Preparing For A New Chapter, Ready Or Not
I'm Much Closer To Not, For The Record
I'm finally spending a little more time out of bed. I'm still having paralysis, but some days are better than others (some hours are better than others, too). I've been very busy cleaning, sorting, and packing for quite some time. My back thinks it is absolutely dying and it doesn't allow me to do much, but I'm doing what I can when I can.
I don't have a place to live yet. I'm still fighting with Social Security to the point of meltdown, but I am hopeful that things are going to improve soon. They are trying their best to kill me off so they don't have to pay me, even though they were so quick to declare me disabled. I am not allowed to work, go to college...nothing at all thanks to Muscular Dystrophy, but they sure don't want to have to help me survive (let's not forget that I was a working, honest, tax-paying citizen prior to April 2011, thanks). But they literally don't care. It's a shame and an unnecessary stress that the disabled have to force the government to follow their own laws.
Everyone who lives here will be moving, and the property will be sold. My grandparents built this house over 50 years ago. There is a great deal of history here, and while I am beyond tired of sharing space with others (almost 40 years old here, people), I know how lucky I've been to have lived at MawMaw and PawPaw's house. I just wish they could have been here too. Being in their home has made me miss them more than ever.
So anyway, this is partly what's going on with me lately. I can't talk about the rest yet, just know that I need and appreciate any and all thoughts and prayers. I'm broke and sick with no way out, and I really don't know how on Earth I'll survive in this society with so little to speak of. I am extremely stressed and sleep-deprived, in terrible pain, still very weak, walking with assistance, and randomly flat on my back throughout the day. This has been a tough year so far, but I'm going to keep hoping that things will get much better.
Talk to you soon, and thanks again for the well wishes.
