Is there any financial assistance for a stepmother having to take on most financial hardship for a 42-year-old stepson who has been waiting on disability insurance for over 4 years? His mother lives in California with his sister on an army base, so he cannot move there. I am 75 years old and trying to live on social security. His medical expenses are not all covered by his mother. He does get food stamps but they don't last a month. I am broke and don't know what I can do, I have sold my jewelry that was of any value. He needs insurance to have a back operation so he can work. He also has an aneurysm which causes migraines. He is bipolar, has anxiety, depression, short term memory loss and one kidney. He has a lawyer. His dad got disability for sleep apnea. Didn't have a lawyer and it only took 8 months. What is wrong with the State of Tennessee? Todd is on his 3rd appeal. If these people had pain from head to foot 24/7, they would get insurance a.s.a.p!
