I am disabled and life is very hard. Especially after giving 26 years of my life to a marriage only to be discarded like a used broken appliance. Not just myself, but my daughter and Granddaughter. It took me 23 months to get my Granddaughter back home with family and I adopted her. I thank God for the town we live in and the people here. We could never got this far without them and every day is a struggle.

You are the one who is special J. You have more love and compassion in you and you share it freely with others. :) <3 I do not appear disabled because it is all on the inside and after 27 years for the most part I am good at hiding the pain. :) Kota and you are my shining lights, always supportive and very loving. We both love you dearly. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

I am sorry Donna. :( It's not easy, but doable. It's been 9 years and I still can't trust.

Glad to see you still have your sense of humor. Lol I'm recovering from double fusion and all the titanium hardware. You've got my admiration and respect. Takes a special person to persevere through life's bump in the roads.

I am half Titanium....feeling a little robotic lately:) I have also developed a fear of large magnets! When I died they can't cremate me...they will have to melt me down:) I have experienced many high moments in my life and this stuff can't take my humor away!! Seriously.... I feel fortunate to have everything I have...and my kids and wife are great and I wouldn't change one thing about them. I would change the level of pain I have everyday....otherwise...I am doing well. Thanks for the comment Mike. I really appreciated hearing that!

My father was in a wheelchair and a double amputee. I had to manage him from the age of fourteen alone. Later when my mother died I had to manage and it was very hard indeed. We lived very lose to the bone.

When you work all your lives in jobs like my husband and I have done caring for others (he was a Paramedic for years) and then through no fault of your own via an accident (or illness) then you go to claim for one of these benefits to be told you have to go through rigourous test etc and treated like a criminal in many places because you are asking the government for money. I'ts a bloody insult! and yet foreigners can come into the country and get money handed to them as easy as pie. What...

I'ts a bloody insult! and yet foreigners can come into the country and get money handed to them as easy as pie. What is this country coming to? (no I'm not a racist, I just believe that the people who are born and bred into this country should be given the preferential treatment. but I'm starting something else up with that comment, It's just my opinion, for what it's worth).

I appreciate there are some very unscrupulous people out there who claim to have a disability when the truth is they just cannot be bothered to get out of bed in the morning and do a decent days work like the rest of us. They're not disabled, they are just bloody lazy! my husband has been off work with a bad back, he is now a student training to put some good back into the world by training to be a Counsellor. He is a good man, who lost the job he loved due to an accident after which he...

They're not disabled, they are just bloody lazy! my husband has been off work with a bad back, he is now a student training to put some good back into the world by training to be a Counsellor. He is a good man, who lost the job he loved due to an accident after which he now has a metal rod in his back. yes he gave up for a while, but with support from me and our family and true friends he is back on track and enjoying what he does again. Doctors should help more people to have counselling not just give out anti deptidepressents willy nilly and encourage them to get more exercise, it makes u feel amazing. and the government need to care more about the real people in our country, instead of just making the rich richer and the poor poorer.

The total budget for the disability program is $9.8 billion. If every single participant is fraudulent it doesn't even comare to the $21 billion tax credit that we gave to Exxon.

My Brother Doug has been battling Parkinson's for over 20 years. He is always Positive, Proactive and Beautiful.

My Brother Doug has been battling Parkinson's for over 20 years. He is always Positive, Proactive and Beautiful. When President Obama took the oath for Presidency one of the first initiatives he signed was to Overturn the Bush's No Stem Research, which could help generations with Parkinson's and MS....and the Republican Congress has fought him all the way. Doug was an extremely Active man, playing Tennis, Rollerblading, Bicycling and Working out in the Gym. About 12 years ago when the reaction to the drugs he had to take was worse than the disease itself, he had an operation at NY Hospital in New York, Magnetic therapy. The Surgeons put instruments in his brain and his chest so that he could turn his shaking on and off and so he could take fewer pills. Doug is now at the point where he loses his balance and his throat closes. He remains as positive as possible but it is getting hard. He is one of my heroes. He never asked for this disease at the age of about 40. The Last Thing He Needs is a President who will take away the few disability earnings he has....and it's not enough. He has worked all his life for his family and even when he was let go due to Parkinson's he created his own small business. That too is gone now, but he remains the Single most important Reason why this cause is important to me. Love you so Bro.

Disabled people are YOU and I, its a flip of a coin that NOONE has any control over, one day you have everything you ever strived for the next you can lose it in a downworld spiral..All we ask is that we have the right to life a life of dignity and respect

Amen, I have a daughter who was born with Cystic Fibrosis, there are days she cant even breath. She would much rather be going to college, working a job and enjoying life rather than spending numerous hours on machines, iv's, antibiotics and some days even oxygen. I have seen her cry because all she wants is to go to school and work a job so that she can reach her own dreams; she does have dreams and DEFINITELY deserves those dreams. This is a sore subject to me for sure. I do not think it...

Amen, I have a daughter who was born with Cystic Fibrosis, there are days she cant even breath. She would much rather be going to college, working a job and enjoying life rather than spending numerous hours on machines, iv's, antibiotics and some days even oxygen. I have seen her cry because all she wants is to go to school and work a job so that she can reach her own dreams; she does have dreams and DEFINITELY deserves those dreams. This is a sore subject to me for sure. I do not think it is fair at all, after all she didn't ask to be born with a disability that literally sucks the life out of her. This is the rules of our American Government, and I THINK IT SUCKS. I bet if it was there own child they would feel the same way.

Loni, she has never let it bring her down...she was full of life and spunk as a child and young teenager she amazed me with her will to do the things that other kids her age were out doing...it saddens me that she has gotten worse over the last couple of years. I am full of admiration and love for her she is a beautiful and amazing young lady...
