Smile Stella saved my life

I cant get enough hedgehogs! All I do is search pictures, videos and stories about hedgehogs any chance I get. I am all over this forum reading new posts and creeping the pictures and all I can think about during the day is my baby waiting for me at home and how much she has been renewing my feeling of purpose in life! I feel I'm starting to drive people crazy, but I honestly feel my Stella is helping me with my mental health. A year and a half ago i was diagnosed with disthymia disorder (a serious chronic depression) and just before i adooted stella i was very close to ending my life. As many people know with any kind of mental illness its a on going struggle not only with the feelings of hopelessness and motivation but the process of finding effective treatment. Be it medication, what kinds work and what dosages you require or therapy or even a combination. Its constant maintenance and work. For me it was antidepressants but i was sick and tired of the trial and error it took and was done. Until I got Stellaa! I feel like she has given me a purpose, i cant wait to get home and send time with her. Shes like a therapy dog that fits in your hands. I cant put to full words how important she is to me but im sure most of you understand what im trying to say. Shes just amazing lot of people think that "rodents", which they arent, cant respond or bond with you like dogs and cats can. I think we here can all agree that those people are 100% wrong. Hedgehogs have saved me and im so happy i have discovered these amazing creatures. Anyways thanks for letting me share id love to hear some of your stories too!
