I cant tell you how much my new puppy has helped both my wife and i. BTW we got a bernese mtn dog, at 5 months he is 63 lbs. LOL LOL LOL The puppy has done wonders for my depressions, just the sight of him brings joy to my heart, and i keep videos and pictures on my phone so when i am feeling down i can watch them and feel good. My wife and i have both had our lives brightened in different ways. (she has her own depression problems.)
Hope you are feeling better and if you need to talk, just drop a post here.
