How did you find a shelter that allowed more than a maximum one night stay and I need some tips on what to put in your car for sleeping there, too, if possible.  And what about mail?  Just need one's tips who has actually been through it like we are going to be.  It sure would be nice to have a bit of a map to go through this unchartered territory my daughter and I find ourselves in.  Thank you.

You deserve to feel sorry for yourself, not many others will, right? You be here by this time, you do  and then you wait and wait . Anyway I had my little fit , now, let's see if we can't help you out.

Try www.hud.gov/improvements/index.cfm , section 203(k) , www.floridahousing.org

Under www.hud.gov look for 14.123 mortgage insurance-housing in older, Declining areas 223(e)

14,122Mortgage insurance-Homes in Urban kRenewal areas 220 and www.hud.gov/offices/hsg/mfh/progdesc/progdesc.cfm  , you can check out www.cfda.gov

To improve your property  www.hud.gov/offices/hsg/sfh.title.ti_home.cfm look for 14.142 Property improvement

and

www.oup.org  to find out if your local college has a program to fix up houses

See if any or all of those will help you and if they say they don't have the money, ask them what if you can give them the information to get the money.

I did not think I could on aidpage.  Having a severe pain day and there are times I think I am going to go crazy...My bathroom floor is rotted and I am terrified. 65 years old- on s.s. disability. cannot find any help.

this place is in terrible need of repairs-I know other people have it worse, so i guess because the pain in my legs and feet are so bad today, i am feeling sorry for myself.    thank you for reading this.

Good morning   Unable to rest due to unpaid bills looming over my head.  The job outlook isn't good either. But I know there are people worse off then myself. It only myself I have no children at home. I worry cause my room mate is disabled and depends on my help. I work through my state as her home healthcare provider. But the state of Oregon has budget problems. And my room mate is on a  program that gives her help. But as of July31st all people on this program will be cutoff. So that means she will have no help. I of course would never not help her. Her only hope is to be put on a different care plan. So yes this also leave me out of a job too. And it set up that the client picks you as their home healthcare provider. Unless you put ad on say craiglist  for a job.  I just try to keep the Faith that it will all work out. I have applied for help with my utilities but the list is very long.  Soon my phone will be shut off. I need it for  jobs I have applied for. But the company wants their money and I understand that completely.  Please  everyone have a good day

See you in the morning and hope the days get better for all. Tonight and it is 1:30AM my cat decides to run through the mini vertical blinds as a cat was outside the door earlier. He is fixed and I got up this morning and one feel out of it's slot. Now, I know who is doing this him and he is fixed but acts like a wild one..Better try to get some rest and hope he leaves the fan cords alone. He really needs a harness and learn to walk on it and someone can take him out for a walk. LOL like he let anyone put anything around his neck and body..

Just one more thought before I go back to packing, has anyone read "Captains and the Kings?"  I remember almost freaking out years ago when I first read this and thinking, man this is totally plausible, but really... when all of the loans for all of the money is called in, who really has it?  It actually is supposed to be a dramatic novel which might even be considered kind of "chicky" by some, but by golly...

I just wish I could reach out and hug everyone with their heart wrenching stories and help them with the words, "It will be OK."  I have been known to be a bit of a spitfire, but I can be soothing, also.  And that spitfire comes back out when I say let us all be in agreement and band together and shout, to paraphrase an old movie:  "We will make it!  As God is our witness we will all make it through this!"  And for those realizing much of this is financial woes and find no comfort I just wish I could yell up at the sky and make the heavens rain down money.  If there is no other comfort, hopefully we all can find at least one thing to be grateful for.

Hi

Have you been gettig regular disability checks each month? I wish I knew if you would get it. I get some disablity check but from the government I use to work for the post office and was let go due to leg ulcers. 

Can you put wishes in at wishuponahero.com

 http://www.wishuponahero.org/

You can put three wishes up there at one time. Read the wishes there to see how people word them and who gets choosen I was told when I put a wish up..

Good luck

Hopefully someone comes in and is getting disability and knows more

sometimes it takes the right person to see this and some are retired or working part time or full time so they are in here later. Or they have doctor appointments and will see this later

Good luck
