Caroline, Disabled And Wanting To Work
I'm a 45-year-old accident disabled woman who's survived many things, including cancer. If I could get some job retraining government grant money, it would change my life!
In 1997, I was hit by a bus that missed my head by inches. However I got slammed into the ground, with my knee ripping apart leaving me disabled.
It's only through the grace of God that I am able to sit up and walk, although barely. I live with pain everyday because I refuse to take pain killers.
I have a high tolerance for pain, but I still cry at night due to it and because my knee still locks. I live with it, though and I thank God for the many blessings of life that I do have.
Two years ago, I separated from my abusive husband who also left me in massive debt, overweight, diabetic, with high cholesterol and losing my teeth and depressed!
I'm very determined though to take my life back! Over a year ago, I quit smoking and changed my eating habits to keep my diabetes and high cholesterol under control!
I've also started a workout regimen and been blessed with a stationary bike from my mom. She's also my main care provider and thank goodness for that, because home care is a service I know I cannot afford to buy.
I live on a set income that's less than $1000 a month. My goal is to go back to school to be self-sufficient enough to pay my bills. My biggest dream is to become the first first Polynesian woman as a supreme court justices.
I would also like to open a charity/foundation called "save a smile" to help those who can't afford to have nice teeth or that have been abused in their relationships.
I've always worked hard and given help not only to my family members, but also to anyone else who has ever needed it. I'm used to being a caregiver. However this time I'm the one who needs help!
If there is anyone one out there who can help me get some job retraining government grant money? If so, I want to first say thank you and reassure you that you won't be sorry for putting your faith in me.
