    I am a computer programmer and my insurance pays for most stuff that I need, including 100% of a new chair once every 36 months.

    I worked f/t as a speech language pathologist and my DME suppllies were covered under my company's insurance.

    My husband (L1) just went back to work as a police dispatcher. He is on the same insurance as when he got injured so we don't have to worry about pre-existing conditions. They cover pretty much everything.

    I used to work with a SCI guy (have no idea what his injury level was, knew nothing about SCI at the time) who started in health insurance customer service and worked his way up to a sales rep. He, of course, had awesome insurance working for the company.

    Police & Fire Dispatcher. Customer Service at my local natural gas company but then the police job came along a month later. Switchboard Operator at my local hospital. Data entry clerk. Even worked at a pizza joint answering the phone, working on their computer billing - even scrubbed the toilet a few times - blech!

    I've never been fired and always left on good terms.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    I've been running my own business doing doing web sites for over 7 years now. It doesn't provide enough for my own insurance yet, so funding comes from my father's employer.

    Make the best out of today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Nobody knows that better than those of us that have almost died from spinal cord injury.
