Right now my funds were cut off from unemployment. I am trying to find a job after finishing medical transcription school without much luck. Although I love my parents very much and wouldn't hurt them for anything in the world, I can't afford personal grooming products (hair color, hair cut, etc), my meds or doctor's appts. My car is not running so can't go anywhere and am pretty much stuck in the house every day. Also, the neighbors are so damn nosey and with they would look in the mirror because we need no more drama here. No reason to get too excited.

Sometimes it seems that life is a real bitch. Answers are lacking while problems abound. Are you in contact with the school where you learned a job skill? Thay may have an employment section. Being broke is tough. Have you checked your local welfare department. Food stamps are available. While work at home advertisements are often just a scam, you might find work at home in your field. Even though you were sut off from unemployment benefits the department is still available to you for job openings. Check out CraigsList. You might even find work through commercial employment companies, sometimes employers will even pay the fees that are charged. For grooming, there is a group that will help you. There may be a group in your town. One such group is named "Women in Need". Please don't give up.

It's pretty sad that you can't even get a few dollars after changing colostomy bags, cleaning, cooking, emptying buckets of urine and endless loads of laundry (and bullshit). Thanks for letting me vent. Excuse my french, but am getting at the end of my rope and avoid going nuts by all means.

My husband was addicted to doc visits on the way home from an appointment he would be planning the next one to the same doc because he had not asked all his questions when he was there -I finally just cut back when I found out we had gone to over 100 doc visits in 9 months some were 6 in one week and at times 3 in one day-now after the fact I let him get away with too much nonsense for years I did get a little smarter over the years and before he died he did get to see a stronger me.

Ruth does your Mom have assets -you are POA so you could use her money for her care-if she has no assets could you apply for Medicaid -that is what it is for -a this point maybe it is time to place her so you can work-which is important because you need to think about your old age and you will need SS someday for yourself-many elders think they need to hang on to their money so they can leave it to their children and do not consider how hard it is for their children to give up heir lives to care for them-look into taking CNA classes so you can get paid for taking care of her-think about placement it may be the best over all.

Cessna, I think you have more resources within you than you recognize.

Anyone who can build a Cessna from a pile of balsa wood is someone who is very creative and determined. Let those very positive traits be your guide, think positively and you might find that solutions others are suggesting are more realistic than you think.

Ok, if you are saying that you are a veteran, have you tried to get help through the veterans website? Have you been to a veteran's hospital?

Most large counties have a hospital that is well known as the County Hospital, that sees indigent patients as well as the well-insured and everyone in between. The county Health Department may be able to help you out with medical care. The website was cut off my post regarding the low cost Cymbalta, but there should be enough information there for you to know that they can help.

Sometimes, it just seems like the load is too heavy to bear and we find it easier to just give up. That is the time pull yourself up by your bootstraps and try again. Ask a neighbor or friend for help if you need someone to advocate for you due to the fact that you are deaf. Good luck.

I think you should turn that considerable talent for making a plane out of balsa into income - you could make money at that and pull yourself up from your apparent destitute financial situation.

Why don't you contact model plane associations, and volunteer to teach a class? Or post an ad in a model plane magazine or on similar website and offer your services. You have a talent; make the most of it.
