53 Year Old Disabled Woman Seeks Housing Grant Money For New Home

I'm a lady living with disabilities and needing to buy a new home. I have high blood pressure, heart problems, and I am a Type 2 diabetic.

I have what the doctor calls ulcers on my hands, legs and arms. I live in an area where the heat really makes them worse.

I also have problem with my lungs that is called COPD.

I don't have any money for a down payment and not sure where to turn for help. My credit is bad and I can't afford to pay a credit repair company to clean it up for me.

It seems that everything takes money and I just don't have any to speak of.

I want to try working from home, doing data entry but don't have the funds to get started with a legitimate company.

I have been turned down so many times that things aren't looking good for me at all.

I have been battling depression for the last 10 years which is how long that I have been on Disability.

I'm not sure how to put my story down on paper, as this is the first time that I have even thought of doing it.

There are days that I don't even like myself or want to get out of bed because I hurt so much so working is out of the question except for some I can do from home!

Well we have come to the end of my sad but true story.
