All these little hurdles are finally slipping out of the way. And I've learned some things about myself.
After losing my job in January, I was suddenly faced with the prospect of living on about a third of the money I had been bringing in. And I had no insurance as of the day the job was gone.
Know what? I can live on what I getting from Social Security. Well, I will need to supplement a bit, but I'm really close.
I learned I was really bad with money, before. I'm much better with it now.
I have Medicare, now. A and B. And I have medical benefits from the VA. As it turns out, my diabetes and my heart disease are considered, by the government, to be "Service Connected" - the result of exposure to Agent Orange.
That was my biggest hurdle. Insurance - and getting my meds.
The other hurdles are financial and we don't need to go into them, here. But they are, slowly, being picked off and taken care of.
I have learned some patience.
Rather than charging into a situation and going off half cocked, I have found that taking the time to allow the problem to clarify itself, fully, will often lead into a natural solution - or at least, one that's easier to find and implement.
Now. If I could just fine a solution for my non-existent Love Life.
