Sebastian — Service

Location: Downingtown, Pennsylvania

I was diagnosed with hemiplegic migraines at 13, these migraines mimic stroke symptoms and are very debilitating. I tried all the treatments I could – some medications make my migraines worse while the remaining had terrible side effects that I was very sensitive too, I was in and out of the hospital for treatments. I got Sebastian as a pet and after a while caught on he was telling I was getting them before I would. After doing research and reaching out to others I realized what he was doing and trained him to reliably alert to my migraines. I was misdiagnosed for over a decade for other health issues and after being told it wasn’t the original illness and my health started to get worse I decided to teach Sebastian to alert to more of my health problems that get in my way. Sebastian took to his training like a fish to water and loved learning! He takes great pride in his work and loves to task. He helps me primarily with my migraines, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTs) and fibromyalgia but also helps lessen the toll of my other illnesses through his tasks too. Please consider Sebastian as he’s not only given me great joy in life but my independence back.
