You've found the best place for friends, for sure. I can relate. After 3 months of 3 antibiotics, and high dose prednisone tapers, I feel like a bloated toad on anabolics. I am sorry you've been through such awful times. I have two little schnoodle mutts, and a cat. I have been so grateful for pet therapy. Trying an antidepressant and getting a little dog AND a kitten are my recommendations. Wee wee pad and crate training helped me alot. I can't walk my dogs, but a small fenced area off my back door allows me to let them out to potty. I am sorry about your budget, I am blessed by SSD and a pension, medicare starts in Dec. All our lives have a purpose and a reason. Hugs your way, and if you are close enough, I will bring you a kitten, litter box, flea med and catnip mouse!
hugs and prayers your way,
God knows, even if I don't....
