Holding On

I'm still holding on.  Sara called Sunday to see how I was doing.  Almost convinced her I was going to make it.  Hell, I can't even convince myself.  She's upset that she can't help me.  It's not her place to support her failure brother!  Still checking on disability, but everybody says it takes a year to get it.  What do I do till then?  My right hand is getting worse.  Handwriting is ridiculous.  Have to write very large to be able to read it.  Found a place online to apply for assistance and have filled out the forms.  Maybe I can get some help.  I'm tired of this!

I don\'t know you. I\'m in a pretty low place myself, but your post here touched me. I sincerely hope you can resolve your problem with disability sooner rather than later. I will hope and wish for the best for you. Sending positive thoughts your way...

Hang in there Mike, you\'ve already come so far and worked through so much already, it\'s a shame to slide down now. You have friends here who care very much for you and your well being. I\'m low on money too - $700 to my name and bills coming in - I worry constantly about keeping my roof over my head. I\'ve had to cut off all spending and redo my budget. Last month we had a surplus of $68 when all was said and done. I know how you\'re feeling.... we all go through these things. Much hugs and kisses, Deb :o)

My son figured out for me why I just am in such a hole and feel I cannot make it financially..talk about depressing..I make HALF the amount needed to just pay for the neccessities.. no wonder I feel so stressed and worried and have to go without needed things so much..getting older is SUPPOSED to be easier, ISN\'T IT ?
One thing I know though that although I cannot do this...I see no way possible to make it..I\'m hanging on till the end Mike..all we can do is TRY..do what we CAN..and until thrown out on the streets with nothing more than a paper sack..we HAVE TO hold on tight and not let go!! We are on this ride together..it is scary..but let them pry our hands off kicking and fighting from the bar that holds us in our seat..we won\'t get off willingly ..DON\'T EVER FOLD!! DON\"T YOU DARE EVER GIVE UP!!
