  • Oh howI miss You all-So much has happend!!

    In December I underwent a cystosocpy and retrograde dylogradm,acucise endopyelontomy. It was the hardest surgery I had ever had to go through. I have been recovering . I am comming back slow and easy. I was at my witts end. On top of that I was denied for Social Security Disability. I am going to have to reply because my time ran out. I was planing on retaining a Lawyer, but I will once again have to push on. I could use any advice that any of you have concering in this area. From what I could tell, it seemed that they looked right over the fact that I even had IC. Even with all the documntation. Please, Please help me! I am so worn out. I am writing again. I have missed you and you have always been in my thoughts. CATAMIA &lt;meow&gt; Ps. I thank you for all your help in the past. My angles watch over you and keep you out of pain!!! mailto:[email protected][email protected]</a> [img]confused.gif[/img] [img]confused.gif[/img]

    Welcome back [img]biggrin.gif[/img] sorry to hear of your new problems
    When you re-apply send back every thing you started with and more...there are new articles here on the ICN and you can check the ICA for new ones too.....make sure that you have all of your dr's behind you 100% and have them write personal letters for you....follow thru to make sure that they do it, ask for a copy of the letter just to make sure that their nurse isn't just telling you that it's been taken care or. Every time they send you another one of their stupid forms to fill out, get out your old form and make sure that you answer it the SAME way you did the first time. I believe with my whole heart that they ask the same stupid questions over and over just to screw with you. It got so bad that I was putting down 'see answer to question #3' but I made sure that I crossed all my t's and dotted all of my i's.....and I made sure and sent back the papers the day after I had gotten them. I think what helped me the most with my case was the fact that my dr's did the personal letter writting for me. What ever you do, don't give up!!!!!!! We are entitled to the little amount of money that we get!!!!!!

    tons of hugs~
    Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".

      Teri said it all and a little reminder that almost 99% of the time, a person is denied 3 times automaticly, even though you have all your t's crossed and your i's dotted. I eventually retained a lawyer and handed him the paperwork, sign several forms of release for doctors and hospitals, so all I had to do is notify him anytime I had to have anything done. How wonderful was that? The lawyers are not allowed to collect anymore than 10% or $2500.....Also, the Social Security office will withhold the first 5 or 6 months benefit monies if you become elegible. It took me a total of 26 months to become elegible. Don't give up, just keep after them and I pray that the stress will not make you more depressed. Let us know what happens, Tx-Brenda
