkids.

I have been a professional writer for 14 years. I have a boyfriend and six dogs. Check out and subscribe: https://landing.mailerlite.com/webforms/landing/h7v3o7
