I want to again thank everyone for coming to the dinner. I am happy to report that the total is now $10,777. Several times a week I get mail from strangers donating money. Ok, so they are not total strangers they are Retired MNEA members. THANK YOU.
The AVON fund raiser is off to a good start. I will re-post the fliers on FACEBOOK under the event A LifeTime of Freedom- AVON sale. You can message or email your order and I can send you my address. Remember I get a large portion of the proceeds. This is a great way to buy product and help me out. I will deliver to your area if you live outside the St. Louis area.
Thanks for all the help.
Lately I have been feeling the affect of falling sugar levels with insulin on board which are causing fast lows. On the other hand I have been having really high highs. Not sure why. I hate the way it makes me feel and how it impacts my energy level. I worry that I won't catch these changes and so I am testing even more. It stinks!
$14,223 seems like a huge amount, and it is overwhelming to think that I have a number attached to my life. Every single penny I have is going to this cause. There are no extras happening in my life. I hate to spend any money on even the smallest things unless it is a necessity. It hurts to hear my parents voices on the phone right now. They are so worried about me and my health and are also just missing me. I wish I could spend the $500 to go and see them but that $500 has to go the DAD. I'm homesick for Florida also but know what this DAD will be able to do for me.
Even after writing the final check in May I will continue to do fundraising events. When school gets back into session there will be a picnic "The Dog Days of Summer" and also a Trivia night. It is still a long road I have to travel in order to get my DAD. But I will be so much safer with my new friend in my life. I have never allowed my disorder to make me feel handicapped but it is controlling my life and I hate it.
Sorry I rambled but I needed to vent and say what is on my mind.
Thank you for the continued support.
