However, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis this past year, and realize that I'm not in a position to continue sitting at a desk all day typing. Hence, the reason I started a business. I want to have the income coming in to take care of myself in the event (knock on wood) that I eventually become "disabled".

Can I ask what kind of business you are starting? From what I know of MS, I would think that a "typing" job would be easier to continue with if things got bad, than most of the kinds of activities involved with running a business, at least for the kinds of businesses I would think of getting involved with.
