 After months of B.S., red tape and stupid questions I got my review results in the mail today. I am still disabled. Duhhhhhh ! What a load off of my mind at least for a while. I was really not looking forward to having to fight Uncle Sam again. They say they will review me again but dont say in how long. Always leave that doubt in your mind dont they ? But I may just sleep tonight. Thanks for all the prayers and support you guys.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

If you weren't disabled before, jumping through their hoops would have put you there now. They're just being sure that you don't get well while you're enjoying your disability.... by making sure that you can't stop worrying. Anyway, glad that you got through OK.
