Disability Benefits For Parkinsons Disabled Husband To Get Debt Relief Help
by Andre Desmarais
(Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA)
Many years ago, I met a young lady of 23 years of age. She came to South Florida for a two-week vacation and soon after her arrival I met her on a blind date.
We dated for two years before getting married. During this time I learned that she had been abused sexually from the age of three.
She was 16 by the time she found the courage to get the help she thought never existed throughout her ordeal.
Her school suffered and so much. Every night she dreaded going to sleep for she knew that her father would be coming for his sick need.
We got married and love was great but the medical bills started to grow.
She constantly needed a counselor, a neurologist and her family doctor, for constipation and depression.
Lab tests always came back good so doctors did not know what to think.
Thank God we had a house increasing in value, which allowed us to get a second mortgage for refinancing, which included the credit card.
I was getting some good bonuses at the time, which helped pay the bills. But for many years past and up to the present I have been in the red in regard to money.
We always made by it by refinancing the mortgage to include all the credit card balances. It worked while the economy was booming. By 2001, we started having real problems financially.
The market took a dive and my investments plummeted, including my 401K, my IRA and my house, which was my main investment.
By then I was unable to pay most of the maxed out credit card bills without refinancing. Hospital bills, medicines, and doctor bill kept on coming.
My wife never kept a job because of what happened in her past, according to doctors.
The final straw came when I found out that I had Parkinson's disease. Throughout the years, the disease worsened until the company I had worked at for 40 years let me go and told me to apply for social security disability.
I did and I have been approved for $1764 a month. I will also be getting about $1000 from a long-term disability insurance for the next five years.
I had to sell my house because I could not make the payment. Stating next month I will be getting about $700 less in income than I have in expenses even after I trim the expenses to the max. I need your help.
Thank you for listening and for any financial aid for debt relief you can point us to.
