Susanmb,

What I would do right now is look for ways to do so extreme LBYMing. Then I would look for any job you could do, that your medical problems can handle of course, and do it. It would be a shame to pass up on full benefits when you are so close.

It looks like you are fairly new to the Fool boards. Have you read through the boards that discuss LBYM?

In short, I'd do whatevever it takes for that short of a time. Live with someone else and rent your home out. Rent out a room. WOrk in a convenience store. Basically, putting yourself in survival mode so you can make it.

I'll cross post this to the REHP board. IMHO, that board has some of the smartest posters in Fooldom.
