Remember yesterday when I told you that I got my tax return? It turns out that it wasn't. I got a notice in the mail today that I was approved for SSI and I would be getting that money every month as long as I stay in the US. So my tax return is still coming! I am so excited! I have also received a number of payments from various ptc sites so I am feeling really good right now! I was so surprised! Have you had many surprises come so close together?

Most people earn by working jobs. When you work, they take money out of your check that goes into social security and that is supposed to take care of you when you retire or become disabled. SSI is supplemental security income that they give you when you become disabled and before you qualify for disability income. I got that from February until last month and my disability started this month. I am done with chemo now and hoping that I will recover enough that I can do something productive again. Thanks for the response!

I had a recurrence of ovarian cancer. At the time I found out about it, I was teaching English in China, but when I was working in America I did what ever I could. The longest job I held was working for the state of North Carolina in the mailroom which I did for about 7 years. Other than that I did whatever kind of work I could find and usually wasn't very successful at keeping jobs because I would get bored and move on.

I just wish that I could stop being so "giving". I am too willing to let my money go and it might get me in trouble in the long run.

Something like this must have been a nice and needed Surprise and I am sure has helped make things a lot better for you. I know that money is always needed. Right now with everything going on a nice Surprise somehow would be nice, and really needed but I am just keeping positive that Good things are going to come.

No, I am not having many surprises right now at all. I am glad for you though. I have been able to cash out on a few sites recently and I am happy about that.
