My Dog Takes Anti-Anxiety Meds — And So Do I

Trigger warning: this post discusses anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, and eating disorders. Also, I am not a vet, behaviorist, trainer, or mental health professional. This post merely reflects my personal journey as I remember it.

There has been a lot of buzz in the media recently about mental health, with multiple high-profile suicides in recent days. In the following hours, several of my pet blogging friends posted their own stories in an attempt to bring eyes to an important topic and to make it easier for others to speak up if they need help.

I thought — we’re bloggers! Let’s do what we do best: spread the word about things that need to be discussed. Several of us are speaking out about our own mental health struggles or about mental health in general. Their posts will be linked up at the end, but in the meantime, I have a story to tell.
