IN 2008 I WAS DX W/SCLERODERMA AND IN 2009 HAD A STEM CELL TRANSPLANT AND I AM ON DISABILITY. IN 2010 MY 21 YO DAUGHTER HAD A BRAIN HEMORRAGE AND HAS PERMANENT BRAIN DAMAGE AND I HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF HER AND BE RESPONSIBLE FOR GETTING HER TO DR APPTS...AND I DON'T DRIVE SO EITHER HER DAD OR GRANDMOTHER HAVE TO TAKE TIME OFF WORK TO GET HER THERE...AND WE PAY FOR ALL HER MEDS...WHEN WE CAN BARELY AFFORD MY MEDS. WE HAVE APPLIED FOR S.S. DISABILITY AND HAVE BEEN DENIED A COUPLE TIMES AND ARE IN THE APPEAL PROCESS. MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS THINK IT'S AWFUL THAT WE CAN BARELY PAY FOR MY MEDICAL BILLS AND MEDS THEN ALSO PAY FOR HERS WITH NO HELP FOR HER. IF IT WASN'T FOR "OBAMACARE" SHE WOULDN'T HAVE ANY INS. AT ALL AND PROBABLY WOULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN THE CARE SHE NEEDED. I KNOW THERE ARE PPL ON S.S. DISABILITY THAT SHOULDN'T BE BUT MY DAUGHTER ISN'T ONE OF THEM! SHE IS 23 YRS OLD AND WILL ALWAYS NEED MEDICAL/EMOTIONAL CARE....SHE IS NOT THE SAME GIRL SHE WAS, WE GOT HER OUT OF THE COMA AND ABLE TO WALK AND TALK AGAIN BUT HER BRAIN HAS SEVERAL DIFFERENT PROBLEMS AND ALWAYS WILL. WE JUST WANT SOME HELP WITH THE BILLS AND THE GOVERNMENT IS BEING EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO DEAL WITH...EVEN RUDE AT TIMES KNOWING WHAT A HARD TIME MY FAMILY IS GOING THROUGH, THEY CAN BE A BIT NICER! SO BASICALLY I'M JUST LOOKING FOR SOME EXTRA SUPPORT TO HELP US IN OUR QUEST TO HELP OUR DAUGHTER HAVE A DECENT FUTURE AND NOT BE HOMELESS WITH MEDICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES. THANK YOU...THE LATIMER FAMILY.
