    Default Disabilty APPROVED!

    It took a year but today I was APPROVED for SS! As of this moment SSI (which covers medicaid until my medicare starts in two years) is still pending but at least I know we no longer have to live on $300 a month!!

    Thanks to all of you that have kept me sane during this past year. I love each and every one of you!

    YEA Mari!!!! What a relief!! I'm so glad you can finally get the care you need and not have to worry as much. Living on SSA is hard but it's doable and knowing how much you'll have every month really does remove a lot of stress.

    Thanks everyone! I took my daughter to the doctor today and for the first time I wasn't freaking out because I had to use that 25 bucks! I am still waiting to find out about the Medicaid and SSI which will give me some insurance type of coverage but I got this victory and I am going to enjoy it today!

    After a bit of crying and dancing around I begin to think about the medicaid/medicare and then my niece, the one that has helped me through all of this, said the best thing in the world. "allow yourself to enjoy this victory. You earned it. Start worrying about the rest of it a week from now if you have to but today, enjoy the moment"

    That is what I am doing. I am enjoying the moment!
