She’s Having An Asperger’s Meltdown. How Her Dog Responded Made Me Cry.

Danielle has Asperger’s and bravely wants people to know what it is like having a meltdown. Just living day-to-day can be incredibly taxing and they depend on predictability. But the world we live in is constantly changing and often we can be surrounded by people who are different emotionally and socially. This is especially difficult for those with Asperger’s Syndrome.

When the stresses get overwhelming, often a “meltdown” can occur and in Danielle’s case overwhelms her to tears. Depression and a feeling of losing control and feeling powerless are common feelings for those with this syndrome. Danielle’s dog, Samson, was very quick to react to her. He does his best to get her attention and try to get her to focus on him to bring her emotions to a more stable level. There is absolutely no way to measure the true impact a pet can have on our emotional health. But there is no doubt here that Samson is a true companion to Danielle doing his best to comfort her any way a best friend would. What a brave girl Danielle is to be open and honest.
