Hi Emmie, I love the way you posted this. Stressful discouraging sad stuff! I have to agree with you there. I know you can be a charector but some times life really throws us a curve ball and it's hard to always stay on top of the pitches. (my baseball analogy) lol. I'm sorry to hear about what has happened to your mom. We are dealing with the same thing with my father right now. My mom calls me up crying and she's a very strong woman, She is just so frustrated. Half the time she says he's just pretending to be sick so she will give him attention. (boy what does that remind ya of?) When I go to visit them though I can tell it's not a game. He decided to bake a cake while my mom was gone and didn't put any water or milk in it. Just eggs and oil. He said he used the mixer. well the beaters were no where around and I can guarentee ya he didn't wash them. so it turned out to be some kind of flat thing stuck to the bottom of a pan. My mom is afraid to leave him alone because he forgets to turn off the stove all the time. He has to be very hard to watch someone you've spent the past 60 years with discinagrate in front of your eyes. Don't be too hard on your dad I'm sure he is beside himself. Besides we all know the woman is usually the strong one that takes care of stuff. I don't know what my dad would have done if she had gotten sick first.
Ok so on to social security. Don't miss around. Sounds like it's lawyer time. I know what you mean about working. It makes no sence what they are saying. I get SSD but I really want to work. Some days I know Icould but there is no way that I could really commit to working. I would never be able to know until I wake up in the morning if I'm gonna feel good enough to go. I sincerely doubt I'll get a job where they let mew call off at a min. notice. and another thing about SS I dohn't get. Remeber we were talking about getting med. through them? well some genius there decides that yes I do get a check because I am disabled. However I have to be disabled for 24 months (on disability) before they will cover my medical expenses. How stupid is that? Just keep fighting them hun. You have a right to that money. ERRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGG!!
All I can say about your daughter and granddaughter is. Get a refigerator put in your bedroom! have your t.v. phone, computer, bathroom of course. LOL. My son and his girlfriend were living with me for 3 months. I have bedrooms at both ends of the house. both have attached bathrooms. We never saw each other. It was wonderful! LOL.
Well ok I think I covered everything. If I spelled it all wrong or it sounds strange it's 4:30 in the morning and I have no idea what I'm doing out of bed!
Hang in there love ya lady

I just wanted to post on your daughter and granddaughter coming to live with you. My daughter in law and 3 grandsons moved in with us last June. (My son was in Iraq). It was really a blessing in disguise. Yes, I got worn out by having them here but I really think I did better because I didn't want my grandsons to think I was always sick. So... I think I pushed myself a little harder than I normally would have and tried to not be sick that much. If I had a bad day or night I would just go into my room and stay away from everyone. I was battling some depression when they moved in and now it is totally gone. They actually just moved out 3 weeks ago. And though I enjoyed having them here I did the happy dance when they left. Now, it is just my husband and I and our new little Min Pin puppy, named Princess.
Try to enjoy your granddaughter while she is there with you. They grow up too fast.
