You guys are the best! Thank you sooo much . . .
I hadn't thought about the church option as my beliefs don't require a church, but I do happen to have a few friends that may be willing to sit down with me and see if we can brainstorm a few ideas . . .
I've sent the link to this site to my family. I decided on an email, since we've already discussed this to death, and I'm hoping if they care enough to look around here that someone else's story may help them understand what I'm trying to cope with . . .
LyndaCarol you gave me several ideas when you suggested the colleges . . . I'm sure I could act as a tutor . . . and I can lowball anyone's rate at this point
I don't even mind watching a couple of kids after school and throwing tutoring in the mix . . . my brain is finally moving in the right directions. Thanks for the much needed nudge . . .
If I can get an income going, I'm already at the top of the list through one of my Drs for private subsidized housing, so its just a matter of a steady income, any income at this point . . .
Lyon - I had a 180 day appeal period on that disability, I think its nearly up , I'll have to pull out the paperwork . . . is it possible to reopen that after the fact? I know absolutely nothing about these things . . . I was thrust into this all so suddenly. Until the past few years I was an extremely active person . . . this has all been just a terrible nightmare so far . . .
Again, the advice and ideas are soooo appreciated . . . thank you
