This lil sweet pea keeps me moving each and everyday #puppytherapy #puppylove #animalfanatics #mysunshine

This is me yesterday—relaxed, rosy-cheeked, and a bit bleary-eyed—after my first ever oncological massage at @sloankettering’s Integrative Medicine Center. My neighbor who’s a massage therapist in a hospital setting used to work there many years ago & recommended it. I coincidentally got paired with a massage therapist he knows & loves & used to work with. And my neighbor treated me to the massage. 💕✨ The massage therapist talked to me for a long time before the massage to discuss the details of my diagnosis & treatment, and asked what the main symptom was that I wanted relief from with massage. At this point, the main side effects I am experiencing from chemo are fatigue, sleeplessness, & very low immunity. But I told her that the main thing I wanted out of the massage was relaxation & stress reduction. My life completely changed on October 3rd when I was hospitalized & diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Ever since then I’ve been focusing on healing from cancer & managing my treatment every single day. And I just wanted to RELAX & do something really nice for myself. Immediately after leaving my massage, I met a 3-month-old Cavalier King Charles puppy in the street named Denver, which is where my Dad grew up, & when I bent down to pet it, it jumped right into my lap. So in addition to massage therapy, I got a little puppy therapy, too. ❤️🐶 #ovariancancer #fightingcancer #ovariancancerawareness #massage #selflove #selfcare #puppytherapy #community #loveandsupport #fighter #warrior #survivor

Ugh, we had rain this morning at 6:15am.... so after my quick walk with mommy I run to my bed and asked for a fresh hot towel. Thanks God, mommy keeps my towel on the radiator, so it's comfy....

1.11.19 Ducks. Today I discovered them. Today I developed a curious obsession with them. My human took me to the park right across the street from where we live and while I was frolicking around in the leaves, I noticed these things in the water but they were moving! My human told me about ducks and geese and says they probably don’t want to be our friends, but they’re just so dang interesting. It’s like they don’t think baths are the worst things in the whole wide world because they just spend so much time in there. I wonder why they don’t want to come up onto land and run around with me... • • • #goldendoodle #groodle #dog #dogstagram #dogsofinstagram #dogsofchampaign #dogsofchambana #dogsofillinois #uofi #uiuc #uiucdogs #campusdog #puppy #doglovers #love #doodles #doodlesofinstagram #puppytherapy #friends #school #playtime #nature #ducks #geese #leaves #puppies #paws

3.16.2018 - the day we brought Gabby home ⬆️ Many people do not know that my brother-in-law, Neil, is responsible for bringing Gabby into our lives. His love and care for me as a sister, transformed a period of pain, fear and disbelief into to one of abundant joy, laughter, love and gratitude. Neil has always been my kindred spirit & animal lover. I’ve loved dogs since I first laid eyes on a golden retriever as an infant. In fact, in my childhood, I even drafted up a contract with my parents that if they got me a dog, I would get into THEIR dream college for me (#indianparents 😂) and I certainly held up my end of the bargain. But last year after my diagnosis, I made a decision that I was no longer going to wait for the “right time” to get my puppy. I was done depriving myself of a personal dream that was in my reach if I just made the decision. So, I of course confided in my brother Neil. The day before my surgery, as my whole family sat in silence and in prayer, Neil and I spent the day researching puppies, calling shelters and then...Neil found her - we both knew instantly she was the one. Without my family even realizing what was happening, we put in all the paperwork and she was set to be on her way a few weeks later. That moment has bonded us together forever. The thought of Gabby being on the other side of what was relayed to us as a complicated, life threatening surgery (and my first one at that), truly got me through one of the scariest days of my life. And you bet that my brother Neil was right by my side every step of the way. Today, a year later, I celebrate a very happy day courtesy of a very special person. #neilappreciationday

👏🏼 3 MONTHS OLD 👏🏼 #swipe for comparison!! — Nova Richmond has two personalities 🎭: 1) She’ll let you hold her like a baby and stare deep into your eyes like you’re the only person that matters in the world, OR 2) She will charge you and growl at you and bite you like you are one of her brothers! 🤦🏻‍♀️🙇🏻‍♀️😑 — Very puppy + toddler-like, so obviously we are still training her how to act properly in our household. She’s suuuuuper social!! Everyone who comes through our door will get the most excited + happy greeting from our wiggly-butt furball! 😍👅🥰 Nova is pretty much crate-trained. She no longer pees in her crate when we’re gone, tho we come home every 3-4hrs to let her out. We’re working on stretching out that time. — C-ptsd + Fibro update: She is always by my side. Separation anxiety is a real struggle. We’re working with her on this by allowing her to spend more time with each kid + the Huz alone, and sleeping with them on some nights. She’s definitely “my” dog, and knows to be there as my comfort. Tho, I need her to know that I can take care of myself sometimes! 😜 — #novameansnew #3monthsold #toddler #update #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dog #dogsofinstagram #shihtzu #shihtzusofinstagram #therapy #puppytherapy #dogtherapy #emotionalsupportanimal #esa #emotionalsupportdog #recovery #heal #cptsd #ptsd #posttraumatic #trauma #narcissisticabuse #fibromyalgia #survivor #anxiety #metoo #ifmywoundswerevisible

This girl always needs to be where I am. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🥰 I love it and I don’t. We knew going into this that shih tzu’s, being a loyal + affectionate breed, were more susceptible to separation anxiety. We’re doing what we know how to help her feel more comfortable about this. — She slept with the kids again last night. Tho, Huz + I could hear her little footsteps pacing back + forth. We learned that she kept racing into my room, looking for me. 😩 When she got up this morning, she ran into my room, did what she can to get on my bed, and charged at me! I got so many kisses + bites + exhales!! — #novameansnew #separationanxiety #loyal #affectionate #shelovesme #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dog #dogsofinstagram #shihtzu #shihtzusofinstagram #therapy #puppytherapy #dogtherapy #emotionalsupportanimal #esa #emotionalsupportdog #recovery #heal #cptsd #ptsd #posttraumatic #trauma #narcissisticabuse #fibromyalgia #survivor #anxiety #metoo #ifmywoundswerevisible

🚨 REAL TALK POST 🚨 I think I was newly married (16 years ago 🙊) when I was diagnosed with it. No one I knew had ever heard of it before. It took me a few doctors’ appointments for them to finally figure out what it was. “Costochondritis” It would take over a decade later for “them” to link that, amongst other random symptoms + diagnoses, to fibromyalgia. — I had a flare-up today (well, I’m still having it). Chest pains that feel like you’re about to have a heart attack. You can’t breathe from the pain, and I have a high tolerance. They come like lightening, and leave your body and mental state in a sudden panic. You’d think I’d be used to it by now. But nothing a little Rescue Remedy can’t fix... That, and snuggles + kisses 👅 from my Nova girl! — #novameansnew #chestpain #panic #costochondritis #rescueremedy #puppysnuggles #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dog #dogsofinstagram #shihtzu #shihtzusofinstagram #therapy #puppytherapy #dogtherapy #emotionalsupportanimal #esa #emotionalsupportdog #recovery #heal #cptsd #ptsd #posttraumatic #trauma #narcissisticabuse #fibromyalgia #survivor #anxiety #metoo #ifmywoundswerevisible

This girl is always with me... 👭 — Last night was her first night without me, and I missed her. 😩 We’re training her to spend time without me and spend some nights with the kids. It’s good for her, since shih tzu’s are more suceptible to separation anxiety and she’s already got it bad. But brutal for my sleeping pattern! 😜 — #novameansnew #bestfriends #bff #bestie #separationanxiety #shihtzuproblems #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dog #dogsofinstagram #shihtzu #shihtzusofinstagram #therapy #puppytherapy #dogtherapy #emotionalsupportanimal #esa #emotionalsupportdog #recovery #heal #cptsd #ptsd #posttraumatic #trauma #narcissisticabuse #fibromyalgia #survivor #anxiety #metoo #ifmywoundswerevisible

Someone learned how to climb up the stairs! 🤗 Still working on going down them tho, cuz she will scorpion! 🦂😂🤦🏻‍♀️ — THIS IS ME GOING FORWARD AND NEVER LOOKING BACK. 🙌🏼 — Today is always a sad day for me. Today is when our first daughter was due. Today is when we adopted our Aussie Shep mix because I lost her and we couldn’t take her home. 😔 Today she would have been 14. 💔 — #novameansnew #puppystairs #movingforward #loss #duaghters #dontlookback #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dog #dogsofinstagram #shihtzu #shihtzusofinstagram #therapy #puppytherapy #dogtherapy #emotionalsupportanimal #esa #emotionalsupportdog #recovery #heal #cptsd #ptsd #posttraumatic #trauma #narcissisticabuse #fibromyalgia #survivor #anxiety #metoo #ifmywoundswerevisible

Approved names we call this girl: Nova Nova Richmond Navorski Novi Genovia Nov Novster Little Girl The Baby Wicket Gizmo Billy Goat Belt Sloth Angela Lansbury — How many names does your dog have?! 😆 — #novameansnew #nicknames #names #viktornavorski #genovia #angelalansbury #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dog #dogsofinstagram #shihtzu #shihtzusofinstagram #therapy #puppytherapy #dogtherapy #emotionalsupportanimal #esa #emotionalsupportdog #recovery #heal #cptsd #ptsd #posttraumatic #trauma #narcissisticabuse #fibromyalgia #survivor #anxiety #metoo #ifmywoundswerevisible

My favorite thing is when she sleeps in my arms like a baby! — I KNOW she’s not my baby, and she’s not to be treated like a child. While I love her a whole lot, we keep a balanced view of a pet in our home. — But there are very few feelings that compare to holding a puppy! 🤗 It calms you, and there’s an unconditional love that’s (obviously 😋) unspoken of. She feels safe in your care, and you feel safe in hers. 🐶♥️👩🏻 Love you Nova Richmond!!! — #novameansnew #puppybaby #unconditionallove #bestfriend #bestie #bff #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dog #dogsofinstagram #shihtzu #shihtzusofinstagram #therapy #puppytherapy #dogtherapy #emotionalsupportanimal #esa #emotionalsupportdog #recovery #heal #cptsd #ptsd #posttraumatic #trauma #narcissisticabuse #fibromyalgia #survivor #anxiety #metoo #ifmywoundswerevisible

“It’s so fluffy I’m gonna die!!” — We learned that this girl gets frustrated + arrogant when she can’t be with us! 😆😩😄 It’s not great that she does this, but it’s sooo cuuuute!! — When she’s on something she can’t jump off of, she’ll start barking to get our attention...then the growls come cuz she figures if we’re not listening, she’s gonna act like she mad and she didn’t wanna be with us anyway! 😒🤣😍 — #novameansnew #fluffy #itssofluffyimgonnadie #maddog #funny #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dog #dogsofinstagram #shihtzu #shihtzusofinstagram #therapy #puppytherapy #dogtherapy #emotionalsupportanimal #esa #emotionalsupportdog #recovery #heal #cptsd #ptsd #posttraumatic #trauma #narcissisticabuse #fibromyalgia #survivor #anxiety #metoo #ifmywoundswerevisible

Since our vet said Nova couldn’t go to the groomer’s til after all her vaccines AND we were o v e r wiping + washing pee-drenched shih tzu hair...Iiiii just cut it myself!! 😬🙊🤗 (can you see the bitten scissors from our first pup Diesel, that we just couldn’t get rid of!?) — A little early #muttbuttmonday for yall... — #novameansnew #puppysfirsthaircut #shihtzuhaircut #muttbutt #puppybooty #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dog #dogsofinstagram #shihtzu #shihtzusofinstagram #therapy #puppytherapy #dogtherapy #emotionalsupportanimal #esa #emotionalsupportdog #recovery #heal #cptsd #ptsd #posttraumatic #trauma #narcissisticabuse #fibromyalgia #survivor #anxiety #metoo #ifmywoundswerevisible

Miss Nova Richmond did so good at her very first vet appointment yesterday! Weighing in at 3.4lbs 😩, Dr. says she’s a good healthy girl! — We loved visiting our new vet office, even tho it was more than half an hour away! We chose a Holistic Veterinarian. Since my current health conditions need me to be chemical-free and clean-eating, it would only make sense to choose a vet who would understand and support that. — Special thanks to @rachelfusaro for introducing us to holistic vets!! 🙏🏼 Didn’t even know there was such a thing!? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Check out her YouTube videos dog-moms + dog-dads! — #novameansnew #firstvetvisit #healthypup #holisticvet #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dog #dogsofinstagram #shihtzu #shihtzusofinstagram #therapy #puppytherapy #dogtherapy #emotionalsupportanimal #esa #emotionalsupportdog #recovery #heal #cptsd #ptsd #posttraumatic #trauma #narcissisticabuse #fibromyalgia #survivor #anxiety #metoo #ifmywoundswerevisible

🚨 REAL TALK POST 🚨 Sleepless nights with pmdd and fibromyalgia... Went to bed at 11:30p last night (way early for me), and woke at 3a on the verge of an anxiety attack. It’s like Nova knew, cuz she snuggled extra close to me at that exact moment. (yes 🤦🏻‍♀️, she sleeps in the bed with me; it’s the only way she’ll sleep through the night, and not need to pee + poop 4 times through the night...or cry endlessly for me) — Sometimes I fear closing my eyes to dose off, cuz I might have a nightmare. My c-ptsd has been making me nervous lately... My Dr. has been on strike, so I haven’t seen him in a month and a half. I expressed to my loved ones that I needed a Recovery Buddy. 😬 And tho they have generously offered, Nova’s lovin so far has done the trick! 🐶♥️👩🏻 — I know I have a long way to go, recovering from narcissistic abuse...I barely just found out 4-months ago. The choice to try Nova has been a blessing so far. 🙏🏼 — #novameansnew #realtalk #sleeplessnights #anxietyattack #recoverybuddy #mexicanblanket #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dog #dogsofinstagram #shihtzu #shihtzusofinstagram #therapy #puppytherapy #dogtherapy #emotionalsupportanimal #esa #emotionalsupportdog #recovery #heal #cptsd #ptsd #posttraumatic #trauma #narcissisticabuse #fibromyalgia #survivor #anxiety #metoo #ifmywoundswerevisible

🔊 SOUND ON / VOLUME UP 🔊 Someone found their voice last night... — P.S. NEVER a word of babytalk to either of my kids. Soon as this baby came... It just comes out of me!!?! 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ — #novameansnew #puppybark #bark #babytalk #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dog #dogsofinstagram #shihtzu #shihtzusofinstagram #therapy #puppytherapy #dogtherapy #emotionalsupportanimal #esa #emotionalsupportdog #recovery #heal #cptsd #ptsd #posttraumatic #trauma #narcissisticabuse #fibromyalgia #survivor #anxiety #metoo #ifmywoundswerevisible

👏🏼 2 MONTHS OLD 👏🏼 I don’t have a cute marquee...but I do have my late gramma/homegirl’s favorite antique chair that I’ll keep forever. Thought that would make for a sweet backdrop to these monthly photos! — We’ve only had Nova for a few weeks, but we’ve gotten to know her cues pretty well. She will work for peanut butter, she sleeps through the night only next to Momma 🙄, and she loves chewing/gnawing on her toys (sometimes our fingers). She’s super chill, and likes to lounge at the foot of our recliners. — In regards to how she’s helped so far with my fibromyalgia + c-ptsd: she’s regulated my sleep pattern quite a bit. No more sleeping at 3a, I’ve been averaging around midnight. I haven’t had time to focus on my daily pains. And when I’ve had a nightmare or have been depressed, she’s been very calming to have around. She definitely knows her place with me, and is attentive + loving when she feels Momma needs it. 😌 — #novameansnew #2monthsold #biggirl #update #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #dog #dogsofinstagram #shihtzu #shihtzusofinstagram #therapy #puppytherapy #dogtherapy #emotionalsupportanimal #esa #emotionalsupportdog #recovery #heal #cptsd #ptsd #posttraumatic #trauma #narcissisticabuse #fibromyalgia #survivor #anxiety #metoo #ifmywoundswerevisible
