A lot to Juggle

Lots of stuff to deal with right now.

One new angle. Possibly going on Social Security disability. We thought at first that maybe there's such a thing as "temporary disability". Here in the States, no.

If you have a disabiling condition which prevents you from working for at least 12 months, you can try for it. But then after that, if you do get it you're considered "permenantly disabled".

Do we go on something when we're capable of working? If you're on disability, you can work a limited schedule per week. It also means relocating to a smaller place and scaling down everything to the bare minimum.

We've lost jobs in the past because we fought to maintain some sense of balance while trying to get help which didn't happen. Also, we don't want to feel robbed because of being raped and having PTSD. We don't think that's an unreasonable request.

Your thoughts on this.
