When I am alone, I feel safe at home, but at the same time I feel like a prisoner. I am not able to work and I cannot stand the fact I cannot earn money for the household and some for me to just go out and buy something I like for me or for a gift for a loved one. I received a letter from Social Security and if I draw disability, the most I can get is $268.00 a month. I was a stay at home Mom for years to raise our two children and did not have a job in the workforce. Mothers do not get credit for the job of raising children. That is so sad. After the children left the nest, I got my first job, thus the late start. I did force myself to drive about 4 miles to do some business with my spouse. I'm glad I did. Tonight my mood plummetted and the tears started flowing. My legs were hurting (RLS) and I did not want to go to bed before Hubby came home from work.
