I understand the hardships and discouragement a chronic disease can have a toll on a person. At twelve years old I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. I suffered year after year with harsh limitations and chronic pain.
As my diseased progressed, my inspiration for a healthy life slowly dissolved. After each surgery and each ER visit and traumatic medical experiences my encouragement to live the life I wanted seemed to be as meaningless at the gum suck under a table; disgustingly out of place.
After my surgery in April 2011, being on the brink of death, I finally was able to see that although I may be alive, I certainly was not living. It was time to make a change. My first step to living, as silly as it seemed, was adopting a puppy named Rosie. My little puppy raised me out of the reality I created over the past decade. My sweet Rosie reminded me of my purpose: helping others. At the time I did not know, but by letting this puppy into my life I was in the making of a beautiful relationship and discovery. Rosie guided me on this journey and together we found our purpose.
Why I'm so
I trained Rosie to be my service dog. Although I did not know of anyone who had a service dog to help with Crohn’s Disease, I knew Rosie would become the trendsetter! I was able to train Rosie with multiple skills as the eager learner she became: picking up and carrying items, opening and closing doors, giving me balance, detecting ostomy leaks, and finding help. When my disease wanted to bubble to the surface, through allergic reactions or upcoming surgeries, Rosie was there to help. I saw as I trained this little 38lb mutt I saw her personality blossomed as her desire to work became even more clear.
Rosie taught me to always live in my joy and live with just as much passion and love as she does. Training Rosie evolved into my new and improved mission in life.
Helping others live in their joy with the help of a furry companion is an amazing gift I am honored to offer. I have witnessed others like me; those with Crohn’s Disease, an ostomy or any life-limiting condition, struggle through life as I did. Through my experience of Crohn’s and trapped in a world of chronic pain, I created a sad reality that I was not worth being helped or deserved my own happiness.
Having a service dog dissolved that reality I lived for and reminded me to thrive, not just survive.
