    So...imagine my shock and amazement when I get the mail today and find out my unemployment got approved! It's not a ton of money, but it's a whole lot more than the $60.00 per month I was looking at until the hockey season starts again in late October. If I could do it without ruining my knee further, I'd do a happy dance! LOL

    I just figured it out. My income will now exceed my expenses by darn near $50.00 per month! LOL LOL LOL

    (expenses being my phone and personal items...if it wasn't for my mother, I'd have been living in a cardboard box down by the river months ago)

    Surely you should start repaying your mother, say by $50 a week?;)

    Well that's good to hear, I take it your disability never got approved?
    Sorry I lost track I suppose :-o

    I'm not eligible for disability because I am "employable" in areas other than my chosen industry. They do not take into consideration that no one, especially in Michigan, is going to hire someone on crutches with a pre-existing injury requiring major surgery when there are 150 people applying for each position available.

    This is why I stay out of political debates, particularly when they concern health care reform or welfare. :-D

    I have a friend in that position, high rise wondow cleaner, fell and smashed his heel, by doctors orders cannot do any physical labour any more but is not qualified for a desk job, yet they say he is capable... stupid governments.

    Congrats though, that extra $50 a month could get you 2 lovely feasts at MaDonalds!! :strong Yeah, I know, my priorities are all messed up :-D

    Hey, good to read that your S.S. payments have been approved. Money alone doesn't buy happiness, it's true. But it does, perhaps buy a better standard of misery.:-D
    [Costs -$50.00= Misery; Costs + $50.00 = Happiness. Old Jungle Saying;)]
    Take care and good luck, Tibbsy. :)

    I quote Del Boy here, "Money isn't everything and doesn't bring you happiness, but it sure takes the sting out of being poor"

    They are indeed. You could buy a PC game for that money! :neener

    Thats a very good point and one which I will have to be considering next time I have $50.... maybe a conversation with the wife about that :-D

    That is one of the big things I really hate about the system in the USA. Sorry to say this in the thread but I fell for you and know what how it sucks.. and maybe worst. But my family member has a disease in which they lose there functions of walking, talking, swalloning and anything and everything. They were denied by Gov all 3 times (3 times you can try to get it) and they refuse.. with all the paper work, test and etc.. saying this and that..They still to this day dont have help by goverment because by what the people said exactly.. was"you can get hired at walmart where the disables are hired and made there to greet people coming in" now that was very mean and mess up to say.. plus what the heck.. and now few years later in wheelchair at age 26 (and is now like an old person needing care) yet the Gov believe and still says that she does not need assistance/disabled!? Come say that to my face outside please kind sir... Another thing is I have another family member disabled said they were able to get job else where.. well they cant do nothing as well, cant stand, cant barely move, just horrible. Anyways after very exspensive lawyer fees and etc..to fight gov they finally got there good 400 bucks a month (after 3 years of no income) and living in a house/bills adding up.. Thanks gov..(plus no back pay) but oh well.. Gov is Gov.
