Woman With Asperger's and the Service Dog Who Prevents Her From Self Harm

 YouTube Link

This video, captured and shared by a woman named Danielle Jacobs who suffers from Asperger's syndrome, shows the powerful positive impact her service dog Samson has in her battle with the disorder. Danielle set up a camera in her home to record footage of her daily life, which includes frequent emotional challenges with depression and panic. She says,

“This is what really happened and it’s not easy to open myself and share what it’s like on a daily basis.”

This clip shows Danielle coming out of a depressive episode, which is met with a new bout of panic. As the emotional storm takes hold and Danielle has the urge to hurt herself, Samson takes action and does his best to soothe her. The dog's loyalty and the pair's love for each other is a heartwarming thing to witness. -Via Uproxx
