Sunday, April 20, 2008 -- 2:19 PM   I have not quite gone to the dogs -- yet. Thanks, in part, to those of you who left such positive comments in my journal, I am definitely leaning toward applying for a service/companion dog. In fact, I am trying to arrange my schedule so that I can go to the agency that has them the week after this.   Last night, and this morning, I spoke with some of the people who help me each day and told them what I was considering doing. With one exception, all of the responses were positive.   Today I am feeling somewhat down in the dumps. I cannot think of any special reason for this other than the fact that I just plain get that way at times. When I get in these moods, they usually last for only a day or two.   Tomorrow morning I am going to my mental health clinic to see the social worker who is now working with me. I like him a lot, and am very hopeful that he will be able to help me overcome most of my depression and anxiety.   Quotes for Success:   “Act as though it is impossible to fail.”   Anonymous
