I haven't been on here in awhile, I don't know whether to jump for joy or off the roof. You see I just found out I've been approved for medicaid but I had to set an appt with Social Security to apply for disability. well I did that right away and I know it's a tough process to get approved. I had already had an exam from a Dr that SS sent me to two weeks ago. It's all so mysterous because the stories of waiting years depends on a lot of things. From what I am hearing I may be in luck (.45 shooter is typing with crossed fingers) I had been doing pretty well since my last hospitilization but today I had a flareup and I'm afraid to go to sleep. Wish me good luck and put in a good word for me if you chat with your higher power anytime soon...Say Bye Spanky
