I wish it was positive but Its isn't. I've posted here a few times about my situation but have been away for some time. I have been fighting everyone and everything it seems. i am so exhausted and drained. I can't even think straight. I really just don't think I care anymore.

First the pain clinic. You will have to read my older posts because it is too hard to revisit it all but suffice it to say....I have gotten nowhere.

I have lost my disability benefits and hours on the phone and even a case worker can't help me find out why. The reason they gave me after my last 75 minute phone call was that in 2005 I made $100.00 too much for the year, Even though I never exceeded the monthly SGA amount. Not even close. I don't know where they are getting the info. they can't/won't tell me. The woman just kept saying 'YOU MUST HAVE!" But couldn't tell me for sure where the info came from.

In October/Nov. was charged with an overpayment. I fought it and sent in all my paperwork including pay stubs and bills and the 10 page application they have you fill out. they found it was not my fault. They said they found I did not have to pay it back (which is great since I never saw an extra 6 grand that they supposedly OVER paid me) and that if i did pay it back I would not have money for bills, food etc.

Two days later I got another letter telling me they wanted info about me. The letter said they HAD new info about me (the info I gave then for the overpayment?) and said to call if I needed more info on what info they wanted (confused?) Since they didn't state on the letter what they had or what they needed I called the number and ext of the person given. After 4 detailed voice mails she never called back.

I KNOW I was calling the correct number because it was an ext. and the person on the greeting said "this is.....(.name of person....please leave a detailed message")

I also wrote letters to two different people whose names were also on the letters. No reply. I was asking these people to contact me and tell me what i needed to do. They are supposed to tell me what they want. Why give me a number and a name if it isn't going to be of any use????

what I did get, however, was another letter saying that I no longer get benefits. I applied for a request for reconsideration. The benefits should not be cut until the request is handled. They cut me off anyway. I got a bill for $400.00 from medicare. No explanation just a bill. I guess now that they cut my benefits I lose everything.

I am in credit counseling and have paid them every month for over a year and when my benefits were cut I called them to explain and they said I had two weeks to get the money or all the creditors would drop me from the program and everything would start over again. where did the money come from for that bill? My disability check. they take almost all of it.

I can't begin to tell you all the anxiety and worry i have. All the people that are supposed to help either can't or won't. This really has to do with a person just not returning my phone calls. Never even left a message to prove she tried to call. Nothing...then she makes that decision that sends everything spiraling.

I don't know why I was trying so hard to pay the creditors off. It doesn't matter at this point. They are going to start hounding me again soon and it will be like i never paid them a penny. All that money I could have used to live on that they took each month amounts to nothing now.

I have called legal aid twice and have not gotten a call back. I have an answering machine. People can leave messages. What could be the problem?

I told 0ne of the reps from social security that I was worried about how I was going to pay my bills and she told me that there should be no problem since I have a part time job.....she also said they could not tell me anything more and I should go to welfare...

I have been through things like this before but I am astounded at the fact that people can't just do simple things that can prevent this type of hardship. Some of the things that have been said to me by these people are so un-called for.

I have three doctor's appointments next week and I have no insurance. I had an appointment with my case worker last tuesday. I also signed up for Anger management classes on tuesday. I went to Anger management and then went to work for an hour. I went back to meet with the case worker and she came out and said she could not see me because i had anger management that morning.

Come to find out the insurance won't pay them for two appointments on the same day/ They signed me up anyway and then she told me I had to go. I guess its ok for her to sit in her office and do nothing while I busted my ass to get there to do the right thing to get help and then get sent away? It was my time slot. nobody else was there....assinine!

I really would love to add every detail in here to tell the whole story but its too long and boring. this little story is a mere skeleton of what the whole beast looks like.

I really do have the sense that i have done everything i could do. if i had no faith before i really have none now. I am walking around in a bubble and I can't understand how doing everything right has resulted in this mess.

What are people supposed to do? I thought there was supposed to be some type of protection, rights or rules for those of us who are disabled? It sure isn't true in my world.

It just makes me so angry how somebody can sit behind a desk, pushing a pencil and screw up somebody elses life and not give a darn. It is like she had nothing better to do so she thought she would mess with somebody else and cause them grief.

I know that it is the whole system that is messed up, but she could have atleast helped you somewhat. It is as if they get a gold star for getting rid of a client.

I can't believe that they said that they over paid you six thousand dollars. Did they show you where? Probably not because you didn't get to talk to the lady.

Try to relax, the stress from this isn't going to help your fibromyalgia any. I am sorry that you are having to go through this. I hope things get srtaightened out.

Hugs, Karen

thanks you guys. this really does stink!! As for the watchtower and the rifle? Anger management is supposed to help with that but since they made me angry i guess that's out.

I think about how nobody should be surprised when someone from social services has someone come after them. It has happened in the past. people can only be pushed so far. I have been trying to find ways to deal with this that are more positive but as of yet i have not found anything. Seems like everywhere I turn is a a brick wall. even legal Aid!!!

I hear "They are so overworked' and 'its the system" well I'm sorry but you should not be in the "helping" field if you get your jollies by harming others. I swear it seems like they are trained to be rude. they won't let you speak. Someone should try calling sometime if they never have. Its unreal.

They talk over you really loud and if you try to say anything at all they interrupt and basically tell you be quiet. One woman wouldn't even let me ask another question. she started talking over me and telling me she wasn't going to ARGUE with me and that she had already told me what I wanted to know and hung up on me.

That was the woman I asked to speak to her manager. I asked her to explain something again because it really made no sense. She cut me off and put me on hold. she came back 10 minutes later and I told her I did not appreciate her cutting me off like that and she denied it. she said i TOLD you I was going to find a manager" She did not. More lies...she said "My boss was just standing here at my desk and told me to tell you the same thing i already did" I asked to speak with the manager and she paused. "you want to talk to her?"

I said yes please. 15 minutes later (by the way...I took notes through the calls). She comes back and says her boss is on another call and can't talk to me so they are trying to find another manager for me to speak with . i say OK thank you. 10 more minutes....She can't find another manager so that info she gave me is going to have to be enough. I said Ok well can I ask you one last question? silence. I asked if she was still there...silence. so I began to ask her and she cut me off. loudly talked over me and said all kinds of things like 'I have already answered your question, I'm not gonna argue with you, my manager has your phone number and will contact you etc...Of course that last part will never really happen. Just saying whatever to keep talking as i'm saying "Just......a.......question.....

So I called back because here was my question. "how can I find out if that call was recorded I want proof of the way I have been treated and the run around I get, how long these calls are with no answer or resolution to the problem,.. Me and millions of others. Of course the rep I got this time didn't know but she was nicer to me because i said that. This was the 75 minute call. I had to explain everything 4 times and I had all my letters in front of me but they wouldn't let me tell them what they said. If I started to read from one they would interrupt. OMG Its so CRAZY!!!

They could only find some of the letters on the computer. How convenient. They can't go back far enough to tell me what they are looking at yet they can use it against me?

Bottom line here...the lesson i have learned? If you are on disability DO NOT take advantage of the fact that you are ALLOWED to have a part time job. SIX years of trouble, worry, stress. Over and over. this is just the latest. I never thought I would be 40 years old and have nothing to fall back on. No savings, nothing solid. just floating around at the whim of people who will never meet me or care about my situation.I really feel like i have done my best and Its Hard to accept that this is my life for the rest of my life

I am going to have to go back to living off just the disability money if i get it reinstated. Its so hard for me to get to work and stay there. Its exhausting everyday just to get there and when I get home 4-5 hours later I am done. I can't do a thing. My house is a mess. I can't do the cleaning and if i do feel ok i have to be sitting in a chair at work.

This is just too much. I followed their rules but they don't follow their own. And how about this? If you are allowed to make a certain amount each month without losing your benefits then how can you make too much in a year when you don't go over in any month? Well "YOU MUST HAVE!"

more stunned silence, and shaking my head back and forth. 

That's absolutely unbelievable.

Can you contact your political representatives? I dunno know, maybe they can help.

I pray something good will come out of all this for you.

I think contacting your political representitive is the best starting point you may have.  I live in Oklahoma, and know of several people that have had a problem with the system in one way or another, and after contacting their representitive, the problem magically disappeared.  I don't know if that would help (as I am sure that all reps are different in the way they consider things) but it would at least be a good starting point!

I am going to apply for disability soon but I have yet to deal with the "SYSTEM". My DH is retired military and I know how they are with having every i dotted and every t crossed.
 
I was going to also suggest you contact your state representative. What you have had to go through is more than ridiculous. Everyone has a boss they have to answer to and you need to keep climbing to the top til you get this resolved. I know you have to do this but it has to be so draining on you.
 
Hang in there.
 
luv and hugs

OMG...I cannot believe the way you were treated not once, but multiple times! That's insane! I do customer service for a job and yes, it's not fun getting calls because lets face it, the only time people call customer service for anything is because something's wrong lol. But still....EVERYONE has a boss. Holy crap, if I ever dared acting 1/10th of the way these people have treated you, I would have been booted from my job! My god...I am just astounded with how they have treated you!

I am very far in debt as well, but have decided to not go the credit counseling route because I know I need the money to live and if I give it to them, I have nothing. I wish there was some way I could help you. Is there anything you need? I could try to put together a box or something for you...

Is it just me, or does anyone else notice that it seems like the people who have illnesses get treated the absolute worst? Especially illnesses where you're not supposed to have stress because that makes it worse? It seems like if you have one of those illnesses, people make it their mission to stress you out.

I am so so SO sorry this has happened to you. I wanted to go into the Social Work field myself because I truly genuinely want to help people. They should not have insensitive rude people in those positions. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you...

Hi.  This is an amazing story.  When you deal with the government this kind of stuff happens. 
 
As far as how you possibly made too much money in one year...I think the amount they told you you could make per month was the maximum amount for one month.  I'm sure you know that but some people will only work for a few months a year so they don't exceed the maximum for the year.  So, you really need to pay attention to not only the monthly maximum but also the yearly maximum. 
 
You might try copying your letters and your questions and send the copy by registered mail...where someone has to sign for them.  You can follow that on your computer and even get copies of the signiture off the computer.  Include a letter explaining the problem but don't make it so lengthy that no one will read it.  Keep it as simple as possible and include your phone number so someone can contact you. 
 
If this doesn't work, try calling your congressman.  Someone needs to listen.

My mom is on disability. She used to work part time to supplement her income and fortunately for her, she got good advice from whoever she talked to.
Apparently, there is a monthly AND yearly limit. She never exceeded her monthly limit but she also had to take about 8 weeks off so she wouldn't exceed the yearly limit.

Her yearly limit was less than 12 times her monthly limit so she couldn't work for 12 months without exceeding the yearly limit even though she never exceeded the monthly limit. It makes no sense at all but that's what she was told

What angers me is that this is normal for the system. o matter how overworked I was at a job I always considered the questions of the customer. We have businesses and a government that only listens to the bottom line, money.

I think that folks who mistreat clients they way you have been should be fired--no ifs, ands or buts. I become really annoyed when people speak to me as if I am an idiot.

I have spoken with challenging people in government social services. Fortunately, I am so independently oriented that I do not take them seriously. they could do serious damage to my sense of self esteem if I let them.

I have heard from others that working part time is not worth it. I think a person should if they desire to or need the additional income but I have been told it is more trouble than it is worth.

Do something nice for yourself today and tomorrow. try to enjoy life and ignore the ignorant evildoers.

THank you all for reading and responding. I could actually tell you more horror stories about what I have dealt with but this is new and fresh. The others were just as bad and causeed me so much stress I will never forget them. Anyway, Here we are starting a new week and my hope that anything will be resolved is pretty much non exsistent.

Honey; Thank you so much for the offer. I am ok right now as far as needing things. I actually can get by with very little since I have been practicing for so long! I sure don't live high on the hog as they say. I'm pretty well rehearsed in reduce reuse recycle LOL! I really do appreciate that you care enough to offer though. I can make a loaf of bread and some lunch meat last a very long time. I am more worried about the mnedical bills that are going to be arriving in my mailbox.

I have decided that after calling credit counseling and having them basically tell me "oh well", that all the money I paid them means nothing when I am trying so hard...I am going to let it drop. They can send it to collections. I need all the money I can get now and there is no way I will be paying them with the money from my job. the problem is that I have a defaulted student loan too and they would not accept the payment I could afford so they sent me to collections also.

I filled out the paper work for "reasonable and Affordable payment plan and sent all the documents in along with the chart that says I am eligible to pay 25.00 per month. They sent me a letter saying "sorry but you have to pay $100.00 per month. So I resdubmitted the paperwork and they sent another letter but this letter said that if I was on medicad or any kind of social services that i could qualify for this program....so I wrote back and sent the same paper work and a copy of my medicaid proof and a copy of THEIR chart and they still refused to accept my payment amount.

 My credit has been ruined forever. I thought credit counseling was a positive step but I realized that they really aren't helping me much. They take my money and divide it up between my creditors but because I don't have enough money the bills are always considered late and a finance charge is tacked on. I am getting nowhere. I have looked into the laws and there are a few things I can do once they go to collections. Student loans have already decided that I am too poor to have my wages garnished but they will still take my taxes if I file. I just don't have the energy to care about this stuiff anymore. I always try and I always fail.

I have seriously been thinking for some time now that I need to leave my job. To explain the situation at work would be another forum but in short I work for a parks and rec dept and I am the naturalist. Anywhere you go the environment is the last thing to be considered. My boss expects me to do the work of 5 people and is not supportive of the programs that she developed...yeah go figure. It all comes down to money. Not to mention that I am in so much pain and my depression is so bad that I can barely function on any given day. I feel that having a job should make me feel like a more responsible member of society but ya know what? I get the feeling I am doing it all wrong. I don't think I will ever master the art of being a "real person". The fact that I am on disability seems to make me some kind of pariah.

I am still confused about how I could go over a yearly limit though. I kept track of all of my hours for so many years. I made sure I didn't go over. I just don't understand and it was never explained to me that I had to be careful of yearly amounts. I figured if I didn't go over in the months then I would be fine. Not so!

I have been working on a letter to send out but right now I feel defeated and have not added to it in a few days. I was going to send it to everyone I could think of that might be able to help me but I don't have the money for all that postage either.
 
I think its really wrong that the Govt doesn't want us to excell or become better people. With all the positive talk I heard today about how our country is going to pull itself up by its bootstraps etc....I guess we can only hope its true and that the Powers that be can fix these broken "systems". Oh well. I will keep you guys updated and thanks again.

Hey Telula...if you change your mind and do need anything that I can provide, please let me know. On some level, I do understand what you're saying. I haven't been able to apply for disability (I have considered it but there's no way I could live on that even WITH the part time job and still be able to pay rent or any kind of bills) but I understand about feeling like you just want to do well for yourself and it's so hard when you feel like you keep getting pulled down. I want to get a new job because mine creates SO much stress for me and I think that may actually be making my health worse. Only problem is that because of my health I'm on an Intermittent FMLA leave. That just means that once I've used up all my sick/vacation days, if I need to miss work because of not feeling well or a doctor's appointment, I can miss and not lose my job...but I also don't get paid for those days. To qualify for Intermittent FMLA, you have to be at your job for 12 months. If I got a new job, I'd have to wait out those 12 months and honestly, I don't think I'd be able to do it. I'm missing a day or two every week or every other week. Not good.

So then I considered going back to school because I feel SO...I don't know what the word is...pointless, maybe. I just feel like I want to be DOING something with my life. I feel like such a failure. I had been in advanced classes since I was in the 3rd grade and went to college. I got my associates and was progressing to my bachelors when my endometriosis hit and then a series of just craptastic events in my life followed....the rape, the domestic violence, the breakup....then it was hello to Fibro! I ended up getting kicked out of school because I missed class so much. Anyhoo, my point was that I started off SO WELL in life. Everyone had such high expectations for me. I was the first one in the family to ever go to college. And I know I can't control my health, but I feel like a failure/disappointment.

I understand what you're saying. It is so frustrating to WANT to excel and to feel like it's impossible. That will put you into a depression right there.

I know it doesn't ease anything that you're feeling, but there are some of us out there who may not have the same situation but we have the same feeling. If you need anything, please let us know.

{{{Hugs}}}

Hi Kathy,
I can SOOOO Relate to the feeling of being "pointless" I didn't start out so well but i always tried real hard and have just never got off the ground.

My friend has the FMLA thing at her job and it has caused her more stress than the illness she has. She has developed IBS and it runs in her family. When she has to call in the person who answers the calls for absences always says little things to her like "Oh you aren't coming in AGAIN....." and last week she decides to take more than one day off the woman said "You know it's NOT and entitlement."

My friend is the hardest worker and never missed a day at her last job or this job before the IBS started. Now she has been informed that she is considered an "unreliable employee" So all her life she works like a dog and finally gets a decent paying job and this happens. i really hope she doesn't have to deal with disability because she already knows all the things I go through.

She shouldn't have to tell that woman that she can't stay off the toilet! Just like I should not have had to explain to the disability rep that i can't go downtown to the office in person because I have severe panic disorder and anxiety and I'm sorry but i have always had a problem with driving in the city. here in Syracuse there is like one street you can go down and all the others are one way. I get so stressed out I feel sick and dizzy and end up driving all the way back out and around the city to try to find my way back. That was none of her business but she insisted I go there in person. I reminded her what phones are for and It is not my fault that others don't answer them!

I have been fighting with myself about leaving my job for a long time and i just feel like it is so hard to keep track of the hours and all that. especially now that i know I broke the rules 4 years ago and didn't even think I was breaking them. Its just that i really can't live on the disability alone and if I don't get it back i am stuck relying on this job where I will never be able to advance.

Anyway I'm sorry you have had to go through all the "craptacular" stuff you have. People say it makes us stronger but lately it just makes me sicker!

Ugh! I don't know what to do about it all. This forum helps some though. I just feel like If this is the way my life has to be then there should at least be some sort of protection against these monsters. Oh and the bill collectors just called. they have this message that says "Don't listen to this call if you are not so and so and if you do listen to it then you are admitting you are this person so if you are not then hang up in 5 seconds... then they count down 5,4,3,2,1. So stupid. yeah I'll call you right back!

I have a dental appointment today and it just hit me that my insurance is cancelled. I can't go now because the dentist is not something I can afford.

It doesn't really matter anyway because I am in so much pain right now i can't even think of going anywhere. probably not to my job either.

And that just makes me more angry that this is going to keep happening and I have yet to hear anything about my case!!!

Ok I have a small update. Maybe I should post in a new thread? A friend of a friend knows a girl who works for a disability lawyer. She said she would look at my papers. I can't afford a lawyer but if she looks at them she may have some advice. I have known this person for many years but not to the point where I would ask her to help me. My friend took it upon herself and I am grateful.

I have an appointment with the case worker today too. hopefully it will be better than last week!

Just an update on things. Went to the Lawyers office and the receptionist faxed 18 documents to social security. That was a week ago.still no word. The woman never called my case worker back and I had to request a meeting that could take weeks or months and in the meantime I am not getting my check. So that's it. I guess I just wait. Its strange how someone i have never met has screwed up my entire world.

My credit cards are now going to collections due to the fact that there was no money for the credit counseling people to take. They don't care either.

Not sure what to do. had a really bad night and could not sleep because of pain and pins and needles in my legs and feet from nerve damage. Fought with myself whether to take a hydrocodone but since they shorted me on my script I didn't want to so I took benadryl to put me to sleep. Last night was one of the worst nights I have had in a very long time.

I am still feeling very lost. I hope this all ends sooner than later. I can't believe they won't even respond to a case worker or a lawyer's office.

That is just ridiculous that they think they are above the law and don't have to answer to anyone. I so hope someone takes action and gets this resolved. Can you get emergency help through some organization???
 
Good luck.
 
luv and hugs
