I love your show. You make my day. It is wonderful that you help so many people. I am 65 years old and never thought I would ask for help. I'm a waitress, and was working 5 days a week, and barely getting by. On Oct.10th my Dr. told me I have a blood disorder in my legs. It is called TTP. Blood clots form in my veins and when they bust, my legs are sold blood under the skin from my knees to my toes. The Dr. told me I need to quit work so a clot doesn't get to my heart or my brain. Stroke or heart attack. I also have COPD, high blood pressure, and other things. I filed for my social security but it is only $500.00 a month. I am still trying to work 2 or 3 days a week but that is not enough to pay bills, rent and buy groceries. My legs are not holding up to good with me working, they get worse when I am on them all day. I was off Oct. 10th to Nov. 4th due to Drs. orders. My legs did pretty good, less blood, and less pain. I had to go to food pantry to get food, they only let you come 2 times a year, and they paid my electric bill and could only do that once a year. Ellen I am at wits end, I don't know what to do. My legs can't stand to much longer. I desperately need help. I have never been one to ask for help, I just don't have a choice now. It's the holidays and I have no money and I am behind on all my bills. I hope that I can be one that you will help this year. God Bless, Margie
