Might be a stupid question. Is there anything I need to look at when I pick up my walker?

AHCCCS is sending to a place to pick one up, but I don't know if there is anything I need to check on it to make sure it won't like fall apart on me when I walk out the door, sorta speak.

This is whole new territory for me, I don't know what to look for....

Amber has a bulky torso and short legs, remember.

Given my observations of, and experiences with, purveyors of Medicare- and Medicaid-approved equipment, somebody somewhere's going to make a mint equipping Amber.

When I needed a walker after cardiac surgery, instead of filing paperwork and waiting a couple of weeks to get one, I simply walked over to the local VFW Club and got one, at no charge to either me or the taxpayers.  They had a large room full of those, that had been donated upon the expiry of members, and I was told that many VFW Clubs have the same.

How long before she picks up her SSDI check while parking in the handicapped spot with her shiny new placard?

Actually, she may have worked long enough to qualify for regular social security disability, although given her age, it might be a close call.

Anybody remember her experiences working in that convenience store?

It appears that she will be a 'two walker' family. She posted on 18 August that she got one (in the short legs/long torso post).

And the technician at the MRI and the place I got my walker from commented on my long torso and short legs....
This other doctor could be some bone guy to just check my skeleton. They could be covering all the bases. https://www.democraticunderground.com/10181251660#post15

On edit - I did not pay attention to the dates. Amber's post requesting walker advice (in the disability group) was back in June, and her post about short legs and picking up her walker was in August.  So, she probably only has one.

Lost track of what stories she's told in her :bouncy: s?  :rotf:

In medicalese, things like beds or walkers are called Durable Medical Equipment (DME). So as long as she doesn't buy a walker from Ikea ......  :-)

Try looking for a job you artificial sponge.  soak a little reality and contribute instead of sucking the workers dry.

The root of her problem is that when she was in high school, she was "career-pathed" into television production, as if that might help her become employable and ensure job stability.

She did intern at a local television station for a few months while still in college, but that was that.

If she'd been career-pathed into something such as "sanitation services" or "housekeeper," for some position in the "hospitality" business, such as a motel, her life might've been totally different.

To be fair, her work behind the dumpster could fall under the hospitality services category

Ummmmm ... those are pretty normal terms, except for not asking for another month's rent as a security deposit. But she's been in Section 8 housing, so it's not like she's paying her entire rent herself.

Going way past 24 hours since I have slept.
Trooper doesn't go to his new place till Saturday.
So I have been laying in bed, cuddled up to him and messing around on my phone.
Trying not to think about the 31st.
It's not fair. This is my home, he's my family. Loosing it all because my body has failed me and the government is moving so slow to help me.
Can't afford this now, rent for this place is going up, trying to find a place, everyone is asking so much for first and last months rent.
How will I save enough when I'm going to need every penny to live.
Perhaps she should go back to wherever it is she came from and let her sisters support her rather than the government.

That was one of her biggest mistakes, when she left the tender loving care and mentorship of her two sisters back in Joplin.

One wonders why one of the long time DU members who might recall she has family doesn't suggest she return to their caring arms.

Wow. Surprising how many kids are out here on the streets.
There were a few my last time around, but now it's insane.
Worse yet, many are prostituting themselves.
Sad, so sad.
The last couple of threads have generated a lot of hugs, vibes, and thoughts, plus $20 on her 'gofundme' page.
