My biggest frustration - need advice

I am a kidney transplant patient. I'm in a CPR class and we had to do an exercise on giving breaths for as a fallen adult.


I tried to do the exercise and couldn't bend over far enough to do the exercise. My instructor was very nice and patient.

Me on the other hand got very frustrated. This incident brought me back to reality, It is certain things that I can and can't do.

Can you give me some advice on how to handle this situation? I know that in a real emergency I need to be prepared.

Not getting any help, while there are others running businesses and collecting

SSI is a joke, they give people who are able to run businesses disablitly checks all over webster county kentucky, but I will end up homeless. Hope the man that made this decision chokes on a chicken bone.

Lack of appropriate accessible housing

by Miss Louise Bradbury
(Dukinfield Cheshire England)

I am 42 and have arthritis in my knees back and feet after jumping through a window years ago when we had a fire.

I have had 3 operations on my foot and am constantly on morphine.

I live on my own in a three bedroom council house. I am confined to my bedroom most days as I can’t get up the stairs.

I found a 2 bedroom ground floor flat for private rent. I need the extra bedroom as my 8 year old daughter stops with me at weekend. I applied for help with deposit and first months’ rent and was refused, so I lost the flat.

I have also applied for a grant for a stair lift which was refused. I weigh 19 stone and have a wheelchair downstairs and a mobility scooter which I only use on a Tuesday when my son and his friend come and get me up and down stairs.

The rest of the week I’m in bed.

I feel like I’m banging my head against a wall and am becoming increasingly depressed with my situation and don't know who to turn to.
