Pets are antidepressants
What is the meaning of life, why am I here, what is the purpose of life. Why did my wife leave me? Is my boss yelling? Why are we still here? Just for suffering? Is my existence futile? Oh, look a puppy, ah so cute… !!! Let me feed it and whoosh. It’s gone, the depression just like that pencil from batman. Was it even there in the first place? Pets are antidepressants!
So most antidepressants come in the forms of pills that your therapist prescribes you so that he/she doesn’t have to listen to your ruckus anymore and you will come back running back for more pills and they will remain rich. What they don’t tell you is that there are living antidepressants. Some of you might even hate me for calling pets an antidepressant. But it is the truth.
An experiment was conducted after world war 2 to know the serotonin level of a group of people who had pets and who didn’t. (Serotonin is a hormone that stabilizes our mood, feelings, and happiness. This hormone impacts your entire body. It enables brain cells and other nervous system cells to communicate with each other. Serotonin also helps with sleeping, eating, and digestion).

Both groups were given depressants (cortisol steroid) and were told to stay awake for 24 hours. Just listening to staying awake gives me depression, hah.! The group with pets was introduced to their pets after 24 hours and they survived more than the other group whereas the other group gave up earlier. Poor souls.
After the technology developed, by modern science it was found by MRI that serotonin level was 5 times higher in people with pets than people with no pets. So maybe cleaning the poop off your pet isn’t a bad idea no? It is certainly not!
