Stephanie and Fly
Meet Stephanie and her young Border Collie, Fly. Stephanie suffers from PTSD and has anxiety attacks.
Most important thing to me is my son. He’s only six years old and unfortunately has adopted the role as a service person to me. From calling 911 to telling people in a grocery store to back away from me while I have an anxiety attack, he has gladly accepted the role as I reluctantly watch with no choice. Seeing how my son has seen Fly react to my attacks, I have noticed a change in him. He understands it’s her job, backs off, and as a result has less stress.
From comfort in petting Fly when I have high anxiety to the nudging, licking and pawing Fly does during an attack, she makes my life much more manageable. There really aren’t words to express my gratitude for you and your organization.”
