Update: I am currently more in need of basic things. My ability to walk has only become worse and my car is more important than ever. However, it is now very much in need of some basic maintenance, such as an oil change and replacement of the fuel and air filters. This would would help my worsening gas mileage, now averaging around 21 miles to the gallon, ys the 30 to 35 it has averaged in the past.

I know I am not offering to make potao salad or anything like that, but I hope you will see it in your heart to assist me in working to get back on track. Thank you and God Bless you.


I am a 51 year man who has been through the ringer the past few years. Due to a worsening back, neck and knee condition, I have been unable to work for quite some time and applied for disability 3 years ago. Because I have no insurance I cannot get medical care and that made getting approved very difficult. In May of 2012 I was awarded the disability and almost immediately my was selected for a "random" review and the decision was reversed. I was told I could get interim benefits while waiting for a new decision/hearing. This was welcome as I had been staying in various places after being foreclosed and evicted in May of 2010. After a fall, due to my previous knee problems, present since childhood, I was advised of blood pressure issues and that I was diabetic. Unfortunately I have been unable to secure care without funds and the interim benefits went towards housing, a motel, and food, as my food stamps were reduced. After being advised by a worker at the Social Security window that I had been granted the disability, yet again, I found out my case was still not settled. I only found this out from another Soc Sec worker and not my inadequate legal representation. Another hearing was in June of this year and the Administrative Law Judge was very rude, biased and unsympathetic. He upheld the reversal of my case and my interim benefits ended a few months ago. I am now about to be homeless, again, and the places I have stayed previously are no longer an option. Also, my health seems to be worsening and for many reasons, a shelter would be a literal dead end for me. My 2002 car, my only way to get around is not in the best shape as well and needs some TLC. I appeal to anyone who takes the time to read this to find it in your heart to assist me in being able to keep a roof over my head and work on rebuilding my life. Thank you in advance and may God Bless you.
