I might get booted off the llist for saying what I am about to say, but I
can handle that especially because my inbox has over 400 unread messages
today, LOL! But part of the problem here is that certain people don't bother
to think outside the box and come to realize that there are varying needs,
even among the blindness population. I don't know why this is, but it is
preventing a lot of us whose needs may be slightly different than the
average blind or visually-impaired person, from seeking any kind of a life.
For instance, I personally cannot understand why blindness can only be
reduced to the level of a mere physical nuisance, when over 70% of us are
unemployed. But I guess I'm getting rather philosophical here aren't I? I'm
not blaming any one person for this, but if all this bickering among blind
people continues, nothing is going to get done.

Subject: [bct] Re: Problem with SSI!
The moral to this story should be if you are on SSI then don't get married. If you did get married and your payments did not decrease then you should have known there was a problem. There is some provision in the SSA laws that allows some type of waiver if there is an over payment. You should call someone at ACB or NFB that specializes in this area. Besides if you have no income then your $29,000 bill is uncollectable. So the question really is how to play the game and continue receiving payments paying as little as possible back.
