I am a 55 yo man experiencing some difficulties. I am a Canadian ex merchant navy officer, sailed much with UK fleet and spent much time in the Falklands; who has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and whose ankles are crumbling and awaiting amputation. I have been denied disablilty payments twice as I have no mental disabilty (such is the system here in BC). I am on welfare and not making it. I live in a small trailer in the woods on a little island on the west coast. I am unable to walk far and see little of people. Life is pretty bleak. Enough of the sob story............In order to escape this pit, as I am unable to work at much, and will never taste the sea again, I developed a little local business which has been well received but now faces extinction. I began a personal delivery, pick-up and errand service, using a donated motor scooter, (the Ganges GoFer) for the disabled and seriously ill in my community. I do shopping, prescriptions, etc for a flat $10 fee. It was going well and got lots of smiles until today.........Cops nabbed me for expired plates ($1000) and this sinks me, the service, and any hopes I had to get out of this rut. I will be homeless in a few days, and have run out of work-arounds.........I write quite a bit - sea stories and quantum spirituality for the most part, and would be very happy to share some of them in partial return for any assistance tendered. I am told the sea stories are very good. Putting it out there and hoping for a miracle. I can be reachd at Thanks
