Don't feel isolated Goethe, I hate eveyone.

I'm in the same boat as you Goethe. After working for 30 years a mass appeared in my spinal cord and everything from my chest down started to go numb. They cut the backs of 4 verterbrae off in my neck to alleviate the swelling but it failed to help. I have been in constant pain for almost 3 years now and only recently got on SS disability. I don't WANT to be a welfare case but I cannot do any kind of activity for much more than an hour. There are no jobs that I could perform and I'm not picky. I was a well paid artisan before my illness but I would gladly clean floors if I could. The boredom of being at home 24/7 is incredible.
IF you have your health, be glad. Things could be far worse and then who would ask for help? In your fantasy land I suppose you would just have to go curl up and die somewhere.
I take it you are young and have never had serious health issues. Count your blessings friend
Can you live on less than $12,000 a year? My drugs alone cost me over $400 a month, forget any doctor visits or exams. Now I have to wait for Medicare to kick in so I can get a brain tumor removed before it takes my hearing away. Oh. what a grand life of luxury I live!
