Help me get a service dog!

Hi, I'm Dominique!

I was born with a condition called Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita. I also have what's called Orthostatic Hypotension, which means my blood pressure drops dangerously low when I'm standing up, and I get dizzy and black out. And, a recent discovery, I'm also losing my hearing.

Because of these things, I am finding it increasingly difficult to do every day things. I can't hear my smoke alarm, my doorbell, my microwave, or my oven timer. My alarm clock doesn't wake me up anymore either. A hearing dog would greatly help with this.

The other thing I'm struggling with is my depression, anxiety, and social anxiety. I recently moved out of my boyfriend's house, and back into my mom's place. Little did I know, that while I wasn't living here, my mom got a life. So I went from constant, almost 24/7 human interaction living with Brian, to being home alone 90% of the time. I wake up to an empty house, go to work, and come home to an empty house. It's really taking a toll on me, mentally and emotionally, being alone for so long. [Again, before you all say, "I love alone time! You should enjoy time to yourself!" I like "me time" just as much as the next human being. I just hate having nothing BUT me time.]

So, what solution do I come up with? A dog, of course! A dog would be a wonderful companion, to combat my loneliness and depression, as well as help with my disability and hearing loss.

My only problem with getting one, and that's where this website comes in, is money.

Literally, ANYTHING you could donate, even $1, would get me that much closer to getting a companion for myself, and caring for her.

If you guys can donate, please help me out. And even if you can't donate, please share this. "Signal Boost" it or whatever. I really need some help right now.

Thank you guys so much. All donations are greatly appreciated, even $1 ones, and will receive a thank you note. <3
