16. Me Too

 

I am grateful I was able to work as long as I did - SSDI is a life saver.

I never thought I'd become disabled, disabled....I've always been disabled with polio, but then when I was 32
a new thing called post-polio-syndrome hit me like a ton of bricks. But I kept working and looking for help, when there
was no help available for this new thing. I worked another 10 years and I was miserable.

I am grateful my peers lobbied congress to include PPS into the disability book as a permanent disability.
I was pleasantly surprised when we also received money for our kid until he was 18. I had no idea - that's how ungreedy
I was - just desperate to be at home vs the torment of working 40 hours per week in head to toe chronic pain and weakness.
