I love my mother and I most certainly would have flown out to visit her after she had her recent stroke had I been in the financial or personal position to do so, but now that she is starting to recover she is getting back to her trade, guilt trips. Only my mother could have difficulty speaking as a result of her recent stroke and still manage to call me to leave me a message asking me when I would be coming out to visit. I should say that this “visit” she wants is not simply because she wants to see me, it is to get me to do some work for her because she does not trust my brothers or my stepfather to do things the way that she likes them done. All of them live in California and would have little difficulty helping her, but they refuse to help her the way that she wants them to do it so instead they do nothing and bitch about it. Me, my broke (and not to mention broken with ongoing health and physical issues) ass and my pets all live in Nevada. Day to day existence is often a hardship for me (financially and physically), let alone finding a way to go out to California whenever I am beckoned.
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.
