thought i could get 3 free nights at circus but i couldnt since i had no play, used up my comps and paid money but not much. also i found out about the bus to suncoast, it also goes to the airport, and u can get it every hour at 4th and carson, which is nice, but not helpful as it goes nowhere near here. would only be helpful if i lived near grump. someone said to try the beverly palms, i worry about my safety if i lived downtown.
actually to be honest, they will ignore the letter or just say their lowest fee is $575 to be evaluated and given a diagnoses. (yeah i looked at their other PDF documents u can download). the ones for the "sliding scale".

From: "Tony Bigcharles"
i am homeless, and trying to get my SSI denial appealed. i couldnt find an attorney willing to assist me in the appeal, because i am not "seeing a doctor".
lived my whole life with aspergers, no need to see a dr, im pretty much the person who keeps to myself instead of being around others. i supported myself playing poker, and recently lost everything.
i used to get ssi, then it stopped over a year ago when i won a large jackpot. now im about broke and cant afford housing. am living in Jean NV off $12 dollars a day in comps til i run out, because i cannot afford a place to live anywhere else where id have to pay cash. all the cheap places in vegas are way too unsafe to live in since im white.
am in vegas til sunday for 2 days, really need to go somewhere and get help with ssi today, i dont know where to go. i need to find an atty who can accept me, and i need help with finding a dr, and i have no money. also i could get a disabled bus pass and save a lot of money if i only had some way to prove i have the autism.
ive had it since birth, but no idea how to prove it, except that i used to get ssi for it in the past. my mom is old, age 70 and she has no idea what dr or lawyer i used years ago. ssi claims my old records are "sealed' and they dont know.
because i was off ssi for over a year i had to start all over from scratch. applied in august, got denied in oct and now im reappealing it. and theres NOTHING medically any different about me.
can u please tell me how a homeless broke guy finds a dr? i was hoping the sliding scale was like the "gambling counseling" i used to get from UNLV that was only $5 week, and then i left the area and stopped going. i dont feel i need to talk to a dr, but i need to somehow prove i have a disability to both an ssi attorny, and to the city bus, i cant afford to pay full fare all the time.
yes i know i need to be in vegas to get help with social agencies, or even to go and apply for food stamps, but as a Christian and a republican i not only feel thats wrong morally, i am afraid they wont accept me because i cant prove my citizenship because i was born in canada. to an american parent, but still , it caused trouble years ago.
all i want is a disabled bus pass, and to get ssi again, im broke and desperate and dont want to go back to panhandling. thats how i got the money for years. is there anyone willing to pay the fee for me so i dont have to beg for money?
i cannot get a NV id because of it so every 4 yrs i have to return to louisiana to get an id there. need a way to solve that too. i just cant bring myself to be in vegas on the streets if i can survive in Jean another 3-4 weeks off old comp dollars from the goldstrike casino. where else can i live $12 a night in a casino?
someone please help me know what to do long term. they tell me i cant get a disabled pass unless a dr tells them i need it
also id appreciate it if u guys would please contact my mother in ks. and she will verify my condition. she is sherry Bigcharles on facebook, only 1 person in the world with the same name.
i have an online blog that talks about my struggles with autism everyday and the pain of trying to survive gambling and being homeless. go to sevencard2003.blogspot.com and u will learn alot.
cannot understand why im not doing better in stud, played it for years and won small amounts. i guess only the old stud experts play there, not tourists, although one lady always loses and is very bad.
dropped $100 there since coming to vegas, played stud all day with a dead cell phone unable to contact anyone and didnt realize grump didnt get my letter i sent yesterday afternoon, now everyone seems to be asleep. had a long rest with a lot of nightmares.
and of course, there is NO $2-6 spread game at the riv, so i sure cant afford to play any poker around here. have checked a lot on bravo lately even while out of town to be sure, and never once seen it listed.
seattle irish did say he might run me out to opp village saturday, but thats NOT where i think i go to get this. thats only for disabled people working there, and im sure they need proof before they can be screened by an employee from a dr.
maybe since this other service is done by UNLV, seattle irish will go and talk to them explaining how he knows me and the letter is legit?
