Financial security shaken

I really miss the days when I was healthy and self supporting. Relying on the government for my security comes with its own set of self esteem killing issues and today it’s made worse with the possibility that Social Security checks won’t go out in August.

Is this a ploy by the president to prompt action? I sincerely hope so. However did he think about the fact that this statement would strike fear into the hearts of those of us who are sick and need help?

Today has been somewhat blah anyway. I can’t believe just how much writing one piece completely zapped me. I tend to forget that I am, indeed, disabled. I’m a quite high functioning blind person but when it comes to the MS? It’s such a land of the unknown. I know my eyes don’t work. That never changes. It’s been this way for over three years now. But I am never prepared for the onset of a fatigue when it hits and I never know when something like writing an article will bring it on.

There was a lot more than just writing, obviously. It was a whirlwind couple of days that brought on a deluge of emotions and questions and doubts. Mix that with some humidity, bake at 100 degrees and bam, hellos fatigue pie.


I don’t know. 😉

My brain is apple sauce today and finding out about about the possibility of no check in August has tipped me over, especially after spending the morning budgeting.

If saying that is a ploy, Mr. Obama, I hope it works. I also hope that next time you might think about what that kind of statement will do to those of us who rely on government help. Most of us hate that we have to rely on you, trust me. Most of us wish we could bring in our own money and only have ourselves to count on.

This post is all over the place but I don’t care. I’m all over the place and it’s my blog so it matches me. I wish I could go scream at trains, but it’s too hot and there’s no indoor trains. Hey, at least I have my humor.
