Dogs. After having contributed over 50 articles to The Mighty since 2015, I am surprised I have never written a piece about my dogs and their role in my mental health recovery.

Today is the day I change that. I have had four dogs in my family since I was born; currently, I take care of the family dog we got when I was in high school, as well as my own dog that was gifted to me when I graduated college after a tumultuous path through my undergrad.

Unfortunately, the challenges did not end there, even if having the dogs as a part of my responsibility was ultimately helpful to my mental health.
