Well my story begins 4 years ago with a dog bite that changed my life. While working at a doggie daycare as their dog trainer I was bit in the elbow during a dog fight. And from their life hasn't been quit the same. Since then I've had a 5 day hospital stay from another dog bite that got infected and went septic. To a week after being released from that having my car totaled by an insured motorist. And while dealing with those two issues the prior dog bite to my elbow had a massive flare up causing pain and discomfort and a loss of being able to work never might struggling just to find rides to and from work while trying to replace my totaled vehicle and with in a year of replacing the vehicle I had a car tire from opposing traffic smash out my windshield leading to more issues with work and finances. And from their my arm continued to get worse leading to a need for nerve surgery on the ulnar nerve which took almost a full year to recover from. And following up on that it left me unable to continue on as a dog trainer cause of the lack of strength and mobility in my dominant arm. Which eventually lead my to a second surgery. And through this journey I have released how easy it can be to fall down and fall through the cracks of society. Since once you have fallen past a certain point their isn't much help out there. But the most important help that I have gotten to get me through all of this even when I wanted to give up and take my dog and be homeless and travel across country on foot as a bus. My family and close friends wouldn't allow me to do that. And because of their help and guidance through these last 4 years I am at a point where I will be starting training to get a class A CDL and will have the ability to almost double my income that I was making as a dog trainer before all of these issues came up. No now their are many more demons in my past but that's where they live now and the future is my new home and they are not welcome in my new home. So when times get tough remember to talk to your friends and family no matter how long it's been since the last time you spoke to them. They could save your life when you need it the most.
