Funny- my mom is unipolar MANIC (will post a pic of the totem pole she made at a later date) and SSA told her that she just needed a job with no people contact and no stress! What an illusive animal that is!

If you can find a niche, you could look into DOUA (Disabled Online Users Association). They do stuff at online auctions. You can shop garage sales, fix up stuff and resell it on auction, or shop sales and sell the stuff higher, or whatever. It would be your business and you could set your hours. People can and do make a living doing this. My mom did it for awhile selling carousel horses she restores (she should add totem poles) and made a few hundred a week. I'm also a DOUA member and I've sold stuff I've made. I make art jewelry. It is a matter of finding a niche. The niche doesn't have to involve carving totem poles, restoring century horses, or beading on line so small most people can't see it, let alone make jewelry with it. It can be YOU. YOUR business. yoU decide when to work and when to not work. you decide when to make stuff or shop for stuff and when to not do it. If you have discipline to treat it like a regular job, you should go for it!

She uses the free mental health clinic up the street from her house. Not all people are lucky enough to have this service. It is because she runs a small business and can take deductions that lower her earnings enough to allow for some social benefits. She is also crazy enough that they'd like to use her for scientific purposes hahahah

If it's that bad you should be able to get SSDI.  You need to have given meds and therapy a good try first though.

De-gnosis: ADD, recurrent depression (or maybe bpII in the guise of such), Asperger's, OCD, social anxiety
Today's Pill Menu: Dexedrine, Wellbutrin (Budeprion), Strattera, Celexa, Risperdal, and clonazepam

Muskrat trapper.

You can do it in almost every area of the country. Outside walking twice a day down by the river or creek, set your own schedule. No messy bait to fool with, critters are already dead in the traps when you pick them up. All you have to do is skin 'em, put 'em on stretchers to dry and take them to the buyer every week or so.

You also have the satisfaction of helping protect towns by preventing the muskrats from weakening levess by burrowing.

would u really like to take the life a poor muskrat? just to make a living? It could be a severly depressed muskrat dad just trying to find food for his young. animals suffer mental health issues too! Try offering him some of your zanax Perhaps next time u see a muskrat, u could ask him for his feelings and post them on crayboards, if he's feling suicidal u could help him out and then off him! Think of the old song "Muskrat Love" please

P.S. How much do u get for each critter?

Well lets see the State of Pennsylvania publishes a report on fur harvest and trapper jobs.      http://www.pgc.state...rep...t prices'

Muskrat pelt price was $3.81 three seasons ago.   Of course Beaver and Fox pelts are more valuable.   Don't bother picking up skunk pelts.  ;)

Licensed trappers have declined by 2/3 in twenty years while all indicators show a continuing repopulation of historic furbearers.

Me?  I've never trapped for money.  My neighbor David E.  showed me how about thirty years ago.  He was rather poor and his trapping and fishing put food on the table and paid bills for him, his mom and sister.  The house they lived in is now falling down. 

One of my favorite memories are watching two river otters swimming down a creek after midnight on a windless, frostbitten night under a full moon.   They played and chattered.  One hauled out onto the pier I was sitting on with a sigh and lounged for a few moments, oblivious of me just six feet away.   Called by his mate he slipped back into the water as they continued down to the river in search of fish.

On a warm sunny day canoeing down a creek, I watched a family of otters diving for blue crab some thirty feet ahead of us.  Bursting to the surface with a writhing crab in their mouths they went to a semi-submerged log that they shared as a table.   Putting their elbows on the log they gleefully crunched and snapped their way through crab after crab while casually watching us and scattering shells hither and yon.  After getting their fill they slipped away and we continued our adventure down the waterway, next seeing a beaver slither down his mud slide into the creek.

98% of us now live sanitized protected lives doing no work that our ancestors would consider meaningful.   Let us not forget that while nature can be beautiful, she is a harsh mistress and brutal.

A.M.

Sensation:  While somewhat tongue in cheek, there are and will be things that you can do. Be a bit patient.  The important thing now is to keep up with the doctor appointments, follow directions, take your meds as directed.

Best,  A.M.
