I would say that they get this help because they are human beings in need. Many are unable to care for themselves. Not every addict or alcoholic wants to be the way they are and since know one really knows what happens with people, I personally cannot say why they are addicts or alcoholics.

Drug addicts are constantly at risk of dying therefore, they are able to get help faster than most people. A life, any life is worth saving especially if that life is out of control.

The problem with diebetics, people with heart problems etc… is that many refuse to take proper care of themselves which adds to their problems. In this country, most people can find health care if they are willing to take the time to find it. There are free clinics, clinics with sliding fee scales and prescription plans that people may qualify for if they would either make the call or fill out the paper work.

Does it bother me that drug addicts and alcoholics get help faster than me, NO because they are people and I care about people and not about what they can or cannot get based on problems they may have in or with their lives.

I don't know anyone who has gotten
SSI without a lawyer. Go to legal aid and see if you can get help.

People are not suppose to work on
SSI then again it may depend on their disability. I have worked with people on disability who can earn a salary that is very limited. These people were in a program that trained them for jobs they could perform based on their disabilities and were people with special needs.

The government is not perfect and people take advantage of the system. I don't fault them, I fault the government for failure to audit who is getting what benefits.

I suppose that the reason may be that those people have lost all ability to take any kind of care of themselves. I hope that I don't let myself get into a place where I cannot do for myself.

Here is what I found to help me out. I am uninsured, so finding a doctor is very hard. I called my local hospital and asked about the "free" programs that they did or were aware of. That is how I found the clinic I go to. I am on a sliding scale and see a doctor there. It's not the best in the world, but it's better than nothing. I don't know who subsidizes the clinic. It was started by a local doctor several years ago. They take the insured and uninsured alike.

if one has medical care then one gets healthy, you need to be sick for medical companies …

That's really sad that the area you're in is not going to help you
How about your local diabetic Association they able to give you any answers
Because where I'm at I'm on a sliding scale but I only pay $20 a visit
And that includes dental eyes and medical mental
But I can definitely see your frustration
I would be also you're in Pontiac Michigan
I had a aunt who lived in Bay City
What about your local hospital?

Snuggles, a person has to look for the help they need. There is no clearing house for service providers. All most people have to do is ask people and someone may know someone who can help.

mm too reply too your answer you look for help only so far when you have 0 zero income and the put some clinics in Detroit which the only times I've been too there once a baseball game when I was like 12 or 13 tigers and the other time was the army checkup and test too get into the army when I was 18 years old I called one it was a spenddown 0 income so that doen't work I call one in ann harbor same as Detroit spenddown …then I found on said they send me some papers too fill out that they have 6mth too a year wait ok I don't have a car and everytime I did goto the doctors its 10 gas just around here let alone 30 min too hour drive too go out of this area and trying too be wheel around I've already went throw one chair that put hole in my back when it broke then the 2nd chair the front caster broke and I bearly got back home from ssi so that was 2 chairs down the chair I have now cost 350.00 abd its small but I need a way too get to the doctor now on insurance no car or handicap van just cost tooo much and too et the car or van insured 1200..00+ every 6mths oo I forgot when I had my state help they had it so I could call for a ride van handicap ride ramp straped too the floor and bam doctor here I come dad think because I had too call the superviser and welfare right that I 'm on some dirty list tht why its so hard too keep my help from the state but if I was a addict there wood be not problem i'm a addict and bam med card and food stamps

If you talk to your doctor
There are free programs out there for diabetes
Yes it's based on your income
But there is help out there!
Usually they are at your local hospitals

its good they are helping you but for a person unable too wok but the federal gov says even if your doctor says you can't work we say you can its not up too your doctor too say you can't so your not disable and your not working too have any income too spend on a ride too the doctors let alone pay the bill for the visit … and the Pontiac clinic I was talking about in the last post was started by one of the doctors too … but what I ve seen personally is felonies addicts getting more help then a diabetic does like factory that higher jail birds too getwhatever they get for the gov it a few streets up and I know 2 of the excons that work there when there lookin too a place too report too the parole office that they work there i'm not going too give there name I like one of them he doesn't do drugs as far as I know but he got a record for child support te other retail fraud and drugs arrested but different topics point is the drug ones working but the ssi secatery told mre too earn more credits duh what is he going too high my wheelchair a# too work what his job he had too keep walking too get copies he made from a printer duh my I think i'm losing my mind sometimes and then the government wonders where the term post came up and from them mail is a federl job
