Home Ownership Advice And Grants To Help Fibromyalgia Disabled Woman
by Corrinne Belanger
(Elgin, SC, USA)
I am a 40-year-old female currently residing with my mother.
My live-in boyfriend of six years decided to move on with his life with another woman and I couldn't afford to go anywhere else to live.
I am disabled by numerous medical issues. These include, but are not limited to, fibromyalgia, severe spinal stenosis, neuropathies and myopathies, debilitating migraine headaches, and chronic fatigue.
These conditions have caused a lot of problems for me. It got to the point where I had to quit working and go on disability.
I also had to start taking a wide variety of medications.
These issues have affected my personal life, as I am no longer able to do the things I loved to do like pursuing my career, camping, hiking, etc.
These disabilities have also affected my finances. I had to use all of my savings and retirement money in order to receive medical care.
As I stated above this has totally wiped out my finances. The only income I receive is a disability check once a month.
I am having problems buying food and gasoline. Maintaining my vehicle so I can go to and from all of my appointments has been difficult.
This has hindered me from finding my own place to live. I had to move in with my mother. She is now trying to sell her home and move out of state.
I can neither afford to rent a home nor afford to purchase my mother’s home from her. I also cannot afford to pick up and move any other place, especially out of state.
I have no one who can loan me the money I need to live on. No one is willing to co-sign a home loan for me since my income is so low.
Also, no one is willing to even help me financially to move to any place other than where I am now.
I am seeking advice on what I should do, including advice on how to purchase my mother’s home so I can live independently and not become homeless.
I am also looking for some help regarding how to obtain financial assistance so I can afford to maintain my vehicle.
