My mom did not react positively at all at my suggestion that I was going to try to be happy with what I have instead of focusing on what I don't, even though I explained that this does not mean that I'm giving up all hope of ever being independent and that I will keep striving for it, just that I need to be able to accept it if it's not something I can achieve and if I will be able to achieve it, it won't be for a long time yet. I get the sneaking suspicion that she doesn't want to tell me, but she wants me out of the house sooner rather than later. I'm easier to love from afar.

Dead ends, dead ends, and more dead ends. It seems that what I need to do to get the assistance I'd need to not live with my parents is age 50 years, and I can't wait that long. Doubtless my parents would be unable to provide for me before then anyway, and then what do I do? Stuck in the place where I'm not disabled enough to get assistance but I'm too disabled to do without it.

I really relate to this unfortunately. I was born with lots of various physical & mental disabilities that I never got much help for as a kid cuz people didn't really know what was wrong with me. After I became an adult I was able to get SSI & Medicaid but that was it for my benefits. Docs in my area wouldn't accept Louisiana Medicaid so I had to pay for private health insurance witch had co-payments & deductibles & wouldn't cover mental. Over half of my full SSI when towards my needed medical expenses. As for me being independent & working, the best jobs I can get are minimum wage type stuff & it was a major struggle for me to find & get the jobs I've had. Louisiana voc-rehab was a waste of my time & kept telling me I needed to assert myself which I was already doing. There weren't many programs to help disableds where I lived & I didn't have the rite diagnoses or wasn't severely disabled enough in that one specific area to quality for anything. My mom HATED me living with her & dad & kept threatening to kick me out but never actually did. I ended up getting out of that hell cuz I met my current girlfriend online(this forum) & she's also disabled in lots of ways. She has more benefits than me including housing assistance so I moved in with her. Vermont is alot more progressive than Louisiana & the docs here actually accept the state Medicaid. I also have Medicare now thou cuz I worked enough to be eligible for Social Security Disability which is a little more than the state SSI amount. I do want to get a part time job where I could still keep my benefits but have something to do & a little extra money coming in. We really could use it now but we're in the process of trying to move & I'm not really sure how to go about that kinda job search.
I really wish you luck dragonsanddemons.

I've already been up for an hour. Day shift sucks. Afternoon shift sucks too. Switching back and forth merely compounds the problem. :|

I'm such a lazy bastard. While my GF was away I have used every possible plate , bowl , dish , cutlery item rather than wash them. I now have the Mt Kilimanjaro of washing up items to do before she gets back :(

I have an idea! Just leave them all for her to do! Tell her she's always great at washing up and you thought she'd like the opportunity to show her love for you! Win-win! :heart:

My mom guilt-tripping me for wanting to complete homework for my Spanish class instead of going to the store with her to buy groceries.
