It’s All About (The) STRUGGLE

Yea. So its been rough.  I was told that my heart is twisted to the right in my chest and ventricular contractions are premature meaning my blood isn't fully oxygenated. I have to go have a stress test and wear a halter monitor for 24 hours to see how severe things are. Its scary.
On top of that, I can't seem to keep any weight on. Its literally falling off of me. I weigh like 99 lbs. and I'm exhausted. ALL. THE. TIME. They took me off antidepressants in case they were contributing to the problem. WITHDRAWAL SUCKS.

But I'm still pushing through, going to work, working on my children's book.  I am determined to make a positive difference in some small way no matter what life throws at me!

Adoptable Pets of the Week

This weeks adoptable dog is Maui!

My name is Maui! I am an older rat terrier mix looking for a good home. I came to PAWS with my teeth in terrible condition, most of which were surgically removed. The workers here at the shelter have been taking wonderful and patient care of me, learning how incredibly sweet I really am. If you have a lap I can lay in or arms I can fall asleep in, you are my favorite kind of person. I absolutely love to cuddle, and you can make me fall asleep as easy as "pick...me...up". I also get along with other animals, and people of all ages. Please contact PAWS for more information!

I picked Maui because he is a senior dog and I feel like dogs give so much they deserve to spend their golden years in a loving home.

This week's adoptable cat is: Hawkeye!

Hawkeye is a sweet girl with a unique coat! She loves attention and loves to snuggle! She tolerates other cats but prefers to be the only one getting your attention. Bring Hawkeye home today and see what a love bug she is!

I chose Hawkeye because she is about 5 and almost all black. Black animals tend to get looked over and are the most euthanized in shelters (Even though PAWS is no kill). Plus look how stinkin' cute she is!

Animal Rescue

Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society is a Non-Profit No Kill Animal Shelter located at 455 F Edward Hebert Blvd, Belle Chasse, LA 70037. Their phone number is  (504) 392-1601. This is an organization that is near and dear to my heart. I did all my service hours with them through High School. I adopted two dogs from them. They were litter mates. They were my furry children.  Jack passed suddenly in 2012. Max just recently at 18 years old. I wanted to have a fundraiser in their honor.  FUNDRAISER LINK 

I decided why not go a step further and do my own little adoptable pet of the week?

I'll share my animal rescue posts here. If you need a home for a pet or would like to advertise an animal rights issue with me, please contact me at lorenbullitt@gmail.com

My Hero

I have been trying to make this fundraiser happen.

Shameless Plug: https://www.mightycause.com/story/2002jackmax

Its for a nonprofit, no kill shelter I adopted my dogs from. My last dog just passed at 18 years old and I wanted to honor them in someway and help the shelter as well.

Well the fundraiser web page asks you to tell a little bit about yourself and ask questions like... Who is Your Hero? That one kinda stopped me in my tracks and really made me think? WHO IS MY HERO?! I thought and thought and finally decided. Its my birth mother. She could have had an abortion but instead she sacrificed her body for 9 months and then did the most selfless thing ever... gave me to a family that could give me the life she couldn't. I was blessed to finally meet her at 25 and she's wonderful. I look like her. Our personalities are very similar and I love her to bits. I can never really repay her for what she did for me. Christine, if you ever read this, I love you and YOU ARE MY HERO!cropped-untitled

Fundraiser for Plaquemines Animal Welfare Society

I was diagnosed with depression at a young age and these two dogs came into my life and saved me.

In Honor of Jack and Max

Please Help. Advice Needed!

brainyquote for the bad times

So I drove all the way to work in my piece of garbage car just to find out I am off today. I commute to work and have been working very hard to save up for a newer, safer vehicle. So I drove all the way home and (by the grace of God this didn't happen on the interstate) when I pulled into the driveway and attempted to shift into park. The gear shift was slack and would not shift out of drive! I was terrified if I took my foot of the brake pedal I'd go through my parents garage door. I put on the emergency brake and tried to turn it off. It turned off. Thank God for that. I thought maybe it's just an electrical malfunction and attempted to turn it back on. Absolutely nothing. No lights no radio. It is completely dead.

It's been a rough few years for me. I was assaulted in December of 2016. She beat the crap out of me. I have been dealing with lawyers and worker's comp trying to get justice for almost 2 years now.

My boyfriend kicked me out and immediately moved another woman in. He kept my cat and a lot of my personal belongings. I was forced to move back in with my parents. I feel like such a burden and a loser.

I was demoted at work due to my health issues: I suffer from Depression, Anxiety, and Chronic, Debilitating Migraines. And now I possibly have a heart condition. They cut my pay a whole $2 and my hours as well.

On a good note, I decided to go back to college and finally get a degree. Tuition is not cheap.

And then my beloved dog, Max passed away.

I have been trying so hard to break into successful online blogging, freelance writing. I am even trying to write a children's book about being adopted. I can't seem to figure this blogging or freelance thing out. And I don't know that my book is any good.

I am so completely and hopelessly overwhelmed. My credit is not great because I dont have much of it and what I do have is very young. Please give me some advice. Please give me some hope.
