This is a bogus thread - some troll out for sympathy.
Not looking for sympathy. Don't want it- need it. Looking for advice and/or others in similar situation. Sympathy is useless. You think this is fun? What woukd anyone gsin from "sympathy"? It won't pay the bills. It won't put food on the table. Already have sympathic words given me. Does'nt solve current problem. Looking for solutions. That's what's helpful.

Have you tried contacting your local office for the ageing to see if they could help you? Or maybe some place like catholic charities or other local organization?

Just a thought....

Got a homeless guy living on the patio next to my home. The house is abandoned but has a roof over it. With Raynauds syndrome along with other ailments, I can't survive in this climate outside. Get hyperthermic fast. He has a better life to return to IF he gets help for alcoholism. Has a wife with a good job,he has a home to live in and a 3yr old son. I wish that's all I had to overcome. The guy is extremely healthy. Slept outside all winter. Got the flu and recovers in one week. I get a flu shot and was ill 6 weeks and in a home.

ISP's should be giving any location, given that you are posting from a cell phone.

I have. State reps office, county-simply said they can't help me. Other places have a 3-5 yr waitng list. Why I turned to the internet. As for aging,I'm not a senior and these agencies will only do something from age 65! I thought locally I wod have gotten asistance as I can present documents.

Last resort... commit a crime, go to jail. You get 3 hots and a cot.

Seriously, it sounds like what you need is to find a room mate, maybe someone in a similar situation. I'd look on craigslist under the housing, rooms/shared section.

Correct. None show on my phone. When on other forums, I'm asked about my location when a poster liking my words asks if I live nearby being my ISP shows them as me being near when I'm not. PC's show location so that's where other posters think I'm at. While I have no ISP showing on my cell phone.

Yup.

One of the reasons I haven't even bothered to tell him that I am more than qualified to offer him the advice that I did, given that my wife has the exact same symptoms that he describes (she has severe osteoarthritis AND fibromayalgia, on top of a bum neck from the Christmas Eve accident), and still works.

Not sure what you're trying to say there, but your location (at least, a router location) is clearly showing on your first few posts.

Hello there...
Forgive me butting in from over here..although I am in the UK
(Wales actually, although my server is in Manchester) I am
familiar with your area and remember Camden from when I lived in NJ. So not surprised to hear it is a high crime area.
Would this link be of any help until you get yourself sorted?

If I can be of further assistance by perhaps contacting anybody on your behalf, then please don't hesitate to let me know, I can put out feelers for you as regards room mates if it will be of any help....I am fortunate I am not on a 'phone..so it costs me no more than I pay already.

Good Luck..

At least you're trying to help. Did look on roommate list on internet. Still searching for compatibility.

Bull. I been answering posts. Few are being humane. But still address as much as I can. So why you here then? A vulture looking for prey? Almost all your posts on many forums are just for cyber attacks. Anyone has to do is read them.
