Dog spelled backwards is God. Hazel is 100% a God thing. She is my therapy dog & I am her therapy human.
My therapist urged me for a long time to get a dog for multiple reasons surrounding my needs as far as the benefits for me mentally, emotionally and physically. I kinda thought that there was no way that a dog could help with my strong feelings surrounding my struggle with #depression & #isolation & #anxiety #chronicpain from #trigeminalneuralgia & #anesthesiadolorosa &
#glossopharyngealneuralgia & #genticulateneuralgia & #occipitalneuralgia . That’s a lot of pressure for a human let alone a dog.
And then we did it. We took a risk. And y’all know how much Hazel has been healing each of us. She’s a unicorn in dog form. Basically💁🏼♀️ And shit.
She’s magic is a lot of mess. She turns a lot of shitty into shiny-ish. She doesn’t take my pain but she instinctively knows when I am struggling more and soothes me closer snuggles. She lets me know I’m not alone when I feel dreadfully alone. She shifts my focus with playing fetch and my favorite, picking up shit. 🙄
If you just look at her face, you see she was handpicked by God for me, for us. Thank you, Jesus!
She’s getting spayed today. The separation was hard. Please keep her in your prayers. I know she’ll be fine and yet, #dogmom . And I miss her. I’m in a great deal of pain my self. Now that we have her, the struggle is real without her. Come on Rosemary, pull it together. Still, dog mom. Hazel’s mom.
My cats are loving the freedom without her. And my free lap.
Dog spelled backwards is God. God is so good.
Be good to you. Have a day. Any day you choose. I’m going to be horizontal & wait for Hazel while watching Netflix with coffee. And shit.
I love you. I love me. I love us. .
