Hi I'm Grace and my friend is Will. Not the sitcom, but real life people and we need help. I have been awarded Social Security due to a traumatic brain injury that has left me unable to work in my chosen field of Corporate Finance, as I can't do 3rd grade math anymore and may never again. The type of stroke I had left me with enough dead brain tissue that the connection to my past work life doesn't exist anymore and may never be reestablished without a lot of work and therapy. My emotional health is barely tethered, but I can manage. Not too many people around and no chaos and I'm ok, otherwise, I'm a weeping/wailing mess. Not the stoic being it took years to create and manage. That's all gone. Will is another emotional mess, but for different reasons and caused by 1 specific human - his brother. This other man that shares DNA has made Will homeless, has taken Will's home through lies and deceit, has used law enforcement to destroy Will's life and he continues to lie and deceive by steeling Will's mail from the house he lived in for decades, including while he was taking care of their mother - without help, with no compensation from his brother, all expenses on Will's dime even though he couldn't work as his mother had Alzheimers and died from pancreatic cancer. The neighbors remember Dorothy running down the street like a child without clothes. Gary denied his mother had Alzheimers "that bad", but the doctor's and medical professionals knew all that Will had to do and that the brother and his family did nothing. Except be Grim Reaper's - Gary and his wife. They were Reaper's of despair and immortality in their own house, their daughter suing them for emancipation for abuse and lewd and lascivious acts on a minor. This is what the brother and his wife have done to the family name which goes back to before the Declaration of Independence. The shame they have brought has left Will with the need to disassociate himself from this shared history. Besides, Will is gay, something his brother and sister-in-law ridicule and dismiss as an aberration and a "choice". We are homeless. There are no low cost/Sec 8/Affordable Housing projects to speak of around here and moving is highly questionable as we both need medical care - me for ongoing stroke recovery and cognitive therapy and Will for his prostate cancer and Lumbar issues requiring surgery. Sec 8 housing has a long waiting list, if there is one. And if you're lucky enough to fill out an application, you're only eligible for a lottery. A lottery. I've played SuperLotto and I haven't won a thing in years. Last time it was $3. I have furniture stored in storage units and I can't physicality get at stuff to sell, as if anyone would buy any of it. I am disabled and so is Will. His back is so bad he can barely stand for more than 15 minute without needing to sit due to severe pain. We can't even deal with his cancer at this point. I can only handle so much and I'm at capacity. Help us please. We are trying to do everything we can, but I have at least SSI now and Will still has nothing. He has filed for SSD. We are going through all the proper channel's, but it has resulted in nothing. Hurry up and wait is the usual. Sec 8 housing in Livermore isn't taking applications. Sec 8 in Tracy takes up to 10 years. They are less than 20 miles apart. We're staying at Extended Stay America in Tracy because Motel 6 Livermore blacklisted me for checking out late (Noon as opposed to 11 am - and I'm disabled). At least we can warm food or refrigerate it here. And it ain't cheap to stay here. But it's better than sleeping in the car and trying to get to a bathroom before my incontinence becomes a visual embarrassment. We need an attorney and we need a place to be.Please help us.
