Please go visit my GoFundMe campaign and help me get a service dog!
My therapist and GP recommended I get a service animal, and I think a dog is the best choice. An adopted dog, from a shelter. I may even get a dog who is also neuroatypical and disabled, so we can care for each other.
The dog will not only help me when I’m bedridden by bringing me my pills, books, phone, blankets, etc; it will also provide emotional support. I can pet and snuggle it if I have an anxiety or panic attack. I can take it with me in public to prevent becomng overstimulated. It will help me socialize. It will distract me from pain. It can go get help if I have a seizure, or attempt suicide, or overdose. It will give me a responsibility- a reason to get out of bed, to take walks, to go outside.
Currently I am waiting to receive my disability checks. I will be getting $750.00 a month, which is more than enough for me to care for the dog, get special training, take it to the vet, provide a wholesome diet, etc.
I know GoFundMe doesn’t allow donations under $5, so if you want to donate less than that, my PayPal email is email@example.com!
If you can’t donate, please reblog this to signal boost it to your followers! I know, I ask for a lot of things. However, you’re under no obligation to help me, especially if you’ve done so before. I am so, so grateful for all the help this site has given me over the years, no doubt I would be dead or homeless, or both, without y’all. I would never ask for something I didn’t need, and I would never extort anyone.
I love you all dearly.
