51 Year Old Vision Disabled Man Seeks Government Grant Money For Fresh Start
by Mark A. Ellis
(St. Charles, MO, USA)
I am a 51-year-old married man that is need in of help. A government grant or anything similar is what I'm looking for.
I worked in a factory until 3 years ago, when my right eye went bad due to an eye disease called keratosis. I have had 3 cornea transplants during this period.
I have been treated (ECT everything) for depression since the 1980s.
I worked for 30 years in a factory until the eye issue. While waiting for social security to go through, my bills have been adding up.
I finally was awarded social security disability last fall.
My eyesight not good enough to read the fine tools that we used at the plant. But through this my depression got worse worrying about finances.
Even though I have bad eyesight in the right eye, the judge gave the social security because of depression and what I had gone through.
They are taking money out of my social security check for taxes. My wife works and they are taking out $1000 a month from her check for the same reason.
My truck was just paid off, and I made arrangements with my credit card company for monthly payments, which is the only debt I have.
I am just looking for a fresh start and try to get on with life possibly getting our own place in a few years.
We had a house in 2005 but had to sell it due to finances.
Thank you for reading and for directing me to any government grant money that might help us out.
