  •  couple of questions (0+ / 0-)

    1. Why didn't you get SSDI and Medicare all those years on disability?

    2. By the time Obamacare is in full swing, won't you be on Medicare and not eligible for Obamacare (even if you are not on Medicare for some personal reason of your choosing, I think just the fact that you are eligible will make you disqualified for Obamacare)

    •  I was never 'on' disability, just disabled (1+ / 0-)

      Social Security has established an impossible double-bind for people with my disabling conditions.  I fought with them for three years until I realized that Soc Sec's structures gave the false impression of possibility while their actual procedures closed off the reality of receiving benefits.

      My (perhaps erroneous) understanding is that Obamacare will go into effect on Jan 1 2014.  I will reach Medicare age (65) in 2016.
