Deb, I have long called for a legalized hitwoman company where things like this could be settled once and for all.
I know that you aren't old enough to qualify for Medicare but what about getting SSI, their disability payments?
I am still calling for a "Two Million Woman March" on Washington, DC. (I have upped it from 1 million because there are so many new ladies on our board.) Maybe then we'll be taken seriously. But my paranoid side says that this is all a plot so they won't have to pay us long-term social security benefits.
I wish you the best of luck with an attorney. The politicians always seem to cut the benefits of the needy before they think of reducing their salaries, cutting their enormous expense accounts, and stopping needless funding for a chosen few. The only comment I could have to all of them is:" Y'all suck".
Let me know how you are doing as this goes on. You really need the break.
PS - $6000 is way below the "poverty level" as defined by the US Govt.
A good friend will bail you out of jail...
but a true friend will be sitting
next to you saying,
"Dâmn... that was fun!".
