10 0
I would love 2 get involved in Something. I've been bed-ridden and unable 2 to go out [even 2 the grocery store] for over a year now. So if it involves me needing 2 do store trips or post office trips, or ANY out of the house trips. I'm out. I am very poor financially, & am all around depressed. U ALL sound so upbeat & enthusiastic [just like I used 2 sound] & happy & content[same as I USED 2 sound]. I WAS the Happiest Person I knew. Always smiling & sharing, laughing & caring about everybody. Now I'm in pain, and for the past 6 [almost 7] years now, I have steadily, slowly at first, I tried not 2 give in or be defeated. Now I feel alone, abandoned, beat-up & down, In Intense Physical Pain and Emotional Despair. I've reached out 2 Churches 4 Help. ALL of them from "TBN to Camp-Meetings on INSP" and all they did was send me a "Donation Envelope" telling me 2 "Buy-A-Miracle"!!!So I was just wondering if there is anything that I can do 2 be of assistance 2 anyone else??Thank You & God Bless,Gina Corser

And let me give you a little advice dear. Do not call these tv ministries. They are in existence solely to profit. Speak to someone at a local church and you will get some assistance be it some help with food or clothing. Some will help arrange for housekeeping as well. Your local church should be the place to get in touch with. I know ours around here do a lot of good things for those who need it. Our priest comes to my grandmothers house to give her communion every week. They will do what they cant or give you better advice where to seek assistance.

I would also check with your local family support office, or something like Lifeskills. They can usually provide info on local resources. I wish you the best.

I recommend searching online for forums of like-minded people. It has helped me :) Take responsibility in your situation and it will give you a feeling of control and ultimately will become an important tool for you.
