The flexibility allows me to work when I feel well

I am a disabled senior, 3 time cancer survivor, suffer from severe arthritis in my spine, hips and thumbs. Because I became disabled I was not able to retire as I had hoped so I lived from Social Security which in the best conditions isn't enough...I have no choice because SS does not pay me enough to thrive, buy quality food, etc. Since I am covered with scars from 9 major surgeries in 8 years I have a great deal of pain some of the time, sometimes I am exhausted when the pain won't let me sleep, and I sometimes have an upset stomach from the medication I take. Obviously, I cannot work when I am in this state. Driving is something I can do….The flexibility allows me to work when I feel well. I can drive. Flexibility allows me to work when I feel well therefore not endangering anyone on the road.
