Update after a long time:
On April 17th I suffered a big setback due to ovger-exerting myself trying to exercise too much. I am not certain but I may have had another stroke. I went into the hospital twice in April. My progress in the last 3 months has been slower than last year after the stroke on May 11th. Now my brain has trouble estimating spacial differences and I get a feeling as if I were carsick if I venture outside or ride in a car.
I had been doing better but now I am back to square one.
I filed for bankruptcy on July 26th and it will be discharged.... so now I am a bankrupted person. And I am broke. But at least I don't have to worry about going to court because it is difficult even to get out of the house most days and get to anywhere like a courthouse.
I don't have internet, couldn't afford it. Luckily some loose signal comes and goes near where I am living so I get intermitent internet about 10% of the time. This allows me a little google and email time.
My reconsideration for Disability was denied yet again last week. I have an attorney and she informed me that we now have to appeal again and will probably take about A YEAR to get a hearing in front of an administrative law judge. if I had to work or die, I would die.... it's that simple and the SS (Social Security) won't even give me an evaluation. So that is frustrating because I am looking at becoming homeless again and didn't expect the disability to take this long...... I have been filing for disability for over a year now.
The good news: Today I found out that I am 100% covered financially for medical care through UK neuroscience and psychiatry. This means that I can finally get medical care and treatment. God I hope I am not setting myself up for another let-down. There have been so many negatives that a positive seems too good to be true.
And my attorney is confident that I will receive disability once we go into court. Thjis will apparently lead to a large back-pay amount that would be a lot of money. This is good news but I need money to live now and not a lump sum later. UGH!
But I am trying to think about the positives with getting some medical care finally.
