I got a letter this week from the Social Security Admin approving my disability. I applied about a year ago but was denied last summer. I got an attorney who said I would have an appeal hearing and it could take up to 18 months. I have been waiting (not always patiently) to hear when my hearing would be. I was dreading it. The idea of court and a judge just scares me. God had a different plan. Thank you Jesus. I don't know the amount of the benefit yet but should get a letter soon.
It is becoming more apparent to me that there are quite a few things I can't do any more. My arms and and shoulders not working and my back hurting and my legs going numb make things pretty difficult. I am so thankful that Dennis helps as much as he does. It has been a struggle for us with him being laid up with his recovery from surgery. He is doing quite well and is able to do some laundry here so we don't have to go to the laundrymat. That was really really hard to do that. I wish I could afford to hire a cleaning lady to come in once a week to do the things I can't. Wishful thinking I guess.
