 in response to helpinghands...   

i can truly relate to what your asking for. Just a little help from anybody especially the from the ones who can actually give it.

My mouth is in terrible shape. I have gum disease and have been trying and looking for help with the finances of paying for it.  My life situation at the moment prevents me from being able to work.  There's no such thing as a free dentist that I have found just yet.  But we should never give up because just when we think we cant take it anymore - something changes - it may take a day - a week - a month or even longer - but i do believe things will change and for the better.

I know thats probably not alot of help to you but my prayers will be with you.  Thats about all i have at the moment but praying does seem to help me and i hope it will help you too.

Good luck and let me know if you find the help your looking for

Dear Helping hands,

I am so sorry that you and so many more like all of us are going through such pain, shame, and needless embarrassment.  Our crime?  Each is different!  We have been accused of being druggies, and deserve what we are now reaping.  The only drugs in my life I have taken have been  prescribed by a doctor or dentist!  We have been accused of not brushing, flossing and seeing a doctor regularly.  I did!  Our diets we neglected.....it goes on and on.  The sad part, those same persons will most likely wind up with the same problems  as their lives evolve!

We as Americans NEED a NEW Dental Insurance that is more practical and research what is called Cosmetic Dentistry.  We need to know the statistic of how many persons have actually DIED, or indirectly DIED from blood poisoning and what other cruel occurrences that can happen by having to endure pain, infection and abscesses from rotting teeth!

It is true....we can go to a hospital and get patched up and sometimes it runs into thousands of dollars.  And how many persons are given dentures and caused further problems due to not fitting right?  The condition of our teeth effect how people look at us.  How seriously we are taken, not to mention our self esteem.  It's hard to stand up in front of a group and make a point when everyone keeps looking at your teeth or lack of them.  Or how about the dentures that FALL out at times like that?

This is serious, and it is no laughing matter!  We need More service like NFDH !  National Foundation of Dentistry for the Handicapped.  It is my understanding that it is ran my dentist who contribute on ongoing basis.  They have like a year or so waiting list!  By that time some of our gums have shrunk and had bone loss to!  Which I have recently learned that that can prevent you for getting the implants that you needed.

What does it really take to make a difference enough for change to happen?  Any thoughts or ideas?  Who CAN and KNOWS HOW, Please feel free to jump in at anytime and help us help ourselves.  PLEASE~........SANDAV1

I'm so sorry things are so bleak right now, but you remember you have your children  to hug and kiss good nite, even if its in a sleeping bag on the street. Kids will usually choose a parent or parents give the choice between them and the streets,, I will be praying for you..  Kids want to be near their parents..  God sees a the big picture I don't and believer me there have been too many times I almost said forget, don even pray for me. I won't go into my stories but some of them are posted in some of my posts..  

I pray that God will bless you abundantly for your needs, and that you will have peace that goes beyond your understanding....

Hello, my name is Denise and I am 21 years old. I am looking for a grant for college because my mom can't afford to send me because the tuition is high and the Pell Grant and TAP is not enough. I want to enter into a University for an undergraduate degree in Computer Science. I never really had a child hood because I was always sick with sever chronic asthma and I did not finish high school because of it. I have been feeling better now for the past four years now and I took my GED and passed it. Now I am in the process of taking my SAT exam. All I want is help to pay for college because since I didn't have a chance to go when I was sick I want to take advantage of my life now.To let you know a little about myself, I was diagnosed with asthma at 10 month and I suffered with asthma until I was six going seven and it went in remission. When I was 13 my asthma came back and it was really bad. I was in and out of the hospital to the point the hospital was my second home. I had to drop out of school because I was too ill. I was home schooled for a period of time, but even that couldn't help because every time the teacher came I was not will enough to study. Eventual at the age of 15 I was sent to a nursing home for children in Bay side Queens, New York because I was too sick to stay at home and needed close monitoring. At the age of 16 I had one of my worse asthma attacks which lead me to pneumonia. I was incubating. Had a chest tube (because my lungs lack air support) and I had to learn how to walk again. At 17 I was intubate aging for the second time and went through five more pneumonias. After having the right doctor and finally getting the right medication for me, my asthma started to decrees. Now after four years now I have been better and getting stronger. Sometime I still have my days when am under the weather, but besides that I am better than ever. The reason why I want a degree in Computer Science is because when I was sick I was always home or in the hospital and all I had for entertainment was my computer and being the only child for my mom computers became more of an interest to me, especially when it came to building network and how it ran or how it was processed. If there is anyone out there who can help me to find a grant for college beside the Pell Grant and TAP I will so much really, really appreciate it.Thank You

In response to Butterflygdancer:

Whistleblower Statutes:
        Whistle blowing occurs when an employee tells a government official, upper-management authorities, or the press that her or his employer has engaged in some unsafe or illegal activity.
        Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989 protects federal employees from discrimination by firing.
         False Claims Reform Act of 1986 requires the whistleblower who discloses information relating to a fraud perpetrated against the US government to receive 15-20% of the proceeds if the government brings suit against the wrongdoer.

Title VII & State Laws: Civil Rights Act of 1964—
    No discrimination in employment based on race, color, national origin, religion, gender, disability, and age. (Gender DOES NOT INCLUDE sexual orientation. Title VII applies to employers affecting interstate commerce with twelve or more employees, labor unions with twelve or more members, labor unions operating hiring halls (to which members go regularly to be rationed jobs as they become available), employment agencies, and state and local governing units or agencies. A special section of the act prohibits discrimination in most federal government employment.
       Minnesota law covers all people who are employees and does not discriminate on sexual orientation.
      
      Sexual Harassment: Court interpreted statute. The two types of sexual harassment are Quid pro Quo and Hostile environment.

      Quid Pro Quo is that something in exchange for sexual favors.

       Hostile environment harassment occurs when the employer knowingly fails to take steps to remedy an abusive work environment by taking a tangible employment action. “The workplace is permeated with discriminatory intimidation, ridicule, and insult, which are sufficiently severe or pervasive to alter the conditions of the victim’s employment and create an abusive working environment.

       Remedies under Title VII: If the plaintiff successfully proves that unlawful discrimination occurred, he or she may be awarded reinstatement, back pay, retroactive promotions, and damages.

     --Compensatory damages are available only in case of intentional discrimination.
     --Punitive damages may be recovered against a private employer only if the employer acted with malice or reckless indifference to an individual’s rights.
     --The statute limits the amount recovered for damages from specific employers (ranging from $50,000 against employers with one hundred or fewer employees to $300,000 against employers with more than five hundred employees).

Disparate Treatment
--1. Plaintiff is a member of a protected class.

 --2. Denied something.

--3. Qualified/not to be fired.

--4. Other member class gets the benefit. Disparate Impact
--1. “Neutral” Rule.

--2. Disportionate impact on a class.

Your sworn affidavit of facts on the complaint is a start.

In addition, is there any witnesses--most likely not if he was trying sexual harassment in violation of Title VII.

True, that it may be hard to prove, but filing a complaint will haunt him or her if another person files a complaint.

Talk with the other employees--past and present, especially the bosses and get their names and contact information.

This is a start!

In response to Butterflydancer--contact and file a complaint with the EEOC because you might not be the only person to be harrassed by the boss.
