Bipolar Disorder Disabled Grandmother Seeks Grant To Open Own Hair Salon

(San Antonio, TX, USA)
Hello. My name is Tracy Webb. I have three beautiful sons and several grandchildren.
I've been married twice and now live on my own in a small apartment.
I graduated from a GED school. I wasn't very smart; I couldn't sit still long enough in class.
I always had a goal though, and that goal was to get out of the country house that I lived in with my parents and work in own my own hair salon.
So I left the town I lived in called Adkins Texas and moved to the city of San Antonio. I went to the Vogue College of Cosmetology, and landed a job at a place called Great Clips.
I worked there for about four months. Then I worked in warehouse assembly lines. After that, I had other jobs like waitressing and daycare.
I always had a problem being bipolar. The medicine, symptoms or sometimes my attitude would bother me. One way or another, I would get fired from the job.
Bipolar disorder is a difficult thing to live with. I often have outbursts. I have bad mood swings. I lose weight and gain weight.
I know that I am a hard person to live with. The medicine that I take helps me out a lot. It keeps me stable, and I dream of opening my own business.
I try to stay focused in church as well as outside of the church. It keeps me sane and positive. I love to write and often do so to ease the pain around me.
With the opportunity you have given me, I will try hard to succeed. I want to own my own business. I am going to have my own hair salon and my house, because I have prayed for it. Amen.
Thank you for your time in reading my story. I appreciate everything. And God bless whoever is trying to move forward with bipolar disorder or any other illness.
Don't let anything get you down. If it does pray, and there will be a better day. This is our year and I'm not giving up. Amen and thanks again.
