pet, life, hurricane sandy
Okay, here is where things stand.
We are still getting information on contractors for our house and such, we met with one who claims that they can come very close to the amount that NY Rising wants to give out. Hopefully this will work out.
Bad news, FEMA rent money is gone and then there is our cat.
As you know our cat, Pickles had some major health issues and she had to stay overnight at the veterinarian office for three days. She was on an IV and getting shots. In her health condition most cats would have been knocked out. She is a little fighter and kept moving. She followed the treatment plan and improved very fast. It will include insulin for her diabetes and medicine for an infection she has.
Sadly she is diabetic and will have to get two daily insulin shots, the good news is cats can get better. This would be ideal as the insulin cost $200 a bottle. Which is a lot.
The cost of her stay depleted a lot of the funds we had managed to save up as it cost $3000.
Honestly though, I don't think it would have been right to give up an our pet, especially as she fought on and got better. (And she wanted to kill the vets.)
She is home and she had a little check up yesterday with them and she has continued to improve.
Needless to say this week has sucked.
In all of the chaos I wasn't able to post the story last Sunday. I will be continuing to post them and I will post one tomorrow. As a bonus though I did find another cute story that I am considering posting in addition. I am also considering testing a few new things such as a mini-series that will be posted on my blog (and eventually elsewhere) called You Should Play. It will focus on games. I already have the first one picked out and it follows the LGBT theme. I think it will be enjoyed and a pretty cool thing to do. The first game will also be free to download.
So yes a lot of bad things have happened but I am trying so hard to not give up. Even though honestly, sometimes that is all I want to do.


Can't catch a break

cat, hurricane sandy, life
We used some movie passes to see Thor on Sunday, it was a good movie go throw money at it.
That is where the good news ends, I wanted to give an update on Sandy... but sadly there hasn't been a change and NY Rising is NOT as advertised seeing as they want to make people sell their houses/land. We are currently discussing options including trying to go to the greater media. It is a frustrating situation that has kept tensions very high.
In addition to this, our cat, Pickles has had to have a veterinarian visit... and she is staying overnight for a few days. She is very sick with a kidney infection, diabetes, and a slight heart issue. She has been having issues ever since Sandy hit. Pickles used to be an outdoor cat, but as we are relocated she can't be an indoor cat. Needless to say if she had issues, we believe she was self medicating on plants that she ate. Without access to her home she has gotten sick with various issues. She used to be about 22 lbs. She is now 13 lbs.
We saw her today and she was a bit better after getting fluids, insulin, and finally eating again. Still... this adds another $3000 onto our already out of control financial issues created by Hurricane Sandy. 
Yesterday I was wreck, no sleep, felt horrible and depressed. And I spent a lot of time crying... I almost lost it. Today I'm a bit better but things are still hard... we don't want to lose our baby kitty.
Anyway... I wish my blog could be happy again... but who the heck knows when that will happen.

staff, except Im not and 1 more...
Well, it has been a good run on BZP, but sadly I feel that I can no longer perform my staff duties. Ever since Sandy hit I've tried to keep focused on my life and getting that back together. And real life always comes first.
This isn't a decision I've made lightly, I've thought about this for a long time. The BZPower staff has always needed a certain level of fabulous.
I've had a lot of great experiences and I've made a lot of friends through this website, and I'm not planning on leaving any time soon even though I have left the staff.
This is a decision that also allows me to look to the future and focus on my own website.
I've updated my sidebar with some dates and shiny images... you know I never did earn that Copper Huna, I skipped that step when I was promoted ages ago. :P
(Although Now I can just cause trouble. :3)
I do want to say though that I love all of the friends that I've made on BZPower, every single one of you is awesome.

So there has been a post going around Tumblr for awhile and I think it has some things that need to be said here.
It is illegal to be gay in 76 countries.
It is illegal to be gay in 76 countries.
It is illegal to be myself in 76 countries.
First off the number 76.This comes from a UN report from 2011. If we use a bit of Google we find that the number is currently a bit higher. But the point stays the same, it is illegal for me to be myself in 76+ countries.
Many of the countries have harsh imprisonment laws among other forms of punishment such as whippings. Or worse, some countries have the death penalty.
I can be imprisoned for being myself.
I can be killed for being myself.
Even in the United States it is not safe for me to be myself, there are states such as Louisiana that have had sting operations meant to target gay adults. Not to mention there are still a lot of hate crimes. Even in New York which is a very progressive area, there were a bunch of hate crimes that cropped up earlier this year.
I will stand against homophobia and transphobia. I will stand up for equal rights. Calling someone out for being hateful and harmful is not insulting them or hurting them. A lot of their hateful words have done more harm than calling them a bigot has ever (or will ever) done to them. However by calling people out on these issues hopefully it can inspire change.
Just because someone believes something that is hurtful does not mean they will always believe it. People do have the power to change.
BZPower is going to be a safe place. In fact in order to survive I believe BZPower needs to become a safe place. So many websites and communities are not safe places on the internet. There is a lot of bulling. Bullying has led to so many people committing suicide. I don't want BZPower to be like those places, I want BZPower to be a place where everyone is accepted for who they are.
I care for the people on BZPower, many of them have helped me through so many hard times in my life. Even now I've got great friends who have helped me through things (such as Hurricane Sandy). There are so many times that I've wanted to simply give up, even recently I've been going through some huge depression regarding my situation. However, I've met so many wonderful people here and they have all impacted me in some way and it has kept me going. There have been multiple times in my life where I have been in such dark places, and I've had great friends who have pulled me out of those places.
Let's make BZPower a safe place for everyone. A place where everlasting friendships can continue to be forged. A place of love and peace.
