fixed income

What's your take? (click here)

Dentures Needed

I'm desperate for help. I am 55, totally disabled and use a wheelchair. I live on a fixed income that barely covers rent and food. All my teeth are gone. I'm in dire need of dentures on the top and on the bottom. It's near impossible to eat. I've lost over 100 pounds. I can't afford dental insurance or even payments. Is there help for me? I live in Hastings, MN.

HELP! My home is literally falling.

I am a 69 year old widow trying to raise a teenage grandson on a fixed income. My husband left no insurance and little pension. Even with SS, to make it through the month without overdrafting is almost impossible. My problem is this: My home is falling apart. There is a gap of at least 4 inches, maybe 6 inches on the south end of my home. The floor is cracked through the entire house. I hear timbers splintering when it is quiet. I am afraid my home will fall in on us. BUT I cannot afford repair. I have asked my congressmen for some direction to no avail. Is there a way to get some help? I have never asked anyone for anything other than lower lunch rates for my grandchildren (I had guardianship of 2 grandchildren until this year). Is there any help out there? If someone has an answer, please advise me before my home is rubble. AND that won't be long. In MS we have extreme heat and extreme cold which causes the earth to heave thus causing foundation problems. PLEASE let me know if there is any help out there.

I would like a home

Hi there I am 54 and dissabled and as everyone knows, I live on a very low fixed income. I was living out of state when dissaability stoped me in my tracks. After years of trying to survive I was unable to make ends meet so came to Idaho and moved in with my parents. You can imagine the inconvenience for all involved. I am wondering where to turn in getting a low interest loan for a place of my own with payments in my budget. Any suggestions? I would be very appreciative for any help. Thanks

About mandy13

I am a single mother with one child. I get no help from the father. I am also on disability. It is very hard to make ends meet. I need help. I don't know what to do. I think about going back to school. But it would be very difficult physically. Then how would I make it to work. I just pray everyday that I would find a way to have more income.

PTSD Veteran needs dental

PTSD Veteran with major teeth problems. For over 20 years I have avoided seeing a dentist due to my PTSD symptoms/anxieties.  I have been in therapy (psychiatrists, psychologists and VA couselling) for many years for agorphobia and numerous major phobias.  With alot of work grocery shopping is possible for me to do.  I am new with computers and came across this sight while browsing the internet for PTSD related information.  I need a dentist asap...I am in pain both my lower and upper teeth have either holes or plaque built up.  In the past year I have lost three teeth and one molar is broken with pointy jagged roots protruding from the gum where the crown of the tooth used to be/I also wear a partial from a cleft palate repair was done on me in 1982 (partial falls down whenever my mouth opens more than about an inch wide.  I am in so much pain from eating or even when a gust of wind touches my teeth.  I have been afraid for many years of people and of being out of my bedroom.  I only get $895 a month from diability and am begging for financial help to pay for a dentist.  I went in and got a consultation and two root canals are needed to save my two front upper teeth; extractions; partial reconstruction to add the missing teeth on it.  If anybody can help...even just a alittle.  Please help

About Lioness424

I am needing help to relocate from Florida to Ohio to be with my terminally ill mother.  I am a widow on a fixed income.  I am not looking for a loan fom overseas! 

I will take any help I can get, maybe a volunteer who could load my belongings & drive them to Ohio, even a monetary donation would be appreciated.  I can eventually pay you back any money after I am settled in Ohio.  I do recieve DIC from the military but what with paying my current bills I don't have anything extra for the move & I don't know how long my mother has.  I am not asking for free money, just an HONEST caring person or persons who will help.


Thank You for listening,

About JudyinTexas

I am a 60 year old grandmother in Texas. Recently my disabled daughter and her two young sons (ages 5 months & 5 years) moved back home with my Husband and I, running away from an abusive marriage. My husband and I live on a fixed income set by social security. The return of my Adult daughter and her children have placed a great financial burden upon our living situation. My Husband and I have fallen a month behind on our rent and utility bills. As we are constantly now paying our rent late, we are paying even more money than our monthly rent due to exuberant late fees. We are facing the disconnection of all of our utility services. We have investigated local resources for help, but funding has been very strapped due to so many people also needing help.

If my Husband and I could just get caught up current on our rent and bills, This would be a miracle. I have taken a part time job caring for an elderly woman in her daughters home, but I myself am disabled with torn rotary cuffs in both of my shoulders, and some days feel as though I could use some one to care for with the extra income we are not able too make any headway.

We have always provided for ourselves, even while raising 5 children. Now in our senior years we find ourselves needing help, and our adult children choose to not help us, or really cant help us as they say. If there is a miracle out there for us, a months worth of help would be a blessing that we would never forget.

Please Some Angel Help My Daughter and Son

Hi everyone. I'm not asking for much, anything will help. I have no money for Christmas and have a little girl who will not understand if there are no presents under the tree Christmas morning. She is 8 years old, but due to many mental issues she is only about 5 mentally. She loves barbies and play horses. My son is 17. He has told me he wants nothing this year except for his baby sister to have a nice Christmas. While this fills my heart with joy, it also makes me sad. He deserves something special too. He's a typical teenager with a huge heart. He loves art and music. Anything anyone could send to help my kids would be wonderful. A gift.... a wal-mart gift card.... ANYTHING. Please if you can help contact me and I will give you my contact information. Thank you for reading this and God Bless.
