Generate income.

You can type, drive, etc.... You CAN make money.

Whether it's a wall Mart door greeter or what.

I know a guy who gets SSDI due to his COPD. He can barely walk across a room, but he started making pottery.
Makes a few hundred a month.

Something many people do is buy and sell things.
I know a retired couple that go to yard sales and auctions and then sell in their booth in a junkteak store.
Gets them a few hundred a month.

Coins, guns, computers, tools, cars etc.

When I was a kid we lived in a house my dad built on land my parents bought from a guy who broke his neck wrestling in college.
He could move one finger a little. Had a pencil taped to it so he could dial a phone.
He made a living with real estate.

I am medically retired from the USMC, so I have a clue.

I live in Oklahoma and have been told to contact various organizations for help, and I have but they've been of no help at all, may as well just tell me I'm screwed. Just not sure what to do long-term.
I am curious -- what do you do all day?

And you say you are disabled, ok - but how? Are you able to do anything, move around, etc....
Need more information.
