Do you get to do outdoorsy stuff?
Basically my gov funded insurance pays not just for Dr.s and shit which I rarely use because I'm pretty healthy but for my wheelchair and any repairs I need (can easily run in the thousands for repairs and tens of thousands for a new one) and my Personal Care Attendants which allow me to live independently. If I work I lose that insurance and getting private insurance would be prohibitively expensive.

Outdoorsy stuff? I mean I get out often but I live in a big city close to downtown and camping and stuff like that isn't really my thing.
