Disability Benefits To Help Accident Disabled Dad With Vehicle And Home
by James Teate
(Martin, Georgia, USA)
I am a 45-year-old father of a 14-year-old daughter who turned 14 January 5, 2013 and is coming to live with me.
I was always a laborer or automotive mechanic.
I was in an auto accident back in 2003. I broke my neck and have had two operations to repair it with no success.
I am in constant pain and I can't lift anything. The left arm always feels like its getting shocked with electricity. It gets worse as the years go on.
I have applied for disability benefits and been turned down three times and have a pending case now.
My medical bill each month is $350 plus this month I was in the hospital for five days with a bleed inside. I was passing blood through my bowls.
They never found it but I was four pints low on blood. Now on top of that I have constant stomach pain. I had a colonoscopy and a camera down my throat too.
I have a lot of medical bills and don't have an automobile. I need a car to transport my daughter and myself to where we need to go.
I also would love to get a home for us. We are currently living with my mother and she is on a fixed income and she helps all she can.
I need help paying for my mental health meds and my and pain meds.
I did try to work for a year or two after my accident but couldn't keep a job because of days off for doctor appointments, surgery, medication and pain.
I am working to get disability. I have a lawyer (Myler Disability).
I will take any help I can get. I would like to get a grant to get a car and any medical I can get.
I am a very good person who is just down on his luck. I will take any and all help I can get.
