I don’t know about you, but I am always seeing stories about people donating thousands of dollars (actually it should be thousands of people donating and raising thousands of dollars) for causes that have no bearing on, or connection to their own lives whatsoever. I am constantly seeing “human interest” stories where people have worked to network and share stories and pages about various causes to catch the interest of those in the position to help out. Though I find most of these of some interest, I am most interested in the animal stories because of my love of animals and because all of my pets are rescues with their own stories that I may or may not know. I have shared these stories countless times for others and though I have not been in a position to help financially in quite a while ( a long story for perhaps another rant) I do what I can, which is to share, share, share. I mean really, all you have to do is hit a damn button and you’re done and yet I am finding that a great many of my own friends and family are too lazy to even do that. Sure, when something of their interest crosses my pages I share for them and I am fairly certain that they expect that of their friends and family and yet when the shoe is on the other foot, NOTHING. When your so-called friends can’t be bothered to share even once, let alone donate even one dollar to something important to you, are they really still your friends? I am seriously contemplating not saying anything to any of them for at least a month to see if they even notice, since they are clearly too wrapped up in their own self-absorbed worlds. Apparently it is more important to share Grumpy Cat or postcard memes about drinking than it is to help your own family or supposed friend save the life of one of their pets, but by all means share with us another picture of your dinner or tell me how you’re bored. If you’re at all interested in seeing the story that has me so pissed then visit http://www.savebambi.net/ for more information and click on how you can help if you want to help save a beloved family member that is no less important just because she happens to be covered in fur.
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.
