Stressed Out? Get a Pet!
My sister's been going through some tough times and depression and anxiety finally weaseled its ugly head into her emotional state of being. Kind of like when your immune system is compromised a simple cold virus will take ya down to chinatown. She didn't want to succumb to anti-depressants so I got online to find some alternatives. The one that seemed to be the most impressive seemed like one she would never go for. I came across a few articles suggesting a sad and lonely human can find happiness through the unconditional love of a pet. Problem is my sister has never been a "pet person."
So what do I do? I push a pet on her anyway. Now I'm not suggesting by any means everyone do this because this is one thing that could backfire and then the poor pet may still be without a home. That would be cruel. But I knew that if she didn't accept it I would just keep the little dog myself and give her a good home whether I needed to be in that position or not.
It turns out the little half Shih Tzu half Lhasa Apso was the best thing to ever happen to her. I don't want to sound overly dramatic but I seriously think that little sweet puppy saved my sister's life. Linda not only feels better, but she looks better as well. She has become much more outgoing and at the same time so much more relaxed. She's the Linda I used to know. It's like seeing a complete transformation in a person. Everything seemed to change in her when she was so down. She gained weight and didn't care so much for her appearance. Now she looks like a million bucks. She loves taking care of herself now and has a renewed sense of excitement when it comes to beauty and well-being. I've been staying with her a while and she keeps getting into my skincare products. I'm wondering if the dog cost more or less than the amount of products she's used up! But it's been so well worth it. She's obsessed with the Kinerase Ultimate Regimen Kit and Kinerase Multi-Vitamin Minerals and Nutrients Supplements. I have never seen her look more gorgeous. She's now happy and beautiful from both the inside and out!
