I miss my dogs,...been several years,...I just work too many darn hours and am rarely home. But you're right,... somehow your dog seems to have the most amount of empathy and concern for you when you are lonely or the people around you seem to be shallow and unempathetic in those moments. As soon as I retire, I will be looking forward to getting another pup.My dogs. And listening to music.
Yeah, I can’t remember the last time I had an actual meltdown, but I have an anxiety attack at least a few times a week :/Thankfully I rarely get angry or have meltdowns anymore, but anxiety attacks in response to perceived danger are pretty standard for me. Isolating and engaging in special interests helps, but it feels a bit maladaptive for some reason.
She probably appreciates you for doing so. People with Aspergers or Autism like to vent to others for validation and support (like me) and if i were her, i would be cheered up as well. Having friends to ask for help (especially those who are kind to you) are super important for all of usI tried to vent to one person. It was too much for them. I felt bad about it. I really miss that person. But I think stress caused me to push them away. It's good you have friends that help out. My friend had to vent last night. I was happy that she felt comfortable talking to me for support. I hoped l cheered her up.
