recently i almost lost my love of my life & emotional support animal.. boop.
she is the most amazing soul & a registered therapy pup, she’s touched SO many lives. i’ve been the luckiest person solely bc of her. she is & has been my only reason to fight & press on through chronic illness.
suddenly she got SO sick, after thousands++ of dollars in tests & specialty vets she was diagnosed with cushings disease as well as diabetes, she also completely lost her sight within a week :(
so we’ve been learning together how to do 2x a day insulin shots & cushings meds & how to help her navigate the world without sight.
so, i have completely abandoned all of my medical or life needs to make sure i continue to do anything & everything possible to get her back to healthy.
she & i have always done one thing over all else: take care of each other.
but i have to say, what do you do when your support animal (& best friend in the universe) becomes the one who needs the most support? how do i maintain the level of care & medicine she needs without neglecting my own to such an extent i am in no condition to take care of either of us?
how to deal with THIS many chronic illnesses? how is this real life??
most exhausting soul crushing year ever, send good vibes & love
xo, kat n boop
