Hey all....just checking in. I'm sorry I haven't been around. For those of you I promised

Hey all....just checking in. I'm sorry I haven't been around. For those of you I promised to do searches for....I just haven't been able to. I hate breaking promises, but I haven't had much of a choice. The best place you can start a search for resources on your own is 211.org, then enter your zip code.

To my friends....I hope you're all doing well. I spent 42 hours straight working on my place this weekend after my help didn't show up :(
I fell off my truck and hit my arm pretty hard...so I'm having trouble with some of the stuff I need to do. I am feeling a LOT better though. My cough is almost completely gone, my strength is coming back, and my energy is up. After 42 hours of work I slept for 14. I've only been awake for 6-7 hours now and getting ready to head back to sleep for another 5 before taking on more work here. Just because I'm not around that much right now doesn't mean I don't think about all of you. Please keep in touch and I'll do my best to reciprocate. :)

If you send me your zip code I'll see what I can find for you.

What type of assistance are you looking for? I'm happy to find links for you, but I need to know what your needs are.

I only just now saw any posts from you. Try not to be discouraged and understand that most of us here are going through very rough times and can't always log on or spend time on here. Personally, I'm usually on multiple times a day, but this week has been crazy.
I see that a few others have offered to help, and I will also gladly run some searches for you if you want to give me your zip code. Or, you can go to 211.org and enter your zip code there to pull up a comprehensive list of assistance programs and organizations in your area.
Best of luck to you.

Ok, well you don't live in my state, which is where I would have been able to put you in touch with agencies specifically addressing your concerns. However, I did research a little and came up with these websites:
http://www.pbhab.org/
http://www.cilo.org/
http://www.gulfstreamgood...
http://www.gocpg.org/hous...
http://www.abletrust.org/...

And this one may help with transportation issues until you find a vehicle...

Here is a list from the yellow pages online under the category of Disabled Persons Assistance Services

I wish you the best of luck and am sorry it took so long to get back to you. Please let me know if any of these work out for you.

Hello friends. I'm just checking in really quick to let y'all know I'm ok and not meaning to ignore anyone. I have been crazy busy and haven't been receiving my notifications....so if I've missed any messages please don't think it was intentional. I will try to catch up with everybody soon. For now, I have help with working on my place and we've been getting a lot done, so I want to be sure to focus on that so I can make the most of it. Please take care and feel free to message me again if you have previously and have not received a response. :)

Well...not what I had hoped for. Just talked to the guy at the Salvation Army and he said they cannot break my voucher. I was hoping he could split it into 4 $25 vouchers but no such luck. And, to add to the difficulties, it has to be used by the end of the month or it will expire and they will not issue another one for 18 months (whether I use it or not) :(

So, I will spend every single dime of it helping people....maybe not so much for my son (may have to find a different way to get his clothes) but someone in need will benefit.

SICK OF THE CENTER

I don't know if this will help you at all but I have a friend here in Michigan who recently won a precedent-setting case revolving around the same types of issues you are dealing with.
She had a baby by another man while she was legally separated but not divorced from her abusive husband. Because they were still legally married at the time her daughter was born the state recognized her daughter as being legally his and gave him full rights to her. Even while he was going through a trial initiated by CPS to terminate his parental rights to their 4 children because of physical and sexual abuse, the state's position is "a bad father is better than no father."
After a very long hard battle she won a case and set a precedent to have him excluded as the father and her daughter was declared (as sickening as the terminology is) a bastard child. The biological father will have nothing to do with her and the state refused to pursue paternity case against him. But despite the nasty label this child is now safe from the harm we all know would have come to her had the ex-husband been allowed to retain rights to her.
I know the situations are different but the law is beginning to recognize the need to adapt to the times and allow biological parents their God-given rights to their own children despite outdated beliefs that a child born in a marriage belongs to both the husband and the wife. I don't know if you have legal assistance available to you, or if you can navigate your way through legal research but if you could find the case I mentioned (which I will not be able to help with any further because she and I no longer have contact) you may be able to use the precedent set here in that case as a foundation to build your own case upon.
I wish you the best of luck and hope your daughter can grow up feeling the love you have for her.

Hi Taylor. I wasn't on much today (or yesterday I guess considering the time) so I didn't see your story until now. Did you find any help? I noticed annie46 had spoken to you....she's good about getting people what they need.
If you haven't found help or still need it let me know and I will see what I can come up with in your area.

Trinices

We probably won't agree and that's fine. In your post to her you mentioned that's why women kill themselves. The thing is in the last 6 months I have been through every major crisis you can imagine and many that wouldn't even cross the minds of most people. From the news of my dad's impending death and spending every other week at the hospital with him to losing my job, then an illegal eviction and lockout which left my son and I homeless with nothing but the clothes we were wearing, to a custody battle over him that came out of nowhere considering his dad has never wanted anything to do with him even when I begged for the first 7 years of his life for him to get involved and paid him to spend time with him, to my son being kidnapped once and attempted a second time, to moving in to this shithole trailer that was all I could get after being denied multiple times for any type of assistance anywhere, then that caught fire the second night we were here because of an improperly installed water heater, to the state levying my bank account for back taxes that I couldn't pay and didn't have warning of because of the illegal lockout, to my mail being illegally re-routed back to my former residence which also caused me to lose my license after someone else got a parking ticket while driving my car while he was supposed to be fixing it and never getting the notices, and most recently being extremely sick and in the hospital with pneumonia which was so bad that I broke my rib and tore muscles from coughing so hard. I could seriously keep going with even more but I think you get the point. And all of this after a lifetime of verbal, emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. Trinices came out of nowhere and the first post she made was to call me selfish for feeling discouraged that the one and only time I was approved for any type of assistance it didn't work out. I was not even on here the rest of the night to reply to her or see others' replies to her. I felt kicked by her while I was down and that's the last thing I need too. I can admit that some of my words were harsh but would hope that people here could offer a little leniency considering the struggles we are all facing. That was my only negative experience on here and I don't really think it was all that bad. Because the whole thing got so blown out of proportion and because it was out of character of me to respond the way I did I reached out to offer a "fresh start." I still feel as though she was wrong, but as I just said, we are all struggling and a little leniency means a lot when someone needs encouragement. I do hope she returns and I hope the whole mess can just dissolve so everyone can move forward in a positive manner. As for anything anyone else said, I cannot speak for them. Some of it I would agree was out of line and went too far, but I can also appreciate it because they were trying to defend me and that meant more to me than anything material I have received.
Anyway, I hope you, trinices, or anyone else who felt offended by the whole mess can let it all go and just be here for each other because that's what this is all about. And I would like to extend my apologies and offers to help anyone I can to all of you if you ever want to take me up on it.
Good night to you all and God Bless.

Isn't it sad. She's such a sweet and helpful lady and I felt so bad for her. I have lived in several mobile homes and have never once had my pipes freeze until now. And I know that it is my own responsibility to maintain them. Too bad everyone else is so rotten.
