Diabetes And Neuropathy Disabled Single Mom Needs Housing And Moving Help
by Maria Medrano
(Los Angeles, CA, USA)
I am a 51-year-old diabetes and neuropathy disabled single mother with a 10-year-old daughter.
I lost my home when my husband died and I have not been able to get back on my feet since.
We need help with housing and I have gone everywhere to apply and have not been able to get help.
Staying here and there is not what I want my daughter to experience. She needs a more stable atmosphere.
I have severe diabetes, which has me often in and out the hospital. I have diabetic ulcers on my foot causing me to walk with a cane.
I also have neuropathy in my feet and hands.
These ailments make it even harder to find housing.
I am dependent on Social Security and welfare and it is barely enough to live on. Because of my limited income, I am rejected right away by apartment managers.
I would like to work but my disability interferes in my efforts. I am always looking for help and I do look for donations for food at local churches.
I need help with housing especially in the area of moving fees. I need a permanent place to live.
