  • Thank you Cousin Chuck for my new Laptop!

    Hi All!

    As I go down my 2nd road to long-term Disability due to IC (and a couple other conditions, but IC is the main one)....I find myself having to be very careful with money. It's hard to go from Management pay down to 60% of my paycheck. I'm single, own my own home and have medical debt (don't we ALL have that medical debt LOL!).

    Currently in the process of trying to sell my home and move in with my 74 year old mother in another state. Until that happens, money is TIGHT. I was working from home as a travel agent and always had my work computer. But once on sick leave, IT Department shuts it down for security reasons. I found myself with no home computer, and I have so much to do to re-apply for Social Security Disability, gather the past 10 years of medical records, etc.

    My Cousin Chuck in North Carolina surprised me with a brand new sleek black laptop. It arrived in the mail today!!!!!!! I'm sooooooooooooooooooo grateful and excited. I was feeling very down and defeated this week, like a failure for having to go back on disability. This just really gave me hope and made my day.

    I have had very little emotional support during my journey with IC re: friends or family. We are working on that area in our family, but it's important to me that I can post on this website to fellow IC'ers!


    Thank you Chuck. There really are angels among us.
