Hi Again My Fibro Buddies, I just had to take a couple of minutes tonight to Sincerely thank all of you who wrote to me so fast. I can't begin to tell you how much it really meant to me, just to know that YOU wonderful people care to try and help (little old) me! I did get some ideas and I am following some of the suggestions. Mostly the other stuff I already had looked into, just shows me I'm on the right path. As for the prayers, I had to cry because suddenly I didn't feel so all alone. I myself got down on my knees and prayed too. No luck yet but I am still researching and I won't stop until I get my own home. SSA & SSI didn't defeat me and nieiher will this!!!!! How? When? Where? I don't know these things, but I do believe in the picture in my mind with me in my home. If I can create the picture in my mind , I have no doubt that it is attainable. I have to keep moving forward and learn as much as possible. I would still appreciate any other advice concerning immediate housing. So, if anyone knows any one that has perhaps been in my situation, I CAN'T BE THE ONLY ONE!!! I also know that typically FM people (not excluding any other chronics, intentionally) We are a smart bunch. What choice do we have? We had to learn to survive and just try to find a Doctor that knows more about FM than any one of us! HA!I I just didn't know "beans" about all the aspects of buying my first home. By way of Gov. help. SSA doesn't pay that much, so they will have to help me. RIGHT?? Sorry to go on and on, so I'll stop. Thanks again to all of you who reached out to throw me a rope. Can any one help me climb into the BOAT (or house rather,)????? The Warmest of Thanks, Deanna 2 days and counting...HELP! PS If you're wondering where part one is, it's dndoriginal dated Dec.1st I think. maybe 2nd??
