Help available, right

I have really at the point where I don't care anymore! 

I lost my job in October 2008 and have gone from having a meager life to no life. 

Being 61 years old and physically unfit for today's job market suddenly you find that you have lost your home, medical insurance and money to maintain any kind of life. 

You have to move in with children that cannot afford you because of economy issues that they have. By loosing medical insurance when your wife is a heart patient with many serious problems and you yourself also have heart and other problems your world gets thrown completely upside down and you are at the point where both of don't want to continue, 

Yes their is help available for some but not all, and why everyone wants to see your last years tax statement when you are now unemployed just doesn't make sense to me because who would go threw the humiliation to get what services some agency may or not give you. 

People need to be treated like someone really cares and believe me the helpful hands in these so called government agencies and business don't care its all about the ALL MIGHTY DOLLAR.
