hi everyone. i have been on ssdi since about 2 years and 6months ago. i was in a major car accident and got a large settlement. i have most of my money with this wonderful woman who has my money diversified. i am in bonds and stocks and i will earn about 20 k in dividends and all the stocks she has me in are doing great. prior to finding her i had major losses because a broker ripped me off and i made a good living. he took my account feom 150k to 20 k. it was horrible.
anyway i kept 50k and opened up an account to try and day trade a little to keep my mind busy. i have 6 herniated discs, i have had 3 surgeries. 14 epidural steroid injections, 6 facet block injections. 2 plus years of physical therapy, trigger point injections every week and more. i still need 2 surgeries, but i just can't take any more.
i have day traded that 50k into 70k and needless to say i have over 100k in carry forward losses. i have a long way to go.
can i get in trouble by day trading on my bed? i need the income. i want to make sure my wife is taken care of. i am 44 and many years from a retitement age, but i am permanently disabled. i walk with a cane and wear a neck brace all the time.
any help would be appreciated.
