Social Security Update

I received in the mail today more updates about my social security disability claim. It's now been sent to medical evalution and they mailed me a "fatigue questionnaire" ... there is only so much explaining that can be done about "fatigue" It consisted of about 10 question that ranged from daily activities to how many naps i take a day etc. I tried to be as detailed as possible when talking about how it effects me each day. I just hope I wrote enough for them. I mailed it out today. *crosses fingers* I'm glad it's coming along though, I know it's a long process.

Dealing with state disability is such a drag i've only received 1 check from them so far and it was only for august 21-26. So i'm still waiting on my next check that should be two weeks this time. I hope it comes soon. I get paid tomorrow but due to me not working so much my check is a dollar short of my car payment, thankfully it's not more then that. So i'm still able to pay it. God i'm so stressed! I was so tired today from working last night that I skipped classes today and went to work tonight because I just couldn't get out of bed this morning.

On a brighter note I called Humira to set up the patient support program and what not. I still don't have an appt set up with my rheumy yet because of my SLOW insurance ugh. && as of dec 1 i will officially be off my dad's insurance and on my own through work. It's going to be about 32 bucks each paycheck but at least I can continue my medications. My rheumy visits will spike up from 15 per visit to 55 freakin bucks. Ouch. Looks like i'll be seeing him as little as possible.

  1. You should expect a lot of forms and questionnaires to fill out when you're applying for disability benefit program. The reason is that they have to make sure that you're medical condition really affects your ability to work. If you want the process to get easier, you should hire a legal expert who will guide you throughout the process. Likewise, regular consultations with your doctor is important, so that you can keep updates on your medical condition. This will help you prove that you deserve to get the benefits. Well, I just hope that your application got approved in the end.
