Bipolar Disabled Single Mother Seeks Grant Money Help To Avert Deathbed Crisis
(Rochester, New Hampshire, USA)
My name is Melissa, I am 40 years old female. I am single. I have two beautiful daughters ages 14 and 17.
I suffer from anxiety, bipolar, posttraumatic stress, attention deficit and obsessive-compulsive disorders.
Bipolar and anxiety are the primary obstacles in my life. It is difficult for me to even go to the grocery store.
I do not do well in crowded places and have had panic attacks in the past while in public.
I currently receive both Social Security and Social Security Disability benefits. My total monthly income from both programs is $694.
I am struggling immensely with housing and transportation. Due to my disabilities I am not able to live in a group setting such as a homeless shelter. I also would not do well in a roommate situation.
These issues coupled with my very low income make housing an urgent and detrimental problem that seems hopeless.
I stay in a bug-infested motel when I can afford it and sometimes sleep in my car.
Just recently my transmission started to go in my car, and the heat stopped working. Sleeping in my car will not be one of my options very soon.
Although I do receive income in the amount of $694 from both Social Security and Social Security Disability, I desperately need financial help.
It is hard to suffer from mental disabilities and have the added burden of homelessness and hunger.
Stress tends to trigger my bipolar and anxiety conditions and my financial situation is extremely stressful.
I am slowly becoming agoraphobic. My comfort zone used to about 40 miles away from my hometown, and now I find it hard to leave town.
Eventually I will not want to leave my dingy motel and then perhaps I should make myself a deathbed and sleep away the insanity.
