For the last nine years we have battled the system to get care and necessities for my disabled son. I have been to every organization that advertises it supports our situation. We have filled out requests, information, paper after paper, only to be told there is no funding available, or there is a waiting list.The biggest answer is you dont qualify. They do not realize what this does to a family with a special need child or a disabled individual in their household. I have seen neglecting doctors, nurses that are mean and very negative and treat them like bugs. I have been working with other non profits in the area and they are having difficulty getting resources and funding from federal and local governments. The opinion of the disabled is one that they feel these individuals are a burden on society and the system just could care less. Funding is dwindling and almost non existent. This leaves families to fend for themselves. To work several jobs and be caregiver 24/7 with little assistance. We as Americans willall be old some day, we will allneed help, and the children that are disabled need help now. It should be their right to get everything they need to improve their living situation. And we as Americans shouls get off the sofa and start getting involved, instead of watching CNN and hoping someone else will do it. That is why this country is in the mess it is now, Because we never want to make waves..we just want to watch the grass grow and hope someone comes along to cut it!
