My train conductor


I am one proud wife as my husband passed all the testing and goes off to start his training at Pan Am Railways today! His lifelong love of trains and knowledge of them payed off for him and he is now a train conductor!! He is already talking about moving up to engineer and being top of the class made his superiors pushing him to do so. Weeks of him away from home have been rough but seeing how happy he is makes it worth doing over and over. His ex wife had denied him this dream along with other multiple abusive things that killed his confidence and I am proud to have helped him restore all that. I feel like our past of both being abused helps us to appreciate each other more for just being ourselves. It was a long road for us both but well worth it to find this strong and deep of a mental and emotional bond with someone. I am very proud of him !!!!

Policies on emergency care for animals


https://www.change.org/p/people-for-the-ethical-treatment-of-animals-peta-change-the-policies-for-emergency-care-for-animals?recruiter=687672794&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink&utm_campaign=share_petition&utm_term=autopublish

My name is Kathy Stremcha

August 1st I rushed my dog to the emergency hospital in Middleton Wisconsin. Got him in there they took an x-ray, came back told me it was bloat. I told them well fix him basically. They told me their policy is money up front before they can proceed.  No no no….I want you to get him in there please he’s my baby!

We need 3000.00 before we can proceed. I told them I can get if but he’s sleeping he’s a truck driver and he’s not answering the phone. PLEASE GET HIM IN THERE. Nope…I had to choose let him suffer,or put him to sleep. That is ridiculous he was everything to me….my constant companion( Dr.orders) I have ptsd and agoraphobia.. he was Akc registered Great Dane (blue) champion bloodlines….and they took him from me.

Meet, Atlas !!!


A Florida rescue puppy made his way to our hearts and we just had to keep him! 9 months old and a little oddly shaped having the short legs and long torso of a Bassett hound but the head and tail of a black lab! The past couple weeks has been a fun adventure with puppy chewing and teaching and bonding and all around puppy craziness!!!! He’s been to a few homes so he has been a little hesitant to call it home but I think he’s settling in now, he loves his crate, potty trained, sits before food or treats, knows his name and out or potty and of course knows no!!! The only problem we r having is he is used to kitties that played with him and when mine come out most times he ends up chasing them back into hiding. They have sniffed each other and can all sit together with no problems, just when he wants to play they run. It’s a work in progress!!! Lol


Love this app!!!!! This is only after about , 3 months!!!

Bipolar


If you have followed me for a bit you would here now and again about my best friend who has bipolar. We have gone through her manias, people taking advantage of her in her manic state, and her multiple manic episodes in the past year. I have learned a lot by reading and talking to people about the illness. My girl went ten years with out an episode but then her father died and started a roller coaster of episodes. When her baby daddy died it just got worse and it has been not only hard on her but her three boys as well.

This time is the depression and it is completely new to me, I have never had any experience with this and it’s pretty scary. I went to check on her and she is not her, lost weight, staring off and not really even answering any questions or acknowledged I was there. She went in to the hospital last night and her dr was supposed to come in and see her this morning to give her a shot of some kind to help her come out of it. I can’t imagine how hard it must be for her kids to have to see her going through this.

Change


If I looked back a few years or more the person you would see would not be me. From physical, mental and emotional abused relationships always with narcissist men , to realizing I needed to change myself for my kids sake and then the journey back to being at peace( mostly) with my self, I have come a long way. I still think of the years I spent hiding inside my safety of home and letting life just slip by. I wasted years and years like that. I still would rather be in my house but I love myself now so it’s different. It’s not easy asking for help, getting into therapy and staying with it but I know with out a doubt it saved me. I still deal with narcissist people, and I try to remember they really are not doing it intentionally, or don’t even realize they are but it is not easy.

This is regarding the man on the sex offenders registry that has been terrorizing our kids here in Maine taking pictures of them and then posting them on his social sites with crude and disgusting remarks. This man thinks sex with children should be legal!!!! We need help tightening the leash on these guys and not allowing things like this to happen. The police say they can do nothing because of his rights to photograph anyone in public.
