I have got to get this medical alert dog...it's getting crazy!! My sugar was 36 or lower when I was driving at lunch yesterday. I ran a red light, fortunately no accident occurred...but what about next time? I can not have this happening. I felt fine, I thought I could think fine and had no idea there was anything wrong, until I saw the light was red...AS I WAS DRIVING THROUGH IT, then as I drove on through, I noticed that I had no idea where I was. I had missed my turn. This was way beyond dangerous. Not just for me but for everyone else who happened to be on the road with me that afternoon. I could have killed people if I had caused an accident.
The bad thing is that the only place I can get a dog from says it will cost AT LEAST $7500 to get one and pay for all the classes etc. That is about 1/3 my yearly salary. I can't just fork that over. So, I am going to have to rely on donations and whatever else I can get.
I was told to try putting an add in the paper. I don't exactly know what that would mean, but I'm thinking it's worth a try. Maybe my local television station Channel 7 could run a story on the home page of their website. Something getting the word out, that I need help!!
So, I am going to rely on what ever help I can get. If you can help me or know an organization that might be able to help please get in touch with me.
The good thing about this is that I not only get the dog for myself but I will gain the skills to train other dogs. I plan on using what I learn to open up a non profit dog training place for the state of Oklahoma and surrounding areas. So, with this I will be able to help other Oklahomans and people from other neighboring states who need the help, and like me are unable to afford it themselves. Though, I would do my best not to charge nearly the amount this place charges, and I would not use private dog breeders. I would breed my own dogs and train them.
So, if this sounds like something good, please help me in any way that you can. Together we can change the world as far as other diabetics. Plus, you just might save my life, and the lives of so many others!!
Please...I beg of you!!
