Why I have been so quiet..

I have been dealing with health, financial, and dog adoption issues.

I have been suffering from a lot of vertigo and balance issues, as well as digestive problems. I think the vertigo is being caused by anxiety and stress. Some of my digestive issues are also probably related to my anxiety and stress. I just can not stand up for too long at one time. I have also had a lot of pain in my lower right back, which varies from tolerable to extreme. I get sharp and intense shooting pains when I move that radiate from my lower back up my right side.

I am generally very low on money after I pay my rent and phone bills. I have given up my VPS at Digital Ocean, so that should give me a bit more money starting in May. I have also paid off my phone with T-Mobile, so that will also help a bit. I need to get back on Medi-Cal, so I can get back on my good insurance and gain back the $125.00/month that is currently being taken out for my medicare premium.

I am still trying to adopt a good dog, so I can have a good emotional support animal. I still do not have the letter from my doctor, and am now looking for a new doctor to replace him. I have my eye on a female American Staffordshire Terrier named Olivia. She is a real cutie, weighs 45 poiunds, is 2 1/2 years old, is well trained, and is fully housebroken.

However, I am having difficulty getting the filled out application to the shelter that has her. Their application is in the form of a PDF file, which I have no way to do anything with. I may have to find a nearvy Kinkos to get my filled out application scanned into images that are larger and easier to read. I am running Linux, and have very few ways I can manipulate a PDF file. This PDF does not have important information embedded, like field names.
