Pet therapy in Bipolar

Pet therapy,in the bipolar treatment process.This is Lucy my mini dachshunds birthday.
She is 9lbs and sweet as can be.her traits are much like mine spoiled and fussy.
If you could see them now Lucy and Luke are on the couch spread out with there paws in the air sound asleep,it is just the cutest sight and makes me smile,not to mention they are absolutely peaceful and quite.
When I got the dogs,I was just coming off medications,Lucy always slept with me and would alert me if someone was at the door,or there where noise in the vincity.as most of my days then,where spent in bed.with the odd appointments,I could never stray to far or to long as she would be missing me.I got Luke as a Christmas present for her and myself.he was just to darn handsome.and with 2 days before Christmas he needed a home.Little did I know.how much of an impact these dogs would have on my well-being.They would cuddle and lick me when I over-slept,they would nudge me to take them for a walk when really all I wanted to do was stay in bed.but I could not
off we went to explore,meet and greet people.play with children at the daycare.
Then this morning I have been walking like crazy twice a day for an hour or more
however now I really believe they have been walking me all this time.
which lead me to think about pet therapy and service dogs for Bipolar.well much to my surprise there was alot of information on this very topic.However I did not explore this option for my own benefit.as I read on disability rights and service dogs.I require a letter from the doctor and I can take the dogs to public places
as most of my time is spent in or walking and I have been wanting to get things done.
For example shopping,dentist and according to the law,service dogs are welcomed in public places, an interesting theory which I will discuss with the doctor.they keep me calm,watch what I am doing and where I am going.
So there could be some validity to the service dog option and I will let you know what progress I make with the doctor and therapist.
Thanks for reading and please let me know if you have a pet and the benefits to your Bipolar or Mental Health

Will the real me stand up


Will the real me stand up! this change in lifestyle,certainly is agreeing with me.
I have simplified my life,reduced stress,and am living at the Marriott,with all the conveniences I could ask for,housekeeping,breakfast and dinner served in the dining room,included in the cost of the suite,last night I cooked a dinner of spinach and fish.my favorite.I have been focused on my wellness,which includes daily walks twice a day for at least an hour,swimming for 1/2 hour and a sauna.I have a jacuzzi bath,an afternoon nap,nutrition and mindful meditation.This is the fourth day I have been consistent in my efforts,the results are good mood,laughter,sleep.wake pattern has changed significantly I am awake from 5am-6am,
and in bed sleeping before midnight.last night I was sleeping at 9pm the last time I had such results when I was focused on my own wellness.I have added social 2x per week,as well as working.these are all beneficial to my overall health and well being.
I wonder how long this will last? and if I can maintain this pace without the crash.
I am monitoring my energy levels and moods,so far so good.I have also pushed myself to answer the phone,something I rarely do,and say hello to everyone I pass along in my day.talking to those that wish to talk.I also have started the day with shower and dress,full make-up and all.this helps me to put my best foot forward each day.
I just wanted to share what works for me..It is a challenge as I treat the illness
without meds.Some days are better than others.For now I'll take what I can get,while increasing my capacity to receive.
Have a blessed day in wellness,if your not there yet,try one of the above suggestion and see if it works for you.
