Shit hits the fan…

If you’re new here, check out the SSDI Application Adventures tag, as it’s an update to the saga.

When we last left off in May of last year, I had gotten a letter that my hearing request was submitted and it would be 8-10 months before I got a hearing date.

Well, since then we’d passed the two-year mark since I started this whole journey with the government. Yesterday I had gotten a call from my lawyer and he stated that my hearing was set for August. He then went on to say that I am not physically disabled enough in the eyes of the law, but my mental disabilities may just be “good enough” to pass me. However, the report that the psychologist I saw in February of last year wasn’t good enough and my lawyer is advising me to see another psychologist for a more thorough workup. Thing is, my insurance is ending in a week, as I turn 26 on the 3rd and as such, my medical gets booted. So, it’s going to cost me anywhere from $500 to $700 just to have my brain picked….again. As if the first time wasn’t stressful enough!

So I ended up applying for general assistance that will [hopefully.] give me Medicaid, food stamps and a bit of cash. I got a call from that office yesterday saying that they received my application and would be setting up an appointment to finish the rest of it. If I happen to get the GA, I may just forget pursuing the disability case because apparently no matter how disabled I may be, I’m not disabled enough in the eyes of the law.

I highly enjoy having conditions I certainly did not ask for. IT’S FUCKING PEACHY.

I would probably still be at my job now if I could do it, but I cannot.

Present me with work that doesn’t aggravate ANY of my conditions. Prove me wrong.

I highly doubt a job will let me lie down for a few hours on paid time because my “spoons” have been depleted.

Find me a job that lets me do that, and you might just have a deal.

For now, this entire thing is fucking bullshit and I’ve had it up to here.
