Needed Things

I find I need to get things, but I can’t always find them on-line.

First, I have osteoarthritis in hips and knees, with my left knee being the worst. I need a knee brace to support that joint, and while there are plenty out there who use velcro to secure the straps, velcro wears out. I need a brace that uses buckles to secure the straps because I can’t afford to keep replacing the damn things whenever they wear out.

The rest I can find, but I just can’t afford them. They are.

A taller bed frame. The one I have now is just ankle high, and with my arthritis and apnea that makes it hard to get out of bed. On top of which the slats are weak and a number have broken. Something like a futon couch with a steel frame would work a lot better.

To go with a new frame a night table for my cpap would help a whole lot.

Since it’s likely to be a while until I get a better apartment a full sized refrigerator would do me a world of good. As would a counter top oven to make up for the lack of one in my current digs. A microwave is not a substitute.

OTOH, I should be getting the cpap in a few months, when I do I’ll be able to breath better and have the energy to get out and participate in life and lose weight. In addition, at the end of the month I should have a functioning modem and be able to stay on line without getting knocked off by crap equipment.

Last but not least, looks like I’m going to be an employer. Oh, Medicaid pays for it, but I get to do the inquiries and interview, and I don’t know how to do that. So if you have any valid advice—and you live in San Diego—please tell me. Autism is a nasty disability and I know damn well I need help.

Help as you can.
