by Pamela Ray
(Gainesville, GA, USA)

I am a 47-year-old white female. I have lived in Georgia all my life. Both my parents are still alive and I am the oldest of three kids. I love my two brothers very much.

I have been married for 20 years and now have five girls and four grandchildren. My husband, children and grandchildren are my life.

Disability Issues

I was diagnosed in 2007 with relapse remission multiple sclerosis. It was total devastation from going to get a simple eye exam.

I have good days and bad days. I can't afford to go to a neurologist because of no insurance so I'm currently not on any medication for multiple sclerosis or for the pain that comes along with having it.

Financial Hardship

I am currently going to a family clinic for small things like colds and things of that nature, but there is not a doctor there who can help me with my disease so I get depressed.

I still have one child at home, plus the usual bills like utilities, rent, things like that.

Income Efforts

I currently received $1,182 a month SSI.

My husband works as a carpenter when he can, but work is sporadic. Some weeks he works a full week and maybe the next week it could only be a few days. So we barely keep our heads above water.

Not having insurance when we need it puts an added burden on us.

Specific Needs

I am looking for any kind of grant that would help us.

I have no credit card debt.

I really don't know what kinds of grants are available for someone with my disease.

I can't work so I really have no idea what else to do.

I would like to have some kind of insurance because I not eligible for Medicare until 2015.
