It’s not the most scientific point I’m going to make, but I believe pets are great for pain relief. My dog Harley has been with me over the past 4 years of botched surgeries, detox from ALL the pills in the world and slowly learning to walk and talk again. I cannot recommend highly enough that people find a pet to spend time with instead of being alone in pain.

This is just a quick introduction to what I call “pet therapy” and I will be doing much much more on this front as we explore alternative methods for dealing with blinding sensation that we don’t love otherwise known as chronic pain.
