Hey everyone! I am just starting here and I really need advice. I've only had one dog before in my life. She recently passed away and I was devastated, and I felt like getting a new dog would help. So, after a lot of research and money spent, I adopted a puppy. The difference this time is that it's not my family's dog, it's MY dog. I have struggled with anxiety and depression for as long as I can remember, but I can't even describe how bad it's gotten since bringing him home two weeks ago. I'm crying constantly and I think about never coming home. He's not that bad of a puppy, he does the normal puppy things but I expected that. I just don't know if I was ready for this.
