Grants or loans for disabled persons

kevin started this conversation

I am a victum of TM. I am disabled but I like to be as active as I can be. I am looking for grants to start a small business. Also needing grant money or loan to take care of the growing expencives that's associated with becoming disabled.

I would like any help I can get.

Transverse myelitis (TM) is a neurologic syndrome caused by inflammation of the spinal cord. TM is uncommon but not rare. Conservative estimates of incidence per year vary from 1 to 5 per million population (Jeffery, et.al., 1993). The term myelitis is a nonspecific term for inflammation of the spinal cord; transverse refers to involvement across one level of the spinal cord. It occurs in both adults and children. You may also hear the term myelopathy, which is a more general term for any disorder of the spinal cord.

I which I still didn't say that I think that disabled isn't always mean unable it one part of your body cease to function correctly then the others overcompensates for the lack of. I am trying to regain my life and my work ethic to not be a dependent. But to get a small business going is almost totally impossible as things are now. What can be done to ease the burdens faced by adversity dealt to those that weren't looking for it.

But I glad that I don't appear to be disabled b/c of the stares and laughter from the normal working class...who are the one's making is hard to survive and continue in life with the facts being that we can't do what we used too.I really hate it when I can't looked down on b/c of what I can't do and not for what I can do.

I went through the whole SS process and can explain to you what to expect. You first apply get turned down automatically, then you appeal then you get turned down automatically then you get an attorney and they take it from there. The process took one year, which is very rare usually after your attorney files the second appeal and turned down you get a date about a year later for a hearing. This is the one you make your appearance. I got lucky and was approved by a review committee after the date a year later was set. The process is designed to weed out the insincere but it takes its toll on the real cases deserving of consideration. I would like to advise you to get all your records in order from the first to last. The better your records are the better your case. Continue to see your doctors and get into a pain management and therepy programs. Everything like this will only make your case stronger. This is the way it went for me, I was extremely lucky. In the meantime your state should have assistance like Ohio I got $125.00 a month with food stamps and a Medicade card for medical. The money wasn't enough but the food stamps and medical assistance does help. If you have any more questions email me @ jayjay969@roadrunner.com and if needed I'll give you my phone number if you need to talk. It's a tough wear you down process, high in there. I also would like to suggest that you look into alternative ways of making money but beware there are many scams out there as I have found out the hard way. THE INTERNET, such a great thing but is a great place for the low lifes to take advantage of us good people. It's really disheartening, I am still trying to make it and just recently I hope and believe that I found some good programs that might just help me make some money. Remember SS money helps allot but it really isn't enough to live a real full life on, you will get by better though. Well Good Luck I hope this helps or atleast puts your mind to rest a little.

Johnnie have you tried Vocational Rehabilatation? They can help with a career,but as far as keeping your home you should check with F.H.A. (Future Homeowners of America). I too am dissabled due to a automobile accident in 2004 Breaking 15 vertibrae.  The help of these two establishments have put me on the path to starting my own business. It may take time' but they could give you a huge window to get your priorities in order. I hop this will be of some help. Good Luck and GOD Bless you.
