my advice: Play games
It worked for me when i was young
Thoughts and prayers are with you all the way from australia mate! Hopefully you can find some work real soon
there ya go..........Wish I was young again,.
i'll look through my bookmarks and post the best ones/most consistent ones for surveys. Just gimme a lil bit.
Awesome Alien!!!! If you want you can just shoot them to me in a PM. either is just fine bro.
I'm really late to the party but better late than never. Bro first off I'm really sorry to hear this man. Why does these kind of things always happen to the good peopl heh? I really hope the best for you man and I feel terrible finding out about this. Anything you may need just please let us know however you can.
As far as your original question I can't really think off the top of my head but there must be tons of jobs.
One I am familiar with but not sure what the requirements are but for sure you can do at home. What about brokerage? I work in the import and export and logistics industry and I have worked with a few custom brokers over the time that work from home. Might not be what you are looking for but it's something you may look into. But like I said, have no idea what kind of requirements you may need for that. Regardless, let me know whatever you need bud. My prayers are with you.
I'm sorry to hear about your skin condition. Hopefully the company you work for does the right thing and puts you on paid medical leave or something.
As for at home work, I hear amazon is hiring for that very type of job right now.
Damn it! Stinger I'm sorry to hear about your condition... I hope it goes away quickly for you buddy. About social security only being half of your pay might not be so bad when you think about it. You probably spend anywhere between 20-30% on fuel and food at work and now not having to drive and eating at home should be cheaper. So 50% less my only be 20-30% less. I know it's not great but it should help a little. A couple of years ago when I had knee surgery I was laid off for 6 months and I was freaking out because it was 50% of my pay gone, but once money started flowing in, and I seen how much I spent just going to work things were not so bad. If you can pickup one of these online jobs then things might turn fairly good minus the health problems.. I hope things start looking up for you and your family buddy.
Ya know, I had never really considered the expense of driving back and forth to work. That is one expense that I would not have to worry about for sure. Good thinking MW!!!
Update: After some talking with the company President and working some things out, something pretty frigging amazing happened.
He is going to have me working the office and dealing with the machine shop customers for 24 hours a week, which will allow me to keep the medical insurance. I explained to him that 24 hours a week would pretty much kill me financially speaking. He told me that I was a big enough asset to the company and they did not want to loose me, that the company is willing to add in the extra 16 hours a week in pay to equal 40 hours!!!!!!!
Made me pretty much tear up when he explained that too me. They are willing to spend that much money to keep me!!
Wow bud.... that news brought tears to my eyes too! OMFG there are still good people out there.
Humanity has a chance after all
Gave me a little welling in the eyebulbs, too.
Like I always tell people, hard work always pays off in the end. I'm sure they would have been more than happy to get rid of a slouch in your same position. What the company is stepping up and doing I'm sure is pretty humbling, but it's also a good testament to the job you have been doing up until this point. Nice work, glad to hear good things about a Montanan turned Wyoming sheep buster
Now that just made me laugh out loud Alex!!!!!!
Damn man, sorry to hear about this, My thought and prays are with ya bro!
I am glad your company is stepping up and doing the right thing~
That truly is a blessing!
Hope you are doing OK brother!!
Well damn you must be able to suck a golf ball through a garden hose son! NICE JOB! (No pun intended)
Just to let you know what happen to your skin is what happens to me when I walk into a church.
Wow this is great news buddy. I am glad things are going in your favor.
I've not known you for a long time, but with in that time I know you are an amazing person and you know what they say, "Amazing things happen to amazing people!". Or at least I think that's what they say... lol any way it sounds good..lol I'm glad things are looking better for you buddy! This news has really made my day!
Freak'n awesome!!! Glad that they appreciate you. I agree fully with Mindweaver
Oh that's absolutely amazing!
I'm so incredibly happy for you!
Now that you have a job figured out, I particularly hope that the medicine keeps your symptoms under control!
There is truth in that. Last month or so there was a story on 60 Minutes about video games helping pain. Injured war veterans were playing a game where they moved through a course throwing snowballs at things. They were feeling less pain then if they were on opiates.
Sorry to hear of your condition stinger. That is awesome to hear how your employer is treating you. God speed to recovery.
This completes my day man, knowing this happened to you definitely brings a smile to my face brotha. I'm really happy for you and glad there is still good people out there man. See, things always work out dude
oh, TMM and his posts
I know; right? Mailman, your such a clown.
Does anyone know of where, have insight, or have a cheap wheelchair? Walgreens wants $196 per month to rent one of the damn things. I had no choice but to rent one for a month. Of course my health insurance will NOT cover the cost because I am not permanently disabled.
Perhaps check a Goodwill or a PTA or something? My hall here actually has one that we scored at a Goodwill for $5.
I assume that your area has a local Craigslist, you could browse over that or post a Wanted ad.
Any other durable medical equipment shops in the area?
Amazon has quite a few listings..
This one is under $130 w/free shipping:
