    I am a disabled Vietnam Veteran who can hardly walk at times because of a bad back with no pain medication. The pain is so bad it goes from my back to my hips down both legs to my feet. It has taken the VA over 2 years to find the problem and now I can’t get to see the doctor to get a shot. I was a week away from my appointment and I get a call that my appointment was canceled. I am a disabled Veteran and I can’t do anything after walking from my bed room to my kitchen and I have to sat down because of the pain. Why is VA not helping people like me get so kind of help to relieve pain before they have more problems? How long will it take me to get some kind of relief?

    Can I continue to wash and rinse my clothes with cold water, to save energy? Or must I wash and rinse with hot water?

    I want to know if Veterans will qualify for the stimulus package that has been approve yesterday.
