So what have I been up to?
Since February, I've been trying to get a new wheelchair and braces to be more mobile...
Yesterday I got confirmation that my wheelchair is being ordered....braces are still in the process with insurance. YES....it takes that long to get the things we need if you have Medicare.
I'm still trying to find a job...I wish I could find something...anything to be productive.
I'm still trying to get a car. I really, REALLY miss driving Uber/Lyft.
I've got a new apartment after the fiasco at the last apartment.
They just said they wanted ME gone....no money ordered no nothing...sooo.
The Landlord made me buy my own ramp, and wants me to take it in when I'm not using it...but I'm not going to. Then, the apartment was placed on facebook marketplace for $750 and he's charging us $800 per month. This is partially because we're getting some help with rent for a couple months.
Why, you ask, do I not immediately file a complaint with Fair Housing? Because, the landlord also put a clause in our lease that says I cannot file a complaint...which is illegal in itself, but, HEY, I'm trying to make this work. (If anyone out there wants to help me with this, I'm open to suggestions...I really like this area and don't want to be evicted as soon as I've moved in)
Jacob and I have had our bumps, and a really big one in August that almost was the end of us, but we perservered. And are still together.
Oh yeah, I was hit by a car on Sept 19, my sisters birthday. It was a hit and run, but we were able to find the driver...only to have him not have insurance. He told the police he had insurance, however, it had lapsed. My power chair has a bend frame from this and I now need a new one.
Not only that, but I GOT A TICKET for using the street when a sidewalk was available!!! AVAILABLE DOES NOT MEAN ACCESSIBLE!!! One end of the sidewalk was good and ADA compliant, however the other end was not, and the officer only looked at the one end. I feel that this ticket, and the fact that the responding officer did not file a police report and didn't get the three witnesses information, is the reason that Bell County is NOT PROSECUTING the person that hit me, even though he admitted it. So, I'm stuck trying to replace a power wheelchair. (And then there's the ambulance and emergency room bill.) The ticket has since been dismissed because they actually looked up ADA laws and determined the sidewalk was inaccessible....YA THINK!!!!
Again....if anyone has suggestions...I'm all ears on this one. We are thinking of starting a fundraiser for replacing the wheelchair, however, I have not had much luck with these in the past and am hesitant about this.
We're thinking of trying TikTok to generate some income, with videos about how I do things and of course our crazy life together...we may start that soon.
Anyway...that's my life in the past couple months. My goal is to start posting on my blog more and actually being present here because I really do miss this.
