Need your prayers

  1. I was notified yesterday that it will be 18 to 24 months wait before I get a hearing on my disability claim. My short term disability insurance runs out in December. I do not know what my husband and I will do after December. He makes less than a thousand dollars a month on his disability and our meds are very expensive with both of us being diabetics. Please keep us in your prayers that we will be able to find a solution to our problems. I know I can count on my friends here for prayers.

    I have been right there. Certainly prayers are on the way. I assume this is your SS Disability? If you do not have an attorney, it may be in your best interest to find one who specializes in SSDI.

    I do have an attorney who is excellent, but he told me that it would be a battle because it is a back problem.

    Will carry you and your family in my heart...
    hmmm...a back problem is a difficult case???...oh, I see...why oh why does no one seem to realize that we nurses do more than push pens upon papers... seems to me that we, in this profession must educate, educate, educate...has your lawyer ever seen nurses in action??? Perhaps we should make a standard "video" of the physical demands of our job... this just chaps my hide...if I were not so, ummm, OLD I think I would love to be an attorney who would represent nurses filing work injury related claims... and by golly the whole process would be handled in a very expeditious manner...I have been to disabilty hearings on behalf of friends and it galls the tar outta me when the "judge" assumes we can be given a "light duty" position...hahahahahaha....have convinced myself that if I find myself in another disabilty hearing, I will be sporting duct tape on my mouth to prevent being held in contempt of court...
    Provisions will be made for you by the powers that sure to keep us updated...
