Hi Peggysue,

I am not an expert in finding help for folks in your situation but it is not
as rare as you may think. I have received a few e-mails in the past few days
with similar requests or questions. I am checking into your questions and the
others as well. In the mean time I am asking the help of the readers of this
board for their help.

The situation is this. Quite a few folks with GD cannot work or get fired from
their jobs. Some of us like Rachel, Dianne, Bruce and myself have been able to get
time off of work (or retire) and keep our health insurance. Many of us are not that
fortunate and find ourselves out of work without insurance. No job, no money, no
money, no medicine, no medicine, you get sicker, you get sicker you can’t look for
work, you can’t look for work, you have no money. It becomes an endless
cycle. If you have a support system i.e. family and friends, it helps but!!! A
person can only do so much.

We have a lot of shadow readers who read the posts and don’t post (but e-mail me
with comments and suggestions) and a large number of folks who are regulars on this
forum. Does anyone have suggestions?? I am contacting medicade to see what their
requirements are for assistance. But other than that I am at a loss. This is one
thing we can try to find help on and give people reason to be thanksgiving. Your help
will be appreciated. You can post your message on the BB or e-mail me and I will
pass the information on to the folks who asked the questions..

Thanks for your help,
