Follow-up appointment with my opthamologist tomorrow

I find it hard to believe that my opthamologist determine that I was legally blind and even if it's the Social Security Disability Administration definition of legally blind and yet they still denied me again I think it is a war of attrition if I can withstand the gauntlet of all the doctor's appointments etc. They finally give up and grant disability.

I'm looking forward to the appointment because I really do like the doctor keeping a positive attitude I do know that my vision has diminished since last year I don't think it's part of my stroke so much as just getting another year older.

Personally probably stinks more I don't know I've never died but I'm kind of happy with the way things are going right now overall.

Be blessed and be a blessing

Jay I love the way you think.  I have a brother-in-law who is legally blind and he gets around just fine.  I think our rules in Australia are easier to understand than yours seem to be.  I hope you make some progress with your application soon.

Jay I was denied three times and I cannot walk or see straight. Then I got it.but I have it for 1 year then another determination. I feel they make me work to get what I should not need to be worried about. It is ridiculous. But just give to caesar. Keep your eyes on the prize and believe that you will be ok

just stay after them give them required & more information so that they can decide based on all information. I sometimes feel sad for people who don't have spouse who is organized to deal with all the red tape government puts it & I can't imagine patient who is so down after stroke to deal with all this mess. I am so happy that I m married to accountant so he made sure our paperwork was perfect while dealing with government  beurocrates
