Might As Well Jump – prompt for the Daily Post

Might As Well Jump

What’s the biggest risk you’d like to take — but haven’t been able to? What would have to happen to make you comfortable taking it?


I would have wished I could have gone to a regular college and finished it. I took one semester and got pregnant.

To do it today I would have to get well enough to get off SSDI and pay off my old school loans that are deferred since I am permanently disabled. Can’t see a miraculous cure coming along for everything that is wrong with me so I will have to pass. Be too scared still to do it anyway.

  1. I too know the conflict of being stuck in a disability. It sucks.

    Sometimes you can just monitor a class and see how you do. There are also a lot more on line classes. I take free classes on All Poetry where I write poetry and prose so it stimulates my brain and keeps me actively learning new things. Don’t give up on your dreams because you are disabled. 🙂

      Thanks guys for the pep talks. I write a lot of prompts to keep my brain active. And now I am writing for a blog so researching for stories for the blog on Bipolar Disorder. I know a lot about that since I have had it for 50 some years.
