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.

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.
