We needed a new faucet installed because our old one was leaking. Our Landlord told us to hire a plumber and take it out of the rent.Cliff refused to hire a plumber, and let a friend do it for free. The new faucet doesn't work right and Cliff took 0 off the rent.Now he's angry at me.Now he wants to leave me. That would be great, only I still don't have any money to pay the rent and bills.What's the use? I give up.Pray for me.God Bless You All.

Hi

Gosh you could get a note from your doctor that you need these medicines! And I don't know why they wouldn't help you then.

Where I live everything is on the same bill and I only have electric. they don't reduce the electric but they cut the garbage, water and sewer in half. Every little bit helps. Sometimes they don't tell you everything you can do. I have learned that I have to ask everyone if they will give me a discount for being disabled.

Schmidty,

Thank you so much for your input.  I've never had to reach out or even inquire about getting help before. I'm grateful for your response and suggestion; I am going to check the website.

Also, I was so excited to get a response.  May you receive many, many blessings for being so thoughtful.

Cheryl

 in response to jaybird2010us...   Wow.  That to me is totally unacceptable.  Some one ought to look into this charity.  How could a charity assume such a thing.  Shame on them.

Hi folks. I wish I still lived in the pacific northwest. I used to volunteer out there and people were terrific. We helped people with everything! They had this huge outdoor food pantry. They helped people with rent right on the spot. But here there is nothing. The charities here look down on you like you're gonna gonna spend anything they give you on drugs or booze. There was an article in the local paper about it and this charity director was saying that they believed that 80-90% of recipients of charity were poor because they spent all their money on booze and drugs and tobacco products! "That's how they got into poert" He said. Unreal but true! That's why they won't help you. One place wanted a list of all my meds. When they rejected me their reason was "applicant takes prescibed pain medication. Our policy does not allow us to help you because of your presciptions potential for abuse. Please reapply when you no longer take this medication and are willing to submit to urinalysis". Does that strike anyone as odd? They are all that way here.

Last night my little boy asked me if I was going to die. He knows how sick I am. He wonders why I don't play with him as much as I used to. This sucks you know. I have to win this battle. My son is only 5. I love him so much. I've gotta keep this roof over his head somehow

 in response to dangerous544...   Did you apply for SSI. Diabetics is one of the qualifying conditions. If they denied you get an attorney and reapply. Most counties have a tax assistance program but it has to be filed between January and April 15th. You could do it for next year. If you are qualified as disabled and can prove it then you can get the county to reduce sewer,water, garbage. You might be able to get some part time jobs that would only be a couple of hours a day through the department of aging and disabilities.  For medications you should be able to get most of them on medicaid or medicare which ever you qualify for however, check out needymeds.com they give you many options. You just select the one you want print it off and have your doctor sign it then mail it in.. If I need more specifics i could help more. Is your son disabled in anyway if he is he can go to vocational rehabilitation and get assistance finding work. Let me think about it. Send me an email and I will answer.

I recently wrote breifly about mine an my wife's problems, but since then things have only got worse. There have been son many scammers,it makes me wonder if there is any help. I am now on 11 different medications and my wife 5. She's still recovering from breast cancer surgery and now I'm going to have to have surgery then radiation. She was denied for disability, WITH CANCER, she was denied. You see in North Carolina you can't get approved for disability unless you're over weight or knee that hurts. I guess they figure something like cancer will kill you before all the appeals. We have fell even farther behind on our bills. We need help.

This is Susie's son. My mom has not been able to be up for the pass few days, so I was checking on her blog for her. She is awake, but has become very weak. The doctors are trying some new medications, so we are praying and hoping for the best. I am trying to get her a laptop so she can go online, but until that happens, or she regains her strength I will be posting for her. She really misses being able to talk to everyone here, and being able to post her daily inspiration. Please, remember her in your prayer, her faith is strong but her body is weak, and she desires to be up and feeling better soon. Thank you for checking on her.
