Kind of interesting that your posting location is showing, given that you a posting from a cell phone. Normally, when posting from a cell phone, one's location does not show, as in a couple of you later posts. The exception to this is when your phone is connected to a wi fi network.
Drawing social security does not prevent one from working, provided that a certain number of hours are not exceeded per month.

Not a wrong @ssumption,
since the poster and the reader see differently,
and it comes across [to me at any rate]
That you are agitated..
BUT..
mind your he@rt..
bickering simply isn't worth it.
Grace, am just sliding in this conversation long enough to tell you ...I just love your new avatar. Really Nice~

<quoted text> That they do. Assuming knowledge of my entire life from a few days. Even when giving stats on basically what happened. This is my life at stake! Just asking for those in similar positions as to what they done,gone through. What is their problem? I have the proof of my physical state. Social security not just going to accept disability by say so. One has to prove it. Medical exames/ tests and setups by doctors S.S. appoints to avoid fraudulent claims. I passed all of it. Why I got disability. Because I went on it at age 45, not as much monthly payments as those who get it at age 65. And they know that, the doubters. That 900/ month is all I have. No pension, no 402k. I have to fill out every year S.S. form to continue to receive it and reqiures a doctors letter to send in. Physical determination done, evaluations done. Don't need or want medical evaluations from non doctors over a website. Thank you so much for standing up for me! I had that nice life of having a good income. Had an apartment of my own in 1990. Had a car,credit card and happy with that life and miss that life. All came crashing down when this physical junk happened. Not poor decisions that brought me to my current status.
I know a number of people who've been on disability for many years, who'll continue to be on disability, who could function just fine in the R W if they chose to. So your: "I'm on disability now, therefore I'm disabled" assertion isn't all that compelling an argument to me.

For whatever reason, compelling and actually disabling or not, you left the R W of work, bills, etc. in 2000, did the return to nester, took care of Mom for several of those 13 years, ignored an upcoming eviction, didn't save for the inevitable and now you're a victim.

You chose to not directly reply to my prior on the where the $600/mo. went and earlier bemoaned the demise of the local all you can eat place, so I'll take that as a: "Yes, I ate it" affirmation. Your "I paid Mom's bills that I didn't owe" assertion is a bit sketchy too.

Might be time to pull up your big boy pants, avoid the local buffet, save some rainy day cash, keep your options open on renting a room or having a roommate, show some flexibility on which neighborhoods you'd live in, apply for all assistance you can qualify for go for it.

For those who'll take this post as insensitive, tough! Speaking as a guy who was knocked on his bum multiple times and who come back from it, sometimes just by refusing to fail, some reality-based feedback might be what he needs. Or we can all hold hands and sing kumbaya.

In the meanwhile, if you haven't asked Wells, in writing, if they would allow you house sit, 30 days at a time, while they market the property, post 08/16/13, you should do so today. Good luck to you! It's probably not too late to create a soft landing for yourself!

Look dweeb - it's not hate - it has more to do with spotting an obvious fraud. Something you never thought you'd have to lie about to get around.
By the way - your ISP location is changing again - now you're in NY, huh? Wonder how you can do that with an Obamaphone and my $1500 smartphone can't.
I see the fraud in you. I explained what goes on with ISPs. I posted where I live. You just want to complain. And this IS NOT an Obama phone!!!. I pay for it.$1500 for a smartphone!!! What an idiot. I paid $99. And unlimited calls/ internet access for $55/ month.

Ours is a tiny country..

You said here on Offbeat some time back that
you had suffered a stroke,
I was genuinely sorry to hear that,
but, getting yourself agitated unnecessarily
does NOT help..
you should know that..
That's what I tell them. That ISPs jump around. Why I don't know. But I know it happens.

In reply to ad few posts you made me,
I still feel for you,
and what folks too easily forget is,
a person comes here and gives a bird's-eye view
of their particular life's difficulties;
how easy then it is, for m@ny
reading here ... to make a sudden decision that 'this person'
is a charlatan, layabout or a moan,
forgetting all the years months days hours
and minutes that person has suffered, and what
life complications brought him to this pass,
that, in desperation, he had to ask in cyberland for help..
Does he not honestly deserve a hearing?
Thanks Grace. They act as if I'm at their door knocking for money! Just asking advice. And I get so much nasty people. Every life has it's uniqueness. Various events lead to various paths. Too many to list my path leading me here. So even as I briefly stated the events, I know that is futile so just made this forum to get advice.

Why would you go without heat or AC, no refrigerator, limit yourself to one room, eat Dollar Store crap that really isn't any cheaper than Walmart food, but still put out $55 a month to text yourself silly? Go to the library and get on a computer for free! That $55, spent wisely, will buy you a lot more healthy food than you eat now.

Get yourself a couple of 5 gallon buckets and plant your favorite veggies in them. Save a lot of money that way, and the taste is much better than store bought. Ask at restaurants, they will give you the buckets.
