This is hard for me to even do….but I’m lost at what else I can do.
I was raised if you needed something to work hard and do or get it yourself… My dad taught me this and this is actually to help the both of us. My dad who was in military for 15 years was discharged due to being hurt leaving out with only 10% disabled( as they put on paper) his disability pay is very low. Then he worked at a department store and became department head manager ( bc he always worked hard and did things right ) but can only make so much money to be able to save any money for the future. Decades later about 3 months ago he all the sudden started hurting and within 24hours seen someone go from hard working to hardly able to walk or get out of bed. He can’t even bend over or down. He went to his chiropractor and she did a x-ray and was lost at words at how he had even been working before. She asked him for his medical records from military and found that the problem started in 93 but since they didn’t rate the injury the military got away with giving him only 10% so they didn’t have to pay much money to him. His chiropractor is not happy bout this bc if this would have been brought to attention long ago my dad wouldnt be having the problems he is today..now he has used all his savings and isn’t getting enough money to pay bills. I live with him to help him on a daily basis bc he can’t lift or bend he is now having to walk with a walker. I would get a job to pay the bills and put food on the table but there would be no one here to help him bc he is so limited in movement someone has to be at home with him so me getting a job is out of the question so that’s why I am turning here asking for help. We don’t even have a vehicle accessible for him to get in bc he is a tall man he can’t get in a low car. Anywhere he needs to go is also very hard for him. It breaks my heart bc he is getting depressed and worried bc don’t know how we are gonna pay for food or the house or utilities bc we need all them to maintain. I’m desperately asking for any donations to help us. Till he can get all the medical stuff done to help fix him we are stuck with no help and nowhere to turn. I don’t want this man that faught for our freedom and safety and worked hard to pay bills and make sure his kids didn’t need for nothing lose everything he has all bc the military didn’t make it known of the problem starting in 93. I’m asking for any help of donations to help pay bills ,put food on table(food stamps isn’t enough to last all month), and if can get enough donated an accessible vehicle. My dad doesn’t know I’m doing this bc he doesn’t like asking for help. He has always done everything on his own. He keeps apologizing to me for helping him on daily things and starts crying saying he feels so helpless. I keep reminding him there is a difference in being helpless and needing help there people wanting to help you and that’s ok we all need help sometimes but yet he still keeps apologizing. Please help us I am trying to do all I can to make sure he doesn’t lose everything he has and that he doesn’t lose his self. Please help…. I’m sorry for even having to ask for your help. Thank you
