How My Pets Make Me Feel Needed

This is hard to say, but in this moment I think I'm alive because of my pets. They NEED me. They need me to feed them, cuddle them, care for them. Sometimes they're the only thing keeping me from doing something really irresponsible. I make decisions on how I will take my medication based on how it will affect them, not me. If there is no one else to let Maisy out I can't be so conked out that I can't get up and let her out. If I don't feed Felix the moment his bowl is empty he hops up on my chest and meows and cries to remind me. I'm needed. They need me. No one else really does. I take a whole lot more than I give in most of my relationships.
