Disabled 49 Year Old Female Seeks Housing Grant Money To Avert Homelessness
by Teresa Allen
(Greenville, SC, USA)
I am a single 49-year-old disabled female that recently left an abusive relationship. I now have nowhere to live.
I have had 4 back surgeries since September of 2007. My last surgery was in January of 2011.
I had to have my disk at L-5 / S-1 removed and a rod and screws put in with bone fusion.
I was working as an electrical technician when my disk blew out. I lost my job after returning back to work after my first surgery.
The same disk has blown out four times since September of 2007.
I am in pain most every day and cannot work currently.
I was recently awarded disability and receive $630 per month. They found me disabled since January of 2010.
I was living in my ex-husband's home until Friday, June 30th, 2011. I was being verbally and emotionally abused.
My ex-husband's lease was ending on July 31st and I had to move out of the home. I am now homeless and in need of help.
I am currently taking pain medication, muscle relaxer and a nerve medication all prescribed by my surgeon, Dr. Christie Mina in Greenville, SC.
I receive $630 per month for disability. After paying my car payment and car insurance, I do not have enough money left to afford rent, power, water and food.
I cannot work because of my back injuries.
I am in need of financial assistance for housing and food.
