SPECIAL EDITION - THE latenight GRIPE SHOW
So you say you have a disability, yeah me too! All I can say is so what, sure it sucks and lots of things are not fair. We still must live life. It comes down to what we are going to do with our life. I have spent years bumbling around since I acquired my brain injury. I did everything out of order, I got some of the worst help you could imagine. By the time I understood what was happening my whole life was gone. Almost everyone I ever loved was gone. My life was in ashes.
But again so what. All I can do is kick my own ass for my part in this. But now I am ready to live a life that I value. One that fits what I want. Ready to open myself up for those relationships that make life worth living. Do the things that my heart tells me. It is going to be different than before because I am a different person. But you know what it is going to be better, I am going to love deeper, care more and laugh harder. Everything I have been through living with my disability is part of what makes me great.
Join in tonight gripe away maybe some tough love thoughts can help you, maybe not but at least we can share, complain our heart out and have a good laugh doing it. YOU KNOW YOU WANNA JOIN SO DO

For many years, as far back as the 1970’s lots of people have always been turned down when they applied for disability. The social security office seemed, in the past, to be no help at all. It is now, after the Millennium, 2015, and sick people, people who are legitimately disabled, are still being denied Disability Benefits.
