To make a long story as short as I can, I've been living in the Philippines, for over eight years, while collecting US Social Security Disability benefits for my disabilities. As a child I was diagnosed with several learning disabilities, but it was not until I was fifty that I was fully diagnosed, and put on SSDI (I may be a high functioning schizophrenic). When I went on SSDI my income went way down, so I was faced with either becoming homeless in US, or moving overseas. Recently the living situation where I'm at has become very untenable, and at the moment I'm under a great deal of stress due to threats which have been made against me by neighbors. I feel that my life may be in danger, and right now I'm having trouble eating and sleeping. I've tried contacting the embassy, but they tell me that they cannot get involved in civil matters. Actually, I don't even think they listen to my complaint. I would like advice on how to obtain help returning to the US as soon as possible. Unfortunately it is not as cheap to live here as I thought, and I don't have any savings, and I'm living hand to mouth. Help!
