Carol Burgos is worried her neighbors think she is bringing the neighborhood down.
She lives in a mobile home park in a woodsy part of Columbia County, N.Y, just off a two-lane highway. The homes have neat yards and American flags. On a spring Saturday, some neighbors are out holding yard sales, with knickknacks spread out on folding tables. Others are out doing yardwork.
Burgos' lawn is unruly and overgrown.
"How bad do I feel when these little old ladies are mowing their lawn and I can't because I'm in so much pain?" she says.
