Not the most exciting start to a blog, but hopefully I will become more confident and adept at my posts as I go along. You may be thinking why on earth does someone that named their blog Bitter Betties have a cute puppy picture as one of the first things that you see. Well, the cute puppy is one of my dogs, Bambi of http://www.savebambi.net/ (and can be found under Save Bambi on Facebook) and we are currently struggling to raise money for her cancer treatments and the transplant that could cure her. The problem is (here is the rant for today) that though many people come to us asking for donations for whatever little cause, or event has struck their fancy they fail to reciprocate when we ask for help. Even when we state repeatedly that any little bit, even a dollar, can help and that simply sharing helps to spread news of our dilemma and hopefully would help to find more help these people that spend their time posting pics of their food, selfies, or the latest version of planking can’t seem to find the time to hit “share.” As an animal rights supporter, and online/social media advocate for animal causes I have shared countless pleas to save so many animals and yet I can’t get my own friends to help save my own pet. My inner bitch will be emerging and refusing to like, share, donate, or offer encouragement about any of their little projects/causes come lately in the future. I shall name my inner Bitter Betty, Karma and Karma is a bitch baby.
As I am Bitter Betty number one I will make this about me, until the other two decide to contribute to something more than the name. I am a graduate of UNLV, but am native to California, and while my personality prefers California, my bank account (though quite empty at the moment) prefers Las Vegas. I am quite contrary in my personality, in that I am both quite opinionated, and pretty much an introvert. A bit of an enigma I suppose. I am a huge animal lover with dreams of starting my own animal sanctuary. I love crafting, arts, and music of all sorts, and have many interests if I could just get myself to stay out of pain long enough, or focus on one particular thing long enough, to perfect it. I have been in multiple car accidents (none of which were my fault thank you very much as I was usually the passenger), have been told that I likely have fibromyalgia (but for some reason I can't get my doctors to further explore the issue), suffer from chronic migraines, as well as every other kind of headache that exists, and a laundry list of problems associated with these issues and because of this I can't attack my various interests as often, or as voraciously as I would like, and have been out of work for several years. I'd like to get my own business started so that I could bring in an income while having the freedom that I need in performing a job that allows me to stop and start as needed in order to avoid as much pain as possible.
