For My dad who suffers from severe MS
by Anthony Cummings
I am writing this for my father and my mother.
Starting with my mother who remarried in 2007 to her high school sweet heart. It's was great! Mom was happy.
Shortly after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. I quit my job and left my girl to go help my mother and my step dad who worked 10, 11 hour shifts at the prison.
After my mother makes a full recovery, my father is diagnosed with severe MS. So I stay another year. Within that one year my father went from working to taking an extended leave, to having to retire for his disability.
Now even though he had to retire for being disabled he can't get any help. We have tried to get him verified as disabled so might be able to get some assistance.
I work full time, my mother works full time taking care of my dad who has now lost his ability to walk, controls his bladder or care for himself, After three years.
Because of hardships my mother and father had to file for bankrutpsy. Its getting worse fast. Now they might lose the house.
Myself and my girlfriend live with my parents. We both have jobs and pay rent there and buy food. I have no life really outside work and home.
I can only imagine what my father is going thru. In just three years he has lost almost everything. Job, ability to walk.he's depesed all the time. My mother is depressed all the time.
I do everything I can to help and things just get worse.
Where can I get my father some help?
