In an emotional video, a woman living with Asperger syndrome (an autism spectrum disorder) shows how her dog helped her through an emotional breakdown. The woman was crying in the bathroom, hurting herself, but she was not alone. Her service dog was on high alert. He was trained to deal with this kind of situations. ‘I trained him to alert to depressive episodes and self-harm not both but he alerted. It appears the response is late but it’s actually supposed to be as I’m coming out of the meltdown as I tend to have a panic attack after,’ wrote the woman in the video’s description.
