Brief LTD Update

Regarding the post, “Have Disabled Spouse, Will Not Divorce,” I just wanted you to know that I was sent a note by the Congressman’s aide and they are reading the items. They have thanked me and are looking forward to more.

Thank you all. I’ll keep you posted.

Also, I finally sent in my application for the Institute program. I’m praying I can pull it off even though there is no respite for this.

Thank you for your ideas for the EP fair. I’ve shared them ever so briefly with my counterpart and another person and they like them. My meetings on this start Monday. I’ll keep you posted.

Big hugs! I’m off to do taxes! Thank you Jane!!!!!

Tomorrow I am hoping to participate in a disaster drill.

About Roaring Mouse

Profile photo of Roaring Mouse
I am a G-d speed caregiver for a spouse who had a spinal cord injury, syringomyelia, autonomic dysreflexia, TBI x 2 (Tramatic Brain Injury), complex regional pain syndrome and two shunts.  I've been with for over two years now and have actively participated in the Caregifter Essay program. As an Emergency Management Disability Liaison for a nationwide disability disaster response non-profit, I work to engage both disaster responding and the disability communities to network and collaborate on disaster planning while educating and advocate both on the importance of the topic.  In my spare time I volunteer at a local spinal cord rehab therapy center gifting both the clients and the caregivers with resources and silly jokes so they leave with a smile.

    TAXES? I did those last year, do I have to do them again. I’ll start Monday :-)

    Thanks RM for the link. Part of my role as Caregiver is also the financial affairs of my parents. Two sets of Federal taxes each year, multiple states, does not equal fun. I have professional help and it still isn’t fun.
