I am so sorry of your struggles. I have heard that too about monkeys but dont know about it first hand. Have you looked or googled online? Would this be to help you be able to get out? I wonder now thinking about it why you dont see monkeys out like service dogs for ex? Would you think of getting a dog possibly or would it be too hard to take him out? I was not sure if you may have a sliding door or something?
Though I get out I also live alone and because of my medical and pain I am limited so have limited contact with people since my family is out of state so I also feel lonely. I did go through a period when I had severe ocd/anxiety/depression where I had not to the extent of what yours sounds like but a hard time leaving do to many factors. That though after over a decade of struggles and many treatments is better so I guess my point is that I hope things for you can too.
If you find out about the monkey let me know or if I read of anything I will let you

Hey guys!
I recently got a letter from my psychiatric about a ESA. I live in a trailer park (I own the trailer just rent the space) and dogs aren't allowed.
Can my renter legally prohibit me having a dog around the place?

Confused Can you please help

I suffer from schizophrenia, PTSD, Severe Anxiety Disorder and several other mental conditions. I have a pit bull that I have had since he was 6 weeks old that can since when I am having a panic attack and he helps when I am having what I call my schizo attacks he lays his body across my chest to sooth me. I have just recently talked to my psychiatrist about making him my constant companion but I don't know what else I need to do nor does he for us to accomplish this can anybody please help me.

If you mean some kind of status beyond being a pet, that may be a hard sell depending on your location.

Breed-specific laws state-by-state (and international)

Some insurance companies also have breed-specific clauses/exceptions to coverage. You would have to look to your policy regarding that.
