I find I need to get things, but I can’t always find them on-line.
First, I have osteoarthritis in hips and knees, with my left knee being the worst. I need a knee brace to support that joint, and while there are plenty out there who use velcro to secure the straps, velcro wears out. I need a brace that uses buckles to secure the straps because I can’t afford to keep replacing the damn things whenever they wear out.
The rest I can find, but I just can’t afford them. They are.
A taller bed frame. The one I have now is just ankle high, and with my arthritis and apnea that makes it hard to get out of bed. On top of which the slats are weak and a number have broken. Something like a futon couch with a steel frame would work a lot better.
To go with a new frame a night table for my cpap would help a whole lot.
Since it’s likely to be a while until I get a better apartment a full sized refrigerator would do me a world of good. As would a counter top oven to make up for the lack of one in my current digs. A microwave is not a substitute.
OTOH, I should be getting the cpap in a few months, when I do I’ll be able to breath better and have the energy to get out and participate in life and lose weight. In addition, at the end of the month I should have a functioning modem and be able to stay on line without getting knocked off by crap equipment.
Last but not least, looks like I’m going to be an employer. Oh, Medicaid pays for it, but I get to do the inquiries and interview, and I don’t know how to do that. So if you have any valid advice—and you live in San Diego—please tell me. Autism is a nasty disability and I know damn well I need help.
Help as you can.
In the better news…
I’m getting a cpap.
Next Thursday I’m getting help getting my apartment cleaned up. With the extra energy I shouldn’t get overwhelmed so easily.
I have to let Beth at the Alpha Project know I won’t be able to afford the rent here. Unless that is I get some timely donations.
In other news season 1.5 of Star Trek Discovery is going to be interesting.
And I just remembered…
Until I have a cpap I’m just not going to have the energy I need. But when I do, gol dang it, Things will get done.
Yep, that’s me.As of July 5th 2017. A little lop-sided I am.
This is the guy who needs at present $10 dollars to bring his bank account back up to snuff. The picture was taken using my Lenovo at a club house I no longer attend. I’ll be starting a new one later today.
Yes, your donations go to support an actual—disorganized—living human being, who will use your money for what he says he will. Cross my heart and hope to die, spit in my eye if I tell a lie.
But please remember that my bank piles on the fees when accounts are over drawn. $35 just for being overdrawn,, then another $6 a work day for each additional day overdrawn.
Which means that come February I won’t have the money to pay the rent, since I’m only getting $910.40 a month and paying $768 in rent.
And keep in mind that we’re talking about San Diego, a city that hates the poor and disabled and would much rather we all disappeared so as not to sully their pristine lives. We’re talking about where the latest outbreak of Hep A got it’s start and which has seen some 20 fatalities at last count. Thanks to the epidemic there have been some changes, but still it’s a prime example of how to be pennywise and pound foolish.
Keep me housed, keep me healthy, keep me writing. Call it an investment and make a donation.
I’m now $6.88 in the whole and I still have the site to pay for this month. The barriers towards getting the money are; The autism with attendant major depression, the apnea—just don’t have the energy, and the arthritis—my knees hurt. I honestly do need your help. Please encourage.
Anybody who says that autism is a joy is an ass. It maybe high functioning autism, but it’s still a pain.
Thanks to my autism I space things. I forget. I go too far and overlook too many things. At this point in time I’ve spaced making sure I have the money to pay for my site hosting, which come in a $9.99 a month. $9.99 I don’t have at this moment. And losing the site at this moment means having to rebuild stuff and losing material.
Please donate and help keep me on line and productive.
BTW, I was going to wax clever and creative but a bad head cold—which could progress into a case of bronchitis, and the stress of getting a sleep study done—I passed the audition, getting help with getting my apartment cleaned up—gevalt does it need it, and. waiting for the cpap once my medico has seen the report and cleared me for it isn’t helping at all.
$15 should cover it, taking care of things like PayPal fees and a little left over for an orange juice or something like that. Please, keep me too busy blogging to get into trouble, donate if you please.
