Please CLICK HERE to visit my GoFundMe fundraiser to learn more about why I feel a service dog would benefit me and for cost breakdowns.
Hello, my name is Danielle and in September 2012, I was diagnosed with a rare sleep disorder called idiopathic hypersomnia. It is largely not understood by the medical community, and there are no FDA-approved treatments on the market. This disorder causes severe excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), uncontrollable long sleep periods, and extreme mental fog. It is not uncommon for me to sleep 18 hours a day, even with three alarms set. As you can imagine, this has caused immense difficulty in my academics, professional, and personal lives. I will finally be graduating college in August at age 24, and will be unable to work fulltime until researchers can find a better treatment for me.
I am extremely worried that I won’t be able to wake up even for a parttime job - a friend suggested the idea of a service dog, trained to wake me up when my alarm goes off. Unlike a piece of technology, a dog does not have a button that shuts it off! Unfortunately, dogs are very expensive to take care of - that is why I’ve created this fundraiser. The goal is $1300 - an estimate of how much it will cost to purchase and care for the dog for one year.

If it’s an accident, that’s okay, accident happen.
But if you fuck something up just to fuck it up. No, HELL NO! Just because we’re paid to pick up your messes doesn’t make it okay to make a mess for shits and giggles. It’s not cute, it’s not funny and it sure as hell not appreciated.
