Disability Grant For Bipolar Disabled Victor To Get Legal And Financial Help
by Victor Santana
(Lehigh Acres, Florida, USA)
Hello, my name is Victor Santana I am a 53-year-old male Puerto Rican. Originally from New Jersey, I now reside in Florida.
I am divorced with three daughters and three grandchildren. I currently live alone.
I applied for military service, but was denied for medical reasons.
I have been diagnosed with diabetes and bipolar disorder.
I also have had my appendix removed and had a steel rod implanted in my right leg.
My diabetes has me taking multiple forms of insulin.
I also have high blood pressure and asthma. Those require five other medications I need to take.
I also have cataracts and dental issues.
I officially get social security disability benefits.
I have always had asthma, but it was not until I had a bout with cancer that I developed diabetes.
My drug interactions make it so that my medications change from time to time.Financial Hardship
I was awarded Social security benefits in the amount of $1300 a month. I wish I could say the amount is enough, but between medical bills, child support and general cost of living, it just is not.
My conditions make it so that I cannot hold a job.
Medicare helps a little with medicine and diabetes supplies, but it does not cover all the costs, nor does it cover dental.
I will also require cataract surgery to retain my sight, which is also not covered.
I cannot afford a car, so I have no reliable transportation. With my leg injuries, I cannot get around.
My diabetes requires a specific diet, which is very expensive.Income Efforts
I currently live off my social security. That is my only form of income.
I cannot physically hold a job, nor could I get there if I could.
I have never received a grant of any kind, nor have I ever got any grants or anything of that nature.
This is my first time trying to apply for any help.
Outside of social security benefits, the only other help I receive is food stamp assistance.Specific Needs
What I require is any grants or financial help that I can get.
I would also like legal advice to help me in my fight against the company I worked for whose chemicals caused my cancer.
Any help with computer working would be good so that way I can work from home.
