You seem to write lucidly enough, had you ever considered trying to get a career in writing? It’s not a very big field, but for the lucky or hard-working it can be a career.
I do it as a hobby, so my income is miniscule, about $30 a column, but if I had ever figured out how to sell my column to, say, 49 other publications a week, that would have been $1500 a week for about 6 hours of work.
LOL Let me post to you without any editing. I can't see my own grammar or sentence structure mistakes. My brain has trouble with recognizing then correcting such mistakes. My concentration window per day can be as little as 15 minutes and is fatiguing. You may not understand that part but it is a common trait in Vestibular Disorders.
I stay busy as much as my mind and body will allow me. I have a full time 24/7/365 job at home. People complain about cost let me throw some figures out there. Our annual income is $17,000 roughly. Thats for two person both on SS disability combined income. Now then if I wasn't taking care of my wife she would be in a skilled care facility. That would run anywhere from $50,000-$75,000 per year. Which is cheaper? If I was able to work I would but my own medical issues plus my wifes medical issues make it impossible. Taking care of both of us is about my limitations.
I do have a realitive who has only finger movement and works. A person has to assist on the job including driving etc. That means that person also must be paid. The job? Government funded created make work. Going around interviewing other disabled to work in government make work programs. These back to work programs usually do not pan out due to the realities of the diabilities. They are however a windfall for the contractors running such training programs.
This afternoon I took our van to a repair shop for a repair 16 years ago I could have done myself which is a water pump replacement. Like I said if I could I would. I haven't been under a vehicle in 15 years. Vertigo hits me hard when I do.
