Cat Therapy = Waiting For My Therapist

Hello, World!!! I have been so high anxiety that my therapist is coming to see me later on today. He is an amazing therapist. Part of the reason he is coming is the anxiety but the other is to meet my cat. Yes, he will have another clinician with him which is I think an awesome idea for ethical reasons. In fact he asked if his supervisor could come because she wants to meet Lil Gertie as well. They are also coming to make sure I am keeping my apartment clean which I am doing.

Lil Gertie has be quite helpful for me in regards to my Anxiety and PTSD symptoms. Its like she has a sixth sense of knowing when I am having and flashback and body memory. She comes up to me and snuggles with me. She woke me up from a nightmare by licking my nose. So she is very aware of what is going on with the PTSD side of things. I love Lil Gertie so much.  She knows when to help me.

Thanks so much for reading. It means a great deal to me. Have a great day to everyone of you. Peace Out, World!!!


Lil Gertie, My Lil Fur Baby

Good Evening, World!!! I am enjoying the fact that I am a cat parent. Lil Gertie is quite entertaining. When she is not eating or napping she is at my side purring. She has been following me around like a lost little puppy when I am up moving around. Lil Gertie even sits at the door till I get home.

I am looking forward to telling my therapist about Lil Gertie tomorrow. I emailed him about her already and sent some pictures of her to him as well. I am so grateful that I got Lil Gertie as it has she has decreased my symptoms of my mental health diagnoses so soon after getting her. She is doing what she is suppose to be doing.

I need to get going. I am hungry and need to eat. Peace Out, World!!!


Spending Time With My Kitty

Hello, World!!! I went to the street fair in my neighborhood again today. I had a blast until my PTSD symptoms caused several panic attacks. I came home in tears and Lil Gertie came up to me and snuggled up with me. She is doing a wonderful job with helping me deal with my emotions.

Now that I am calmed down I can use other skills to help me deal with the unwanted left over emotions. One of the things I did was painted. I attempted to paint Lil Gertie but it didn’t come out the way I wanted it to. That’s okay because a friend of mine is going to help me learn how to paint a tad bit better.

Thank you for reading. Have a good evening, world!!!

Getting Excited

Good Morning, World!!! I am getting excited as I am planning on getting a cat today. The cat will be an Emotional Support Animal (ESA). Getting an ESA will help reduce the symptoms of my Anxiety, Depression and PTSD.

Having an animal of any kind has been proven to be helpful to reduce people’s symptoms’s of their mental health diagnosis. This is why my therapist has suggested and supported me getting an ESA. I can’t wait to tell him tomorrow about it as well as during our session on Tuesday.

Before I get the cat I have to go to the pet store and get more supplies for my new kitty. I already have food and litter. I just need a litter box, treats and toys. I also need to get a carrier for the cat.
