Almost Homeless

Wilson G (Oregon):

We are behind on rent $500 and $1400 is due on the first of October. No way to pay either of those. We are also behind $1900 on our car loan- with an upcoming payment of $655 due on the last day of September. I am communicating with them as best I can. EWEB bill we have our last notice stating we will have a shut off within 14 days and that was a week ago. Car insurance is due on the 24th of this month- for 186.00. We are in debt up to our eyeballs due to my medical issues interfering with work in this last year.

I am currently awaiting the start of a new job. Until that job- we have no income to assist in bills, aside from the 80% disability- which is enough to pay rent (which we are also behind on because I was out of remission this last year, and that forced me into unemployment) I suffer from sever ulcerative colitis and with that, the symptoms keep me from working. I was in remission and had a flare this last year that took me out for months and with that we’ve yet to catch up. I am seeing a new doctor and am on new meds as well as headed to the VA for a 4 year review. I’m hoping they realize the severity and grant me 100% disability. I am hoping to maintain this new job until I start winter term. I’m using my Voc- Rehab and attending our local university. Voc rehab will give me plenty of help and resources so as to insure I succeed, taking account for my disability.
