So a lot of you have known me for a long time. I am having a really bad flare after my husband decided that he no longer wanted me to live in his house because we did not agree on money issues after I began getting my S.S. I don't understand since he knows what I go through as he has the same illnesses I do, we met here some years ago. For those ladies that are alone and on very limited income, my social security is small, how are you managing to get housing and utilites, meds, go to the doctor and all the things that a younger senior citizen needs? I had to move home to Missouri in an old 84 F250 truck that he bought me because he had forced me to sell my newer truck when we got married. The darn thing is needing work already so that is another issue and it is not paid for so I cannot sell it and get something that runs better. I am currently living in a 1 1/2 room finished basement apartment at my daughter's but I know this is temporary, and that she expects me to get on my feet and move out in a few months. How does one go about getting on one's feet with 2 credit card payments a month, the truck insurance (he is "suppose" to pay the truck payment) but I am to pay for insurance. Then I had to put my things in storage so there is that payment, my meds I can get help with but that takes time. I lost my health insurance when I left WA state to come home. I AM LITERALLY AT THE END OF MY ROPE. I am totally freaking out. He made me promise that when I file for divorce that I would not ask for alimony since he is paying a big $101. payment a month on that truck. He gets about $700. a month or more then I do. This is just not fair. I am terrified, don't know who or where to turn to. I am going to have to get out of this basement apt since my knees are so bad and already the going up and down is making me so much worse. If you know of any or many resources please, please let me know here. Does anyone know how little one might have to pay if they get housing assistance? I will say that I get less then $600. a month. I have heard it rumored that some people only pay about $40 a month for senior rentals that are nice, but I cannot imagine that. I am going to need utility, phone, meds, medical, housing assistance and then some. Have any of you been through this, and how long did it take to get on your feet. The ideal situation would be if I could find another senior lady in my position and we could share an apartment. Just need input and ideas on what to do and in what order to do them.
