I'm definitely going to do a few home kits and maybe even a full lab sample before I go apply anywhere.

There's an outfit locally called LabCorp, I think it's under $80. If that's what it takes to avoid a 5 year problem, then that's what it takes. They say 3 months on hair, so I'm thinking I'll shave in two months then wait 3 more. I should be thoroughly upset with the Florida sun by then. My current job sucks in the summer especially, so I'll be ready to leave this chapter behind.

Thanks everyone for the input, in the meantime I'll be working on customizing my Atlas, studying the high road and minimizing my belongings to obtain a storage unit and ditch the room I've been renting.

My mom is going to kill me for making her watch my dog for weeks at a time, but I'll finally be able to buy her that fence for the back yard.

Hay! It sounds like you are making strides to really turn your life around. You have a plan and a fighting sprite and that's half the battle. Keep up the good work.

You mentioned a dog. Some companies allow pets. Most set weight limits, but they're are a couple listed here as anything goes. Someone will be along with a link. I don'the know how to do that. All will require you to leave rover at home while training and some will make you wait some time or miles before you can take him abord.

Good luck.
