Aww, I haven't read the whole thread, just the last few posts along with the first few.

At least you figured out that its NOT Rogan that caused this. Thats sort of a good thing!!
I'm glad that you are seeking help for this. That is defiantely a first step

No worries you'll pull through this!

I hope you're right - still keep thinking that if i hadn't got the dog then it wouldnt have happened but I know that i need to look forward now as I can't change what has already happened

Just take it one day at a time. I suffer from anxieties and know how you feel. My anxieties we not too bad when we got our first dog, Kassie, though I did feel quite anxious when we first got her. The thought of her relying on me for everything and for me wanting to be a good dog owner was scary. Once she got older and trained the anxieties went away and now 3 dogs later it's not a problem what so ever. You may not see it right now but I'm confident that with time you'll bond with your pup and this feeling you're experiencing will be in the past. I commend you for working with it and seeking help. Working with what triggers your anxieties is the best thing to do, if you try to push the trigger away it will only manifest in other triggers.

I guess at this point it would do not good to give up the pup. You would only feel unhappy and guilty for the kids which would make your existing depression that much worse. You are right to not look back at what might have been. Backpeddling never helps

I know that certain things can trigger depression as I have had this happen to me at different times in my life. Moving to the middle of nowhere and being two and a half hours away from my son has been one of them.Needless to say we are moving closer to him soon as our house sells

At least I know what triggered my depression this time which makes it a little easier to fix. Your depression was probably triggered by the dog but it isnt really the dog itself but maybe what it represents to your uncouncious mind.

Councilling would help you immensely to find out what that is .I have heard hypnotherapy is good too.

Actually the dog might help you through it as dogs are used for therapy and such for many people.They are brought into homes where elderly people are lonely and feeling isolated. They lower BP when petted and it does help to care for them as it takes you out of yourself a bit.

Taking them for a walk gets you out of the house and walking is good exercise which helps with depression

They love unconditionally as well.

You have people on here as well that are always ready to help and offer friendship so know help and support are as close as your cp

All the best to you. I bet your pup is adorable too.

Thank you so much - I have put a picture onto my profile but it doesn't seem to be coming on to my posts ???

Hopefully the counsellor will get in touch with me in the next couple of days and then I can make some progress

I know you aren't expecting things to change overnight, but you have identified that you have a problem and that is a good step. Don't look at it like, "tomorrow when I wake up things will be cotton candy clouds and bubble gum kisses" so that when you wake up and still feel shitty you don't sink even worse.

Things are much the same at the mo, my mum and dad are here at the mo as my husband isn't home til later this evening. I'm still trying to get my head around thinking that it isn't the puppy thats the cause of the problem - once I can do that I think i will be getting somewhere

Thanks for all the thoughts and messages of support from everyone
