Depressed Air Force Veteran Seeks Government Grant Money For Debt Relief

by Tim Cline
(Lake City, Florida, USA)

My name is Tim Cline. I am married and an Air Force Vet. I recently lost my primary job and I'm now only working a part-time job.

This Christmas was one of the worst in a long time. I have a triple wide mobile home and ten acres of property that we have worked so very hard to keep.

Back in 2005, I lost my mother, which sent me into a terrible depression that lasted four long years.

I could not get out of bed and could not stop crying for weeks on end. She was my best friend.

I was to go to Indiana three days before she passed away, I had already bought a plane ticket and had my bags packed.

I felt hopeless and nothing anyone said or did could make me feel better. Needless to say during my illness the bills kept piling up and we got behind on everything.

My wife and I have worked hard through these tough economic times. We do not know whom to turn to for help.

It is a major struggle every day. We're lacking money, food and just the basic things it takes to get through life itself.

Sometimes my depression flares up and I don't know what to do. I no longer have health insurance, so I can't get the medication I need to cope with everyday life.

We're falling behind in every aspect of everyday living. What should we do? I don't want to be one of the 30,000 people that lose their homes each month to foreclosure.

Please help us or guide us to someone that can help. Our ship is sinking and we need someone to throw a rope to us.

The Government says how they give away billions each year. We are good taxpaying people that need a little of the money that they give away, or even a small loan that we could pay back.

We just need help. We are proud to be Americans. We just want to keep what we have worked so hard to obtain. That is my story. Please help us.
