PTSD has robbed me of my authenticity and my ability to thrive.

I was getting maybe three hours of sleep at night.

I was isolating because I was afraid of what was outside.

The idea that I liked about getting a service dog was having a battle buddy; somebody I could 110% trust.

PAVE does a lot of one-on-one attention with you and the dog.

But I think the biggest thing he does for me is he’s here and he alerts me when I have any type of PTSD reaction.

Since sage came into my life, I’m taking three less medications.

I was getting about three hours of sleep at night. Now, it’s between five and seven.

Paws Assisting Veterans is so important. I would tell other veterans who struggle with PTSD, don’t quit. Don’t give up.
