Assistive devices and save my shelter home
My emergency need is to save my shelter by paying the taxes that I owe and prevent it from being auctioned off.
Then I need to repair the home to make it livable.
I lost my right hand below elbow with brachial plexus injury. In the same near-death traumatic accident my left hand was also split in two but was operated and now have a limited grip due to plastic joint in my ring finger.
I went thru' divorce immediately after accident !!!
My rehab was a long struggle but I trained myself to work again.
GOD and DOG my best supports besides my parents, brother and sister-in-law.
Although I am US CITIZEN I have not been on disability but last five years I could not find employment due to tough economy, disability and age. I have been surviving by doing odd jobs although I worked as Manufacturing Engineer before! Since my house needs repairs and electric power and water is cut off due to unpaid bills, I am living with friends.
Currently going thru vocational rehab process to seek gainful employment. Meanwhile I am trying to survive!!
i leave my pride at the door and ask for help
