You certainly do have people who care. And I'm speaking from experience. It's not rhetorical.
The kind folks here have helped me out, and continue to do so, from some scary and dark places,...from places of confusion. What makes HW feel like home is because you're sharing -- not with strangers who read a book or took a class -- but with people who are going through similar things.
We come from a place of compassion and understanding. We "get it," and in turn, we "get you!"
I'd like to comment on Linds's statement about your service dog. First, this is theft, regardless. Second, I do believe filing a report is vital to protect both you and your pup and get your doggie back home to you. Those actions are contributing to disabling you and causing pain and suffering.
Your feelings are quite legitimate. Protect yourself. We're here for you.
My time for tears will be at my Victory...not at the start of the War. ~~Vickie
