Can i get paid for taking care of my disabled mother who had a stroke? i am a single mother?
I have been told that social security or insurance can compensate one for being cna 1 caregiver in the state of north carolina for your mother. She had a stroke in 2009 and has come along way. However , it is constant feeding tube flushing, crushing meds, running i v bags ,physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy feeding bathing and many many more things. I am also juggling school and raising my four year old alone. Now, Before any ignorant opinions cuz believe me i know there are a lot of ignorant people on both saides it is not about the money at all..... However i cannot raise my daughter mother or get through school without gas money, bill money etc. I just don t know what to do. I am trying so hard and have been managing. I do not want her in a home because it breaks my heart to see some of those places... but i don t know what to do as far as career or compensation for taking care of mother as certified CNA 1
Disabled and struggling with weight?
So there is probably a thousand and 1 posts out there relating to weight loss, but I have some pretty specific questions I could do with answering. I'm 28 years old, I work at home on behalf of a credit card company and I am disabled. My disabilities are arthritis in my spine, along with sciatic problems. Most days I am in pretty crippling pain, which is disheartening considering I used to be pretty active up until about 3 years ago. I take pain killers everyday strong ones but I do try to limit the amount I do take, as they make me feel totally spaced by the end of the day, leaving me feeling drained of energy and " get up and go" So anyway, I went to my doctors regarding my weight I'm 5'9 and I weight just under 23 stone compared to the 17 stone I used to be back in 2009 I used to do a lot of weight training I would eat a lot of calories, but I turned them into muscle and worked them off over the duration of the day, with walking the dog and so on. But now ,with being physically incapacitated most of the time, ability to do lots of exercise is difficult. My eating habits aren't that great, but not as bad as it could be. The bad things I eat are the usual fizzy pops, crisps, chocolate that kind of thing, but not all the time The good things I eat are things like fish, eggs, most veg, fruit usually tinned, I love fruit cocktails and tinned pineapples, mandarins I eat chicken, but I've not eaten beef or pork for a long time now, it never sat well with me.I suppose my question is, what can I do to shed the weight, given my physical incapacity? I can afford decent food, as I do work full time hours and I do enjoy cooking. What ideal things should I eat for breakfast? I don't have time to make up to 6 small meals a day, so that's not really practical for me. Is the theory true about not eating after 7 at night? As one of my bad habits is actually leaving dinner until later on at night, sometimes as late as 10 What foods are a MUST? I know which foods to avoid, which I am doing, but I could do with advise of what I should eat. It's all well and good the doctor giving me a shortlist of things to eat, but I would really like to know what works for other people out there. I would like to add, I do have a treadmill, I spent quite a lot on it just last year, but I only end up being able to use it in the rare event I'm not in pain and haven't taken the daily allowance amount of pain killers. Any advise would be really appreciated. It's not as much the things I shouldn't be doing I need help with, I need advise with what to do, what options of weight loss do I have given my physical problems and what foods should I be eating. Like, if anybody could give me a morning to evening example of what to eat, that would be great Thanks in advance for any replies.
