    You could also consider wearing a hat if feasible dress code wise. You lose a lot of heat from your head. I used to work with a psychiatrist who saw patients wearing a suit with a kangol style hat for 40 years. I assume it was because he was bald, but it was a pretty professional environment and...

  • Agreed, the truth can be swayed and "created" at any time, that's true about anything you didn't actually conduct and experiment on yourself. It was true before wikipedia and it will be true after. I see wikipedia's ability to be edited by anyone as a strength (except when it comes to very...

  • I did yes. Wikipedia is much better than any encyclopedia used to be.

    If you were wondering what someone is famous for/who they are what website would you use?

    Well trained scientists can still be swayed by their implicit biases (or a clear financial incentive in some cases)....

  • Also I looked up that guy from the YouTube video to see what he’s famous for. According to Wikipedia he’s famous for making numerous false claims about COVID-19… perhaps not the best person to take advice from....

  • Just bumping this back up in the hopes that someone else has utilized or considered ABLE accounts and can chime in.

    Now that I think about it I probably don't need a doctor's note since I was on SS disability prior to age 26 and my condition never changed. If anyone gives me a hard time...

  • idk what kind of DMEs you’ve had in the past, but mine take three months to replace things so long as it’s an easy fix.

    No way i can wait that long when I pop a tire or lose a caster or wear through my wheelchair back, so I’ve been replacing those out of pocket from the beginning....

    replied to Psyllium husk powder dosage
    in Care
    I take about 6 grams (I weigh it on a kitchen scale that I use for cooking). It comes out to a little more than half of a spoonful (like a regular spoon for eating cereal or whatever). I don't think you need to be precise. The dose listed on the label says take 9 grams, but I started lower, figuring...

  • Thanks i I’ve got a DME, not a big fan of them, but that’s more my bitterness about having to cough up $175 to pay them for the 15 minute “install” of four bolts on my seat back. Then of course I had to go and properly tighten the bolts and adjust the back myself.

    I wish insurance...

  • Can I get insurance to pay for casters/upholstery?

    In the past I’ve always just paid out of pocket for this stuff, but back then I had cheap rollerblade style casters and now the frog legs ones I have are pretty expensive. Also the back I got with my chair wore completely out so I bought an aftermarket one out of pocket, but I’d really like another...

    replied to Jealousy
    in Life
    I sometimes wish I could do stuff, but that thought never lingers very long and I don’t think I would say I’m jealous of anyone, I just miss what I lost.

    Even those thoughts don’t last very long. I just gotta remind myself that I’m a BMF (like it says on Jules’ wallet) and I’ve...

  • Just to clarify, you want someone who it sounds like is going to be your sole beneficiary who is also your employee (and legally married to you?).

    I think this is going to be a tough sell for the prospective employee, and personally, I wouldn't trust my primary caregiver to have a financial...
