Hi there! My name is Johnnielynn. I am a lifestyle blogger who writes about mental health as well as other things. Typically I talk about my own but today were going to be discussing my dog. I got my dog in August 2020 yes he is a "covid puppy". I adopted a dog mostly on impulse. Now before you judge I work from home, I have before covid and still do now that the world has gone back to normal. I have plenty of time with him and he is loved very much. Most people will hear that he was a covid puppy and he has anxiety and will tell me that's why. They assume separation anxiety, Tucker doesn't have separation anxiety. He has general and a bit of social anxiety. . It started as a puppy So I got him when he was three months old. He was at an in home daycare, I don't know if the kids were rough with him or just too rowdy but when I got him kids scared him. My nieces and nephews he was happy with, but other kids would scare him and he'd start panic barking.
Good morning or evening I don't know when you logged on. My name is Johnnielynn and I am extremely anxious. I have struggled with anxiety for as long as I can remember. Over my 34 years of life I've had to learn to cope and how to function not just with it but inspire of it. Where my anxiety began I don't know if my anxiety is a result of abandonment trauma or if it's a chemical imbalance. I do know that while I don't remember experienceing it until I was 7 my mom said I was much younger. When I was 3 my parents got a divorce. during that time and until my youngest sister was 3 we had a family councilor that was concerned with my self esteem, or lac of. My mom has told me that she was told to praise everything I did. "Johnnielynn you're sitting so nicely" "look how good you're..." I only remember being 7. I remember being in second grade, and every day I was crying because my tummy hurt. As soon as I was out of school I was happy
