I spent some time yesterday checking around my area for what types of programs are available for those who have a very small disability income. And what I found was, anything that is available, you have to be well enough to go get it or go to their appointments. If you aren't, you are just plain out of luck. They have food and clothing programs here, but if you aren't well enough to get there, too bad. Some programs are also age based. If you aren't a senior citizen, you're out of luck. If you are fairly young and disabled, too bad, there's nothing available. If you are fairly young and have no children, there is even less available to you. There is very little help for someone severely afflicted by CFIDS/FM/ME. Those of us who have it severe, often times, we can't leave our homes. We can't make it to appointments. We can't get out there and get the things available to us. I really don't know what we're supposed to do. Even a good program like Angel Food Ministries, if you miss the pickup date for the food, even though you paid for it, they will give your food away. You will lose the money if you are not well enough on that one day for those few hours to pick your food up. What I realized was that those with severe CFIDS/ME/FM are more disabled than just about anything anyone can name. And we need a different kind of help.
