Disability Retirement And Debt Relief For Bipolar Disorder Disabled Kerry
by Kerry Mills
(Kearney, MO, USA)
I am a 51-year-old mother. I have two boys 20 and 25, two stepsons, 34 and 32.
I also have three grandchildren: two boys 10 and 7, and a granddaughter that is two years old.
My husband just bought an Australian puppy.
I just had a nervous breakdown and now have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder at age 51. I had a difficult time at work. I believe that caused my episode to occur.
I was hospitalized three times. Finally the medications they gave me seem to have got me under control, but now I still am not able to think that clearly. I am scared as what the future holds for me.Financial Hardship
I spent money I didn't have while I was sick. I am still working but I do not know how long they will keep me.
I have a lawyer I cannot afford who is putting me in for Disability retirement. However, management has already made clear that my job is on the rocks and retirement benefits might take a while.
My husband has insurance but I do not know how to pay for deductibles and co-pays. I do not know how to pay for everyday expenses.Income Efforts
I am working my full-time job till I get disability retirement.
I got a part-time job to work on weekends.
I only have my husband I have no other family that can help me.Specific Needs
I would like suggestions and or help in seeking benefits, grants, SSI, lawyer, advice, sympathy, etc.
My current lawyer is a huge financial burden and I do not know how we will pay off the credit card we are currently paying them on. I need to know if we can switch now.Business Idea
I do not have a current idea for a business idea at this time. I am open to suggestions as to what I would be able to do in my present state of mind.
I would like to know what type of work at home I could do without it costing me money to get in.
