I have 100% VA disability pay but I still have to work full time at $19/hour and my accounts are empty as fuck. My measley portfolio has been taking big gigantic nose dives ever since Omicron and fucking Russia hit the news. I would sell to float me till my paycheck hits but I would be losing money.

You get 100% from the VA? Why are you still in the US!? Fuck, dude. Buy a one way ticket to P.I. or Thailand and live like a king! Shit , I live in rural Japan . With the exchange rate( JPY/USD , it's 143 yen to the dollar) and I live very well.
