For years I have suffered from agoraphobia, depression and panic attacks. I lost the joy of life. The only thing that I still get joy from is my horses. Its amazing the impact they have had on my wellbeing and outlook. They give me something to get out of bed for and their need for sustanance and comfort gives me comfort and sustains me. They have brought hope back into my life and I thank God for them. My world revolve around their care and what they give back to me is pricless.
Just a note, I'm much better now :) I know thats more than 50 words.
