Re: Might as well get a thread started...
Man, sorry to hear that.
My dad went through rough times like that. He was told by the doctor he'd never be able to work again and wasn't even 50 years old. Apparently Social Security refuses to pay 100% disability to folks that are under 50. Sooo...they didn't pay him a dime until he turned 50 and he had to get a lawyer involved in the matter.
If it's worth building, it's worth over-building.
