Just a quick post!
I am taking out Rosie for the night time 'nature calls' before bed. I came to a realization regarding my recent breakdown, thanks Rosie!
My friend and mentor from West Coast Assistance Teams, Sharon, had asked me a question. "Did you take your medicines late?". I did. Today I did too. My personal medication can cause nasty side effects and very ill feelings in a matter of hours if not taken on time.
I have recently bought some glucosamine for Rosie and put the container in her food dish, so I would not forget to give her her pill. This is her food dish that she brings my morning medicines to me in, so I do not forget my meds! That is her task. That little change in schedule caused me to forget my meds!
Rosie still alerts till I get up, or licks my face for special attention! Thank you Rosie for keeping me stable, and thank you Sharon for bringing to my attention the special details that a service dog is dedicated too.
Everyone matters, SO MUCH! Every person has some unique personality and skill to help our world. Our world needs all our people to connect and help each other. The people with the most challenges are the ones who care the most. I do.
