I am struggling with the VA right now with my PTSD Service Dog...they are waiting on a 'ruling' that does not reflect the current Title 38 Section 1714, Public Law 2009. Hopefully they will get their act together soon!

God bless and let's hope they do!! It is LONG OVERDUE!!! Thank you so much for your service and sacrifice. I am the mother of a son who committed suicide because of PTSD. He served in Iraq in 2003/2004. I pray you will do everything you can to take care of yourself!

Ramon J. Montoya I replied with an answer...but it looks like they deleted it. Guess we are to just sign the petition and not inform people about whats really going on. I'll post on my WWP Discussion: PTSD Service Dog what I originally had here.

Ya think? I've always stuck by my theory...that a spiritual and/or a trustworthy connection, is far better than anything clinical.

I have read a book called Until Tuesday, by Luis Carlos Montalvan. This just shows you that we need something in place for our veterans. He was unable to bring his service dog on public transportation in NY.

Read the book see what our Countrey and leaders are really.

They are not mans best friend for no reason. Dog's have always been a source for comfort and friendship since I was a kid. Especially now when it comes to my PTSD. At times it feels like my dog is the only one who understands me. Even when I don't she does.

I do suffer from PTSD having served in Vietnam as a grunt. I suffered a great deal until someone gave me a pup. I now have three and they keep me interested in life.

My Service Dog, Ricky, seems to know when I am starting to have a panic attack, and comes to me to have me pet him and won't leave my side. Usually when I see that happen now I check myself and say, "Am I getting stressed about something?" and 100% of the time he has been right and either helped me avoid having an anxiety attack or greatly reduced it. It has helped me not have to take so many drugs that cause me to feel like a zombie, and besides that he is a preventative measure, whereas...

My Service Dog, Ricky, seems to know when I am starting to have a panic attack, and comes to me to have me pet him and won't leave my side. Usually when I see that happen now I check myself and say, "Am I getting stressed about something?" and 100% of the time he has been right and either helped me avoid having an anxiety attack or greatly reduced it. It has helped me not have to take so many drugs that cause me to feel like a zombie, and besides that he is a preventative measure, whereas those I take once I am into my full blown anxiety attack and they take a while to work and usually knock me out. At least with him, I can drive, with the drugs I can't. And since he is a registered service animal I can take him with me anywhere, to the store, restaurant, doctors office, you name it. He is not a pet, he is a working animal and he takes his job very seriously. He has been such a blessing and a God send for me. I would totally be agoraphobic by now if I didn't have him. Petting him also helps lower my blood pressure to where I have been able to back off my high blood pressure medicine considerably.
