I hate to post this, but I've been gobsmacked and I'm hoping to get some useful advice here. I have fibromyalgia and IBS and am in pain most all the time. I am not yet on any sort of disability and don't have a clue how to even proceed. Doctors seem unable to help more than keep me on a regimen of painkillers and anti-inflammatories. I had thought I could sidestep this issue for awhile since my wife is working, but she has decided that we will part ways after some reasonable time of downsizing and getting our affairs in order. So, I am faced with where to live cheaply. I'm 53 and my half of the portfolio is probably *Just* adequate to get me to SS age. This is assuming a drawdown, not a "safe" withdrawal rate.

So, if anyone has anything to contribute on either disability or where to live, I'd really appreciate hearing what you have to say.
