High all I haven't been on much even tho it's open in my tablet always. Think I last posted why am I still alive. Well truth is I shouldn't be. I've had at last count seven times I beat death one I was gone and came back. Earning a nickname by the er nurses The Miracle Man. This last one with the collapsed lung added lots more pain I really didn't need. The bad part I'm broke , you all know SS disability is hardly enough to live on without bills from five hospital stays in a few years. NO IM NOT ASKING FOR HELP IN ANYWAY. I'm offering advice to you who can still work and are not in pain from it . Work as long as you want to live each day as if it's the last one . So enjoy what you like , love your wife like she's still 20 and do all you both wanted to do. If you have plenty of investment enjoy the years of retirement . Before it becomes drs monthly and assisted living time.
I'm trying now to get set up with a different pain Dr who my home Dr thinks is top shelf after she fixed her husband's pain problems in a few months of treatment. I need some therapy to help get my legs usable for transfer to my wheelchair. Pain in large muscle in left thigh it's so tight it can't bend at the knee.. and a bed sore rules my movements also.
Take my advice to heart don't stop moving till you absolutely can't bare it. If moderator don't like this close it out. It really won't bother me.
I covet your prayers and need them .

Have you checked with your states medicaid? Financial wise, it is better then medicare, most things are a dollar or two copay. Medicaid is determined by your income, and yes you can have medicare, and medicaid.

People can think what they want, but chronic pain really sucks bad. I take a handful of pain pills daily, things are much better then before, but still many days my body says heck no. You mention moving, absolutely right. Even if it is some super simple projects, plan and do them, or even plan and make several local trips. As much as I hate New Jersey, it does have lots of beautiful places.

Glad to see you posting again.

You give some great advice above.....keep moving.
My 80-year old Dad takes a roughly 4 mile hike with his dog every day and sometimes seems more spry than I am at 50.

Keep up those miracles.

It's no easy process to do or get done. They want everything from 5 years back and everything you own or invested into. Value of life insurance, your home . If you have bank account CD ira , cash . I couldn't even tell all the rest from the list , half what they want to know about I don't even know for sure or value. I have life insurance from the time I was 8 or 10yrs old, and added to it when married before being disabled. How do I value that just face or accumulated . It's very frustrating to do let alone finding things in an attic we can't climb into anymore. I haven't had a bank account in 10 years but a shared cking account with my wife. Yes I did try to comply with the Medicaid paperwork so many things I don't or can't produce proof about.
