Well, it’s official. As of March 1st, 2010, I have swallowed my pride and admitted that I need the system’s help.
That’s right, boys and girls. I applied for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) today.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: I haven’t worked long enough. Well, I’m under 30, so there are some different rules. There’s a chance I could get it.
I also need to apply for SSI and food stamps. But I can’t do that today because it’s too late in the day already. I’ll have to jump on that gravy train to survivable poverty tomorrow.
But don’t let that make you think I’m being pessimistic. I know that Vimprat’s out on the market now and that there’s a snowball’s chance in hell that it could work on controlling my seizures. So who knows. I mean, I did apply for a job that reads like my dream-job today…
