I always wonder what happened when long-term members have gone silent - I just hope they are either very busy, or (shudder) no longer are long-haired. Anyway, glad to hear all is well with you, though life has apparently kept you occupied.
If I were you, I'd consider a new/refurbed computer once you are financially able to. You can get a factory refurbished one for about the price you'd pay to fix yours. You could also consider an inexpensive Android tablet, that would let you access the MLHH at home, and your email. You can buy basic ones for less than $50, a decent one like a Samsung Galaxy will run about $300. I have a $35 no-name one, it gets little use, so I went cheap.
Did your partner have some form of federal disability such as SSI or SSDI, or was this a through a work-related insurance policy? It's very unusual for someone to lose their SSI/SSDI, but it does happen. Glad a lawyer was able to fix that situation, but if it was federal, I believe he's entitled to lost benefits for the period he didn't receive benefits, at least if it was SSDI, SSI is a bit different.
Do miss your outdoor pics and that hair (as I'm sure many here do), but happy to hear all is well overall, even if life put a few bumps on the pathway. Drop by once in a while, when you have a chance. And hopefully things will get better for you & your partner as you hurdle over those bumps. You are an inspiration for the young newbies that find their way here, and even the older ones wanting to make the journey (cuz you're never too old to start) because you've kept it long for so long. I'm always happy to see the long-term members here, encouraging the newbies. And I've been here a long time myself, as a female supporter of guys choosing to wear hair long. Take care, and don't be a stranger!
