First Christmas in 11 years

I'm writing this because I don't know what else to do..11 years ago,I finally found a Dr to surgically correct my hereditary ear disorder by replacing the bones..he told me,and put in my file he used plastic..I found out last month,and after many procedures,that he used titanium..I,as well as my daughter and grandson (who now has this condition and is 2),suffer from extreme nausea and vertigo..Minears disease..and for the last 5 years,seizures..unexpected seizures that makes me never want to leave my home..the Dr gets to say he never knew me,never operated on me..never lived in my state,never had a license in my state..his profile,and his partner,who remembers referring me to him,former patients,the staff all remember him...I will never forget him,I can pick him out instantly on the neurological centers group photo he works for in Scottsdale,Az...


We were evicted from our beautiful home,had no money..I went from 3K per month to $750/mo disability..every birthday and holiday spent away from my daughter,now my grandson..we lost everything..our pets were put to the streets,we had to leave at that moment to live 2 hours daughter was pregnant and had to sleep on a basement grandson was a month and a half premature,he was in NICU for a month,and because I was homeless,CPS stepped in and said if she doesn't go live with her abusive father(she hadn't seen or talked to him in 10 years) that they would take her son..she stayed with him for a year..I had been homeless until a friend offered me a trailer he had for sale for. $4,500. It's been over a year,I won't be getting a settlement..the Dr won't sign off on my student loans..he won't even write me a prescription for a nausea medication because I am allergic to Antivert and Compazine..he knows I have extreme seizures and still won't help..this is all in my files...


I will be like this until the day I die. 


This is the first Christmas my daughter and I have been together in 3 years..there's not much food (we get paid once a month next week),no presents..we don't know what will happen next,but we couldn't be any happier..


If I could pay off my student loans,the fear of losing my disability check will disappear..if I could pay for this trailer,my daughter wouldn't have to worry when something happens to me,and,my rent would be $100/mo cheaper ..if I could buy her an inexpensive used car with a years insurance,the 11 years of walking in Michigan weather will be a distant memory..she always walked beside me,afraid I would fall or have a seizure in traffic,we have her son now and the winters here are brutal,although,not at the moment, know Michigan weather,give it a minute,it will change..we don't even have winter coats..


I never thought I would have to post something like this..I have been turned down at every agency..even tried to donate plasma and couldn't because of the seizures..I have no friends or family..


The Dr denying he did this is the straw that broke my back..he ruined me..he ruined my daughter..and now my grandson is suffering because of this..I could ask for the money to get dentures as well..I throw up so much my teeth are falling out..4 in the last 6months..but I just want help with these things..please..I will die like this..there's no help..I have been everywhere..


Yet,I bet the Dr likes Scottsdale..I lived in Phoenix's beautiful..I bet he doesn't have to look for pop bottles to buy his kids dinner..I bet he is having an awesome Christmas...
