I'm sure you get thousands of emails a day all with the same story everyone needing help in one way shape or form so really mine is no more or less important nor is my
need any greater than anyone else's however at the end of the day I find myself more frustrated than i was at the start of the day and no closer to finding any sort of
help in my time of need. I am 38 years old and live in Ohio, I haven't been able to work in 9 years due to a job related injury and more recently in this past year because I've just been diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension in the right side of my lungs which has resulted in Congestive Heart Failure in addition to this I was also diagnosed with Erthromelalgia which is a rare blood disorder which has no current course of treatment and does not have a cure but is debilitating and very painful not to mention embarrassing and live altering. I have struggled for so many years trying to get by doing everything I can to make ends meet, selling off my belongings which mind you after losing everything twice after getting hurt at work didn't leave me with much. I have ten thousand dollars plus in medical bills and going up, I spend my life confined to my house during the day because the Heat is too much for me and can induce a flare from my blood disorder within in minutes, aside from the my doctors just recently determined what my heart condition stemmed from so I've barely begun treatment so most days Im too sick to do anything just walking from one end of the house can be too much. Meanwhile i've been denied disability by my insurance prover Cigna and my appeal so I had to refile I was denied temporary benefits despite my doctors putting me at 100% disabled until further notice. I have been denied by every assistance program I have applied for because I don't have children, I have no income and barely have a roof over my head. At one point in time friends and family were helping me here and there but all of this has not only cost my my relationships with them but I have given up on myself and a system that was put in place to help people like me. I have bills to pay like everyone else i want for nothing really i just want to be able to pay my car registration so I don't get another ticket and lose the only means of transportation i have to and from my doctors appointments and to get my medications etc...right now I stay with a friend, and up until I became ill i would help with her 15 yr old son in exchange for room and board. But now that i am unable to do this she needs me to find a way to help with a bill or two. I could go on and on but honestly what good will it do everyone's story is the same I have no one to turn to for help and i have no where to go should my friend have a melt down and kick me out which she has done in the past. All this stress is really making my illness that much harder to cope with tell me, where does a 36 yr old single woman who has no children but is 100% disabled due to a serious medical condition go to to get a little help while waiting to see if disability will agree that her condition is serious enough that she can not work and grant her the right to obtain her disability benefits so that she can try to resume a more normal functioning life. How can I stay positive and believe in myself when everyone else has stopped believing in me turned their backs on me and left me to go through this alone. I want to believe that there is someone out there who can help me but everyday another door gets shut in my face I get told "sorry can't help you don't fit the profile" and that's supposed to make me want to get up and keep going tomorrow. Give me the tools and i will use them, point me in a direction that will result in something positive for once tell me to try something i haven't already tried and I will, I just can not continue on hoping for the best, there has to be some organization or someone out there willing to help someone like me. I don't want something for nothing I'm more than happy to give back where ever I can provided I'm well enough to do so. I am not an abled bodied person sitting on my behind waiting for my monthly check when I could be out working, trust me I would give anything to be able to work again. I am a very sick person who's just needing a little temporary help. please help me find that help thank you for taking the time to read my letter

This is pretty extensive as far as the help you need. Looks like includes help for medical debts, paying rent, and just a general focus on health and medical care. Why denied disability? Anyway, we think review the primary site to get help with bills. Yes, do not really strictly on friends, as money is very sensitive issue among people, friends, and family.

Hi! I desperately need rent money for at least this November. I am disabled with Multiple Sclerosis and I am going to be homeless SOON. Next week if I can't get $800.00 to my Landlord ASAP. My gas got shut off, but all I am worried about is being out on the street. I don't have any close family. I just keep praying hoping my words will be heard. Thank you for listening. I am 33, diagnosed with MS at 22. I am so grateful for everything I have been blessed with. But a lot of tests and medications and pain and can't walk unassisted. But I am SO grateful... Stay true to yourself and your soul will smile :)

I need help paying my rent and my utilities until my husband and I are able to pay these things on our own which hopefully will be in 6 months to a year. I am the only income in the house and I do not make a lot of money. We are waiting for an answer from the SSA about his disability determination. We also need food assistance because even though we do get SNAP benefits- it is only 75 or so dollars currently for both of us.

To Whom It May Concern:
I’m desperately in need of help as my full disability was denied! I am being evicted from my residence and have nowhere to go. I have been seeking aid from everywhere since 2013 and with my recent denial from social Security I am at my wits end. Social Services is helping me with food but recently has been denying me with help in other areas such as housing. I am already suffering greatly and don't want the added pressure of being homeless. I continue pursuing these other avenues but need some immediate assistance with this latest denial. Please help me!

Hi, My name is Rainy Suggs and I am a single mother who needs help paying the rent and electric this month. I was working on a project that ended and haven't been able to find work yet and then I was denied disability. I live in Woodstock, GA 30189. Is there any list of people who can help me, or I can reach out to? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Rainy
There is an appeal process with the social security administration. Each state and city has offices that can help try to get benefits. Find more details on appealing social security disability.
