They aren't completely mine but I have 2 cats, Mischief and Rascal, and a dog (beagle/lab) named Max. All of them are rescues and I love them very much. I never liked dogs until we got Max. He's the sweetest dog.

I have one dog right now, love her to death she's so human like it's uncanny. She's not fully mine because I'm horrible with taking care of animals (all pets that have been fully mine have died) but I still like to think of her as mine since it was my need for a companion (can't keep a friendship to save my life, apparently) that originally brought her to our house.

I had a kitty and a doggie for years. Once they passed we moved to a place where we can't have pets. I have to stay out of the pet stores and adoption places. I went into Pet Smart last month and almost took home 3 kittys. The first one reached out to me with his little paw and said "Hey, come over here and take me home" I mean he didnt really say it, but you know what I mean.

I have 2 dogs, Abby and Fred, and a cat called Kitty. I adore them all. Abby is very tuned in to my emotions and has often come to me when I'm bawling my eyes out and either lay down on my bed beside me or put her head in my lap. She's a sweet heart!

I've always had at least one pet since I was little (usually a cat, but also dogs and a bunny and a leopard gecko). I currently have 3 cats and a bearded dragon. My cats are so important to me. They provide great comfort and can really help me to calm down and relax when I'm feeling out of sorts. I don't know what I'd do without them.

I had a dog for six years called Abel, and before that I had another dog called Falco, who was with us for 12 years. I've grown up with dogs. Cats, not so much - not really a cat person.

I have my wonderful goldendoodle Kaya. She's amazing. She head butts me when I start to zone out too much, she licks my tears off when I cry, she curls up on my feet when I'm cold, she jumps up and gives me hugs when I'm feeling playful. And she gives me another reason to get out of the house everyday. I don't know what I'd do without her.

I keep aquariums and I would like to start saltwater in the near future. Some people keep dozens of aquariums with happy and healthy occupants, but I've found that when I'm down I can just barely manage the minimum level of care of the two tanks I have going right now. I am planning a third tank setup of either a group of female bettas or 2-3 bettas in a ten gallon divided 2-3 ways. Then I'd have to wait and see if I can handle that load and if I'm in a good enough place to begin saltwater as well as move on to larger aquariums at that point.

I have only one pet, my cat, Squee. He's 11. I'm allergic to cats, but I take allergy pills so I can keep him. I like to have cats because when I'm depressed I can provide the minimum maintenance (food and litterbox) and he'll be fine even though I don't feel like playing with him. Of course I feel guilty when I feel like I'm ignoring him, which is just another thing to feel bad about when I'm depressed, but I think I realistically wouldn't be able to manage a higher-maintenance pet. Cats are pretty independent.

Plus, even when I'm feeling down he does sometimes make me feel a bit better, like when he flops down on my feet and does his silly purring meows, or chases a bug around the house, etc.

      Hi,
      Have any of you had or have read of gabapentin being of use as an adjunctive therapy for people with treatment resistant depression/anxiety/bipolar?
      I have been doing research and some sources say it helps, others say there is no strong clinical proof. I think a lot of the conflicting reports I have seen has to do with it simply not being studied en mass.
      Any advice/experiences regarding this? If so, what was your dosing?
      Thank you!

      I need some energy, some motivation, some good manic voodoo. Why cant i have that without losing my damn fool mind.?
      Hasnt anyone looked at that? Why must I be either lazy and lethargic or 90mph? Im always tired, always fatigued. I need to know how to get my mojo going WITHOUT my kookoo taging along every time. I cant believe nobody has studied this.

      This is a long shot, but I figure I can't be the only one who has ever had this thought. Is there a way to induce a state that includes the productivity/happiness of mania - without all the extra bullshit? 😅
      Mania is better than any drug, the euphoria is incomparable. Every time I skip a few days of sleep, feel an increase in energy, or anything that might be the beginning of an episode, I think - ''Please let this be the onset of the best feeling in the world. I can't do this shit anymore''. I feel so guilty admitting to that, because I know that being manic and being functional are generally not compatible. I also don't ever want to end up in hospital again, because that never fails to be a de-humanizing experience.
      I have not had any symptoms of mania since my last hospital admission, three whole years ago. It was the first and only manic episode that I've ever had, and it lasted for about three months. I feel like I could have avoided hospital completely if I had experienced mania without the accompanying psychosis. If I could just achieve that level of elation without:
      rapid speech word-salad delusional beliefs dangerously impulsive acts (e.g. jumping out of a car on the highway because the sky looked beautiful and I wanted a loser look) I look back on those ugly symptoms and I could never cope with them now. I go to college full-time, I work, and I have so much to lose if I lost the ability to communicate with others and behave safely. On the other hand - my life just feels so damn gray and stagnant; I miss feeling invincible.
