DOG Name: STEWART
Team Since: 2011
My best friend STEWART and I have been together since 2011. I am a former Police Officer and First Responder. I suffer from PTSD, and Bipolar Disorder If it was not for STEWART, I would not get up every day and would have a hard time leaving my house.
STEWART performs many tasks that help me make it through the day. STEWART helps keep me calm and grounded, which mitigates many of my PTSD symptoms. This includes anxiety, paranoia, flashbacks, depression, nightmares, and many other symptoms. STEWART also assists me by retrieving items which is very helpful since having a stroke.
STEWART and I learn something from each other and love each other more and more each day.
