Dh's neck and back are hurt (bulging discs). He works, but the back injury is recent, so he's having to take it easy. I've wanted him to get on disability since he hurt his neck (which was so long ago that it's actually kind of healing), but we're just barely getting by paycheck to paycheck and he has to not be working in order to apply for disability. Plus, I've known ppl apply for disability benefits and get denied many times, which is something we aren't prepared for financially.
How do we pay the bills in the mean time?
He can't keep working, especially as hard as he has to (b/c of the kinds of jobs he's qualified to do). We don't have cable, etc; we've cut all the corners off of everything and are left with 0.
