Disabled Veteran Seeks Grant Money To Survive Wait Period For Disability
(Wilmington, North Carolina, USA)
I have been suffering from PTSD for years now. It's getting harder and harder for me to work on a public job all year long.
My VA doctor through FMLA has made it where I take time off from work every month. I feel like I'm being mistreated at work because of it.
I toss and turn at night with flashbacks of things that happened while I was in the military.
The doctors have just diagnosed me with sleep apnea. Now I have to wear a mask on my face at night to get rest.
I have been out of work for almost two months now for on the job stress. I can't go on like this.
I went and filed for social security disability three weeks ago. They told me I would have to be out of work for about a year to get SSDI.
I don't have the money to last a year. I went to my local VA office to talk with a counselor about getting 100% disability from the VA. I was told I have to be out of work for about 6 to 7 months to qualify for it.
If I could borrow about $8,000 my family and I could make it for seven months. This would give me enough time to get the disability I need from the VA.
Even if you can't help, please pray for my family and me. Thank you for anything you can send our way.
