Finally got ahold of the disabilities office and I'm upset. The woman on the other end was a bit condescending, had me repeat a bunch of stuff like she couldn't believe what I said, etc. At the end she said it's difficult to have puppies on campus due to a variety of reasons but I know that's absolute crap. I've seen a lot of dogs and young puppies on campus, and the girl in the dorm next to me has a very small kitten. I've even seen a fake service dog, and guess what. It's in my building. She also said to look into an esa, and maybe I could bring a puppy onto campus as an esa. Which??? What help will that be? So- I can have a puppy as an esa and not a sdit? The heck? Does she think, like, I don't need a service dog? That an esa would be of any help? And for those wondering if she maybe meant paperwork wise as a way to get a dog on campus, she specifically stated that "maybe an esa will help you better. Just, like, knowing it's waiting for you in your dorm." Yeah, cause when I'm in math class having a psychotic episode an esa will totally be able to lead me away. When my heart rate gets too high while hiking an esa will be able to alert in time so I can avoid passing out. Which, there's nothing wrong with an esa, Bella's an esa as well as a retired task-trained service dog, but the way she said it. Like I didn't know what I was talking about and/or just wanted attention or to sneak a pet on campus. She's calling me back soon, and I'm going to set up a face-to-face appointment soon too. Here's hoping.
