About Alex Ferber Service Dog
I am a 20 year old creative writing major with a passion for animals. Being born three months premature at 27 weeks set me up for a rough start. Compared to many, I got off lucky. I’ve had anxiety my entire life that has been barely managed by medication and therapy. Recently, I was diagnosed with PTSD which has only added to my struggle to function.
I had to take a year off university to try to manage my health, and I’m excited to get back to college. I just can’t do it without a Service Dog. I’ve been trying to get one for years, and I’m very pleased to say that I’m finally moving forward in the process. With this dog, I can be independent. I can get up in the middle of the night to get a drink without fearing that there’s an intruder in the house. I won’t have to leave social events because I got too overwhelmed.
I’m ready to move on with my life and my recovery. I’m excited to go back to school, get my own apartment and get back to doing things I love.
