Caregiver needs help

My Story:

I am an only child/caregiver: I am 58 years old and am taking care of my 84 year old mother who has feeding tube and colon cancer. I have been out of work since October and have applied for disability. The disability has been approved, but I do not receive my first check until May.

Under the new laws, I was told there is a five month waiting period and I will not get the back (waiting months) money. I am behind on my mortgage since February. If I can get February mortgage, I will pay March and beyond. I did tell the mortgage company that I will be a month behind until I can catch up.

I hate asking for anything and I am a very proud woman. I have made the decision to take of my mother rather than put her in a nursing home. Thank you.
