Anxiety Disabled Caleb Seeks Help With Getting SSDI And Transportation

by Caleb Shuler
(Point Pleasant, West Virginia, USA)

I am a 35-year-old father of a great son. He will be 10 in July. I also have a great loving woman named Marie.

My issues always get in the way of life with my son and it's devastating.

Disability Issues

I take after my father with my issues. I have always had them as long as I remember. Over the years they have evolved from not being to bad till now when I don't like going out in public.

I've tried my whole life to fit in, and work, but I just can't deal with strangers and other people. It is so, so hard. I feel like I can't take it anymore.

I don't want to die. I have a child who needs his dad. I ask only for the help to even my life out. Disability benefits would be the only thing at my age now that I can figure out.

Financial Hardship

I have just what I need and that is all. HUD helps pay my rent because of my issues, or I'd be homeless.

I can't afford a car for transportation or anything. I can't pay my child support and it just keeps getting higher and I'm scared to death of jail.

I feel like committing suicide often. I worry about just about everything there is in life at this point. A weaker man would lose it.

Worry over bills and shelter over the years has aged me badly. I have had grey in my hair several years now, and I am worried to death over my future health with my heart and others.

Income Efforts

I try, try and try to keep employment but my issues have always done me in.

I have just a few family members that help me. That's it. They can't help much longer themselves because of financial reasons.

I don't know what to do. I really do not.

Specific Needs

All that I seek is Disability benefits to help me cover my costs and needs. I don't ask much, just enough to live.

I have doctors I need transportation for.

My child lives the next county over and I would love to be able to get him. Transportation is a major issue for me.
