The Road Not Taken...

That is the road I have chosen to take. I am going to use an attorney up here as opposed to one in southern Wisconsin. Rather than ramp up for social security/medicare ramp up for financial opportunity. Try to set myself up so I can afford Wisconsin High Risk Insurance and live well while living with alpha1.
