I'm currently on disability for my illness and been on disability for 3 yrs now. I went to, two day of orantatation. I'm a certified now as a in home health care worker. I also got my CPR license.

I decided to back to work cuz I wanna do something with my life. My kids are getting older and I just feel its time to start working and maybe I wouldn't be so depressed and stuck in the house. I called s.s and they said I could work 20 hrs a week and they can't touch my ck but if I work more they do a percentage thing. I'm going to ease my way into work pt and if its not to stressful I'll work more and get off s.s.

I am also on disability but want to go back to school so I can get a good job. I commend you for going back to work. My voc rehab counselor was actually Surprised that I wanted to get off disability. He must see a lot of people who are happy just receiving benefits but I want to do something with my life and like you being at home depresses me.

Good for you! That is awesome that you are going to try.  I don't know if you listen to pod casts but NPR had one recently on disability. I found it interesting but depressing.
