yep i havent worked in four years that belive it or not has been the hardest part of all of this
i had a heart attack on april 13th thanks to several factors prednisone plugs you up plus family genetics thanks mom and dad i really didnt want those genes :lol: they had to restart my heart three times that day
so im lucky to be here
the funny part is i feel better that i have in years especialy the first three months after the heartattack but then the lupus has flared we still havent gotten it under control but i still feel good all things considered
go here and set up a free acount http://photobucket.com then download one picture from your computer into "my album" after that go to "my album page" ond on top of that picture will be an "edit" function, click on that and your pic will show larger and on top of that will be a resize function, resize your pic to message board size and save,, then you go back to "my album" and check the box underneath the pic, then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the button to generate html and img codes,, a new window will appear with six scroll list to choose from--the fourh one down "images for message boards" will have an URL in it,, copy that and when you write a message on a forum such as i am doing now, you paste that URL into the box and preview your message and your picture should appear,, dont get frustrated it takes a little meesin around with to get it right
since you've been off for so long,, did you manage to get ssd?? Ive got a lawyer and have been denied twice,, any tips?
Fair Oaks California
yes i did get ssd i was declined once second time it went to an admin law judge he rippied the people who turned me down in his approval letter that made me feel good
ummm stick it out dont give up it took two years to get mine
have you had your docs fill out anything for social security
like a disability worksheet ?
that was a big help
i had some other issues than lupus also two back surgeries and haveing a failed fusion was helpful i guess lol
also cronic depression im on meds now that has helped
i was a pain in the you know what calling my lawyer once everyfew weeks oh showing that i was on the verge of looseing my house
im sure there is more and as i think of it i will let you know
the letter from the doc is a biggie if you can get several docs to fill it out for you that is even better i had three my family doc the rhumie and a skin doc the rumie and skin doc were big dogs i guess head of departments in denver i dont know if that made a difference?????
good luck i hope this helped and fell free to ask more ?s
I have a lawyer right now to go before an admin judge,, they say it should be a slam dunk,, I sure hope so, things are getting real tight here,, hopefully the disability on MY LOWER BACK helps too,(i really wish you would quit copying me)
Thank for your tips, ive most of it just waiting on a letter from my primary care doc,,
