How time flies! Lots has happened. Geez, I have been absent for a year, at least? Left the homeless shelter a bout 6 months after getting there (November, 2005) Because I was disabled, I qualified for an apartment. I had my hearing before the administrative law judge in August of 2007, got my first lump check from SSI for $14,000 in October 2007. Paid off all the creditors I owed (the ones I could find). Bought a house with the remainder that was owed to me and moved out of Cleveland back to my hometown Toronto, Ohio in April of 2008. The house is keeping me quite busy!
