Disabled Widow Seeking Grant Money To Resume Independent Life
by Leonor Arango
(Miami; Florida, USA)
I have been through a lot. Now I'm looking for government grant money to help me resume an independent life.
I was an executive in computer sales for G.E. Capital and a few more companies.
In 1992 they discovered I had chronic hepatitis C. I kept on as long as I could but in 2000 it started to take a toll on me and in 2004 I became disabled.
I am also bi-polar and self medicated.
I would like to go to school to be an intake counselor in a drug program especially for teens.
I gave my car to my daughter and five kids to get transportation.
I became very ill, put everything in storage and came to my mom's in Miami. I am 53. It's very difficult. We bump heads.
I always worked and never lived off of the government. I've been trying for assistance in housing.
My ex husband died two months ago from this illness. He did not quit drinking, but I am clean and sober and would like a chance.
Regards, Leonor Arango.
