Best of luck. I hope you get it, and I'm sorry to hear about your back and hand issues.
Oh, thank you :) ...at least I can still type pretty well since it's only my thumbs, so I think it'll be alright. They've okay'd me for all sorts of physical therapy, so they must think so.

:wave:What's up people? I had to go see a lawyer today about possibly getting social security for my back and hand issues. It looks like I missed a few Sergeys.
You can get SS for back and hand issues?

I guess no one wants to chat, too bad. It seems like an okay bonus.

I'm from Texas, which has been ruled by the Spanish, French, Mexico, Republic of Texas, Confederates, and the US.

I don't think any of them ate pigs' feet though. :cautious:
I'm from south Texas and they're used a lot in Mexican dishes especially menudo. Pickled isn't a thing down here though.

edit: actually menudo is the only dish I can think of that we use them for lol

The lawyer seems to think so. I have moderate to severe damage to the C3 and C4 vertebrae in my back, neck, which causes numbness and regular pain and might be the reasons why my thumbs aren't working right anymore. The thing is, I had to quit a job. The advise nurse told me to go to the emergency room, even though we were pretty sure I wasn't having a heart attack, but at the hospital they told me that I needed an MRI for starters for what they thought was Radiculopahy, basically, your nerves being compacted in your spinal column...etc. Funny name, I know, Radiculopathy.

I'm almost from Texas! :wink: One of the state border proposals was to make Texas' western border the Rio Grande River but it was eventually settled to use a line of longitude for the border. Under one of the early proposals, I would be sitting 5 miles from the border in West Texas instead of solidly in Central New Mexico.

Hmm, I'm from south Texas too.
I'm from the Valley. Moved to Austin in 91. There used to a jar of pigs feet in almost every convenience store back in the day. Source: My primary business was servicing the retail industry. Mainly convenience stores.

:) thank you. It's just kind of irritating more than anything. The pain only got really bad when I tried to did this job that involved a lot of standing. I am a graphic designer by trade but wasn't able to find anything, so did a job cashiering and minding the self checkout. It was weird. It totally did me in. I hadn't had that kind of job since I was in my 20's I think. It was really weird. How are you doing? I hope ok. They give me pain meds, but I don't need them too often and I kind of use the pain to make sure I'm not doing further damage, you know?
