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.
In Feb. I’m hoping to get a used MacBook. When I have a MacBook I won’t have to put up with Microsoft’s shit any more. Along with a better computer I’ll have working wifi and be able to get serious about publishing on-line for once.
I’m also getting in home assistance to compensate for my autism. Somebody who’ll help me get from getting overwhelmed. Getting the cpap also means I’ll have more energy to work with.
But back to the MacBook; Thanks to the Alpha Project I may have the money for it, but you are quite welcome to help with the investment. I may get help with the rent here, and if the word I got was good I maybe moving to a better place sometime in the near future. A place with a real kitchen for one. If you do want to help with the purchase you can use the donation button below.
In addition, with the cpap I should be able to go to a clubhouse just up the street so I won’t be as isolated as I am now. Here’ hoping.
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.
