Hi Marycain. We did apply for social security disability back in August, and Larry was turned down. We got a letter from them saying that Larry did not qualify for SS disability because of his work. He had to quit work in November, we also had to close down his side business that I ran, because it was in his name, and we were not allowed to put it in my name. If we had put it in my name before we had filed, we would have been smart. The letter from SS Disability said he had to be off of work for 6 months according to SS law. We are scheduled to see our lawyer May 10 to refile. I'm not sure if this is because he had already filed once or what, but I just got the papers back out and looked at them again and this is what it said. We are going to have to appeal. Anyone could be blind in one eye and not see out of the other one to notice that he can not work. What gets me is that I know someone who has nothing wrong, except a slight limp from a motorcycle accident about 30 years ago and he draws disability, never goes to see a doctor, is not on any special meds. He goes dancing all of the time, and hang glides. I just don't understand our system!
In your lifetime, you will find that you have true friends, and those who are friendly. It is important to recognize the difference.
