PLEASE IF YOU CAN, EVEN A DOLLAR SENT WOULD HELP ME WITH MY MEDICAL BILLS FOR THIS NEXT 29 MONTHS. I'M IN A SITUATION WHERE I STARTED WORKING AS AN STEAM ENGINEER FOR THE COUNTY OF ORANGE FOR LESS THAN 3 YEARS FROM MAY 2010 TO MARCH 2013. I DEVELOPED AN UNKNOWN NERVE DISEASE IN MY BODY, WITH SEVERE SPASMS, PAIN AND LOW BLOOD PRESSURE PROBLEMS; ALONG WITH DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE AND HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY DISABLED FROM WORKING. I EVEN ORDER MY FOOD FROM THE INTERNET BECAUSE I CAN NOT STAND MORE THAN 10-20 MINUTES, NOR SIT UP MOST OF THE TIME MORE THAN 2 HOURS. I WEAR BRACES ON MY BACK AND NECK, USE CRUTCHES TO HOLD MYSELF UP. I EVEN BEEN TO UCLA, LONG BEACH, ST, JUDE, WHITTIER AND UCI HOSPITALS AND DOZENS OF SPECIALIST, DIAGNOSED BUT MY MEDICAL CONDITION CAUSES UNKNOWN. I TAKE THE STRONGEST PAIN, MUSCLE RELAXERS AND NERVE MEDICATIONS. I WAS NOT ABLE TO FILE WORKERS COMP BECAUSE MY CONDITIONS ARE UNKNOWN AND PROGRESSED OVER MANY YEARS. WHEN YOU WORK FOR THE COUNTY WE DO NOT PAY INTO SOCIAL SECURITY BECAUSE WE FULLY PAY FOR OUR OWN RETIREMENT WHICH YOU HAVE TO HAVE AT LEAST 10 YEARS TIME IN; I ONLY REACHED LESS THAN 3 YEARS. SO I'M ON A PERSONAL DISABILITY INCOME, NOT STATE SSD OR FEDERAL SSDI WHICH I DO NOT QUALIFY BECAUSE OF THE COUNTY TIME I WORKED NOT PAYING SOCIAL SECURITY. ALSO DO NOT QUALIFY FOR OBAMA AID AS WELL UNTIL MAYBE 2018. SO MY MEDICAL DISABILITY IS CLASSIFIED AS NON-JOB RELATED, I BEEN AROUND CHEMICALS, WORKING ON DANGEROUS AND HEAVY DUTIES OVER THE YEARS MAINLY AS A POWER PLANT MAINTENANCE/OPERATOR WORKER 1980-1985 & 2004-2009; AND MAINLY A PLANT OPERATOR 2010-2013/WITH EMERGENCY MAINTENANCE. I AM FORCED TO PAY AT LEAST $650 TO OVER $700 A MONTH MEDICAL COVERAGE THAT IS HEALTH INSURANCE NOT FROM MY JOB, BECAUSE COBRA IS $819 AND TO KEEP MY JOB HEALTH INSURANCE IS $803 PER MONTH AND BOTH COUNTING CO-PAYS, DEDUCTIBLES, ETC... WOULD BE AROUND A $1,000 A MONTH AND THAT IS NOT COUNTING SPECIALTY TYPE TESTS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR HELP. I AM SORRY TO ASK THIS FROM STRANGERS FOR HELP, BUT OUR GOV'T LETS DOWN THOSE OF US WHO ARE REALLY BAD OFF. I TALKED AND WROTE TO EVERYONE IN THE COUNTY, GOV'T AGENCIES FOR HELP BUT MY SITUATION IS IN A CATCH 22. IF I STAY DISABLED MY PRIVATE DISABILITY INSURANCE THROUGH MY JOB ENDS AT AGE 65; WHICH MEANS I HAVE NO INCOME OF SUPPORT TO LIVE COMING IN FROM AGE 65-66.
