I am disabled
I am requesting donations because I have been medically disabled for
most of my life but I have never won a disability claim. I am at the end of
my rope financially and my wife was laid off just before Christmas and has
run out of unemployment benefits. She is looking for work, but it is
pointless trying to find me a job tun less it can fit into my treatment
I was born with a disorder in my feet that fuses the bones together making
it very painful to stand for more than a couple of hours in one spot.
Walking around for work is also impossible without pain as I also have
fybromyalgia. And because of my age and weight and not able to exercise
without severe pain I am overweight now and type 1 diabetes. I am on a few
prescriptions that I can no longer afford because I cannot get medical and
my wife is unemployed. We are stuck with bus transportation because I lost
my Bronco due to expensive repairs that I couldn’t afford to fix. This
situation has been going on for years, and at one point, my wife had a great
job, but no more. Now, we have no money, I get meds and food at the charity
of friends and I cannot support myself or my wife anymore.
We pay $750 in rent. we only have on utility but the electric covers
cooking, lights and heat and gets expensive in the winter. We are a client
at a few food banks in the area but none of them support healthy eating or
diabetic diets. My wife has been looking for work but cannot find any that
is on or near a bus route. And our two room mates are moving out in a few
weeks and if we can’t cover expenses ourself or find room mates that we can
live with, we’ll be out of a place to live as well.
I do have an idea, toward relocating. We would like to do just that to make
a new start somewhere. But we have no money to work with on this. I want to
buy an RV for us both to live in, and be mobile and find where the jobs are
at for both of us (I’m getting sick of our government lying to me about
benefits that I am eligible for.)
Anyway. We don’t have kids, I’m not a vet and there is really no other
reason for us to get the help we need.
If you do donate, thank you and I will try to pay it back someday.
