Anxiety Disabled Caleb Seeks Help With Getting SSDI And Transportation
by Caleb Shuler
(Point Pleasant, West Virginia, USA)
I am a 35-year-old father of a great son. He will be 10 in July. I also have a great loving woman named Marie.
My issues always get in the way of life with my son and it's devastating.
I take after my father with my issues. I have always had them as long as I remember. Over the years they have evolved from not being to bad till now when I don't like going out in public.
I've tried my whole life to fit in, and work, but I just can't deal with strangers and other people. It is so, so hard. I feel like I can't take it anymore.
I don't want to die. I have a child who needs his dad. I ask only for the help to even my life out. Disability benefits would be the only thing at my age now that I can figure out.
I have just what I need and that is all. HUD helps pay my rent because of my issues, or I'd be homeless.
I can't afford a car for transportation or anything. I can't pay my child support and it just keeps getting higher and I'm scared to death of jail.
I feel like committing suicide often. I worry about just about everything there is in life at this point. A weaker man would lose it.
Worry over bills and shelter over the years has aged me badly. I have had grey in my hair several years now, and I am worried to death over my future health with my heart and others.
I try, try and try to keep employment but my issues have always done me in.
I have just a few family members that help me. That's it. They can't help much longer themselves because of financial reasons.
I don't know what to do. I really do not.
All that I seek is Disability benefits to help me cover my costs and needs. I don't ask much, just enough to live.
I have doctors I need transportation for.
My child lives the next county over and I would love to be able to get him. Transportation is a major issue for me.
