This Week's Carenote - 8/18/10

Hello,
I have a question for you.  I am looking for some financial assistance. The following is my situation.

I am 41 years old, and live with my parents.  In November 2009 I had to quit my full-time job to stay home and provide healthcare to my mother, who has severe rheumatoid arthritis and other health problems. I have no income whatsoever coming in. My parents get Social Security, but they also have a mortgage (and will not do the "reverse mortgage" thing), and they are paying my car payment and my COBRA insurance, not to mention their bills.  I also have mobility problems but do not qualify for disability.  I was wondering if you have any ideas on what I could do to get some sort of money coming in.  Medicaid? Medicare? There has got to be something or someone who can help me, I just don't know where to look. Any info, contacts, suggestions, or ideas you have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this.
