    Employed seasonally part time, once I get a few health issues sorted out I'm going to look for full time, I think i need to grow up & get a "real job"

      I work full time for the National health service in London - over here workplaces have to make "reasonable adjustments" for disabled people - they used to largely ignore this but it's getting much better and working for a large organisation means they are very good at ensuring everything is as i need it.

              Domestic engineer? The most valuable but yet noticed. I any person that holds that, because I did both for 10 years and it was tough for my son and I yet I paid insurance and child support to his Mom who left us.

                  Do other people who work full time (i'm including parents in that - can't think of a more full-time job!) find they get much more tired since they were injured? I seem to be exhausted all the time these days and i don't think it's my age - i'm only 32!!

                      I find I go down as the week goes on. I just like to get out of this dang chair. Do the math I get up at 5:15 am, couple transfers to wo work at least they ALL day in wheelchair and 5:15 pm if I am lucky so we are doing hard time at work. I really get pissed at my boss for not getting me a chair because I am all over the building. I do like to move around a be active but just a few minutes out of this wheelchair makes a big difference. I sometime sneak into an empty room so I can lay on my stomach and let my legs spazm out and it fell like a pain reliever.

                          I'm 21yrs post and have been working full time for the last 16 yrs. Even with my sci I could work all day and go out after work and still make it to work the next day in good shape but just in the last few years its been getting harder to get up and make it to work and not be tired. I rarely go out after work and if I do I usually come in late the next day. So Yeah, I'm exhausted.

                            Internet all day

                            I was buying cars in the North Eastern United States because they were cheaper. I would bring them to Houston, Texas and sell them for a small profit. But the guys that were helping me gave up on me so i'm starting an online phone store now until I have enough to buy one of those trucks that can carry 4 cars at a time. I have a plan for cheap car rentals. It'll be like mid 90s to 2000s but instead of renting them by day it will be by the month. Like $180 a month but you can terminate the rental whenever. I'm thinking it'll be good for people who need a decent car but don't have $5,000 or more and don't want to be stuck in a 5 year lease either. But hopefull the Care Cure Community will have a place to buy nice cell phones at a cheaper pirce soon. I'm sill working on the site but its called www.quality1-cellular.com and I have only a few phones and ear pieces being that i've been working on it only a week and need to get good providers to give everyone a cheaper price than the competition.
