Holy cow.. a lot has been going on.. Jody, how is your mom? Please update us when you can.. Bear, so good to see you back on here.. we have been so worried.. momto3.. thanks for thinking of me.. you too yally.. you guys are the best!
Things are the same here.. I have a doctors appt on Thurs to find out what they want to do with my cyst.. I have a job interview tomorrow though.. I am worried that this will be the job that wants to hire me, and now I have more medical issues.. I can't afford to not take the job, however, I need to have these surgeries, as my pain is getting worse.. guess I need to take it one day at a time and see how it all plays out.. no need in stressing myself out, if I don't get the job.. so we'll see what happens after tomorrow and Thursday..
As far as disability, yes, I can get a VA Compensation based on how 'disabled' I am.. That paperwork has started, but it takes a couple of months (or 6) to process and for them to tell me what percentage I am disabled.. I will be at least 40%, so that's good.. we'll see.. as far as SSDI, I don't know how I would go about
and do that.. but that in itself is a LONG drawn out process, as our Erin knows only too well..
Bear, I do live in Base Housing, but my husband is still in the military.. if he wasn't, or if I was a single parent, I'd be out on the streets.. just doesn't seem fair sometimes, does it? Hhmm.... July 1st, should be my 1st retired paycheck.. I am praying that all that goes smoothly..
Well, this must be the week of bad news.. on Sunday, I found out that my father-in-law's cousin, was killed in a car accident.. that shook us up pretty good, then yesterday I get a phone call from my mom and dad, my Aunt passed away.. apparently she fell and hit her head last week, had a stroke, and had lots of internal bleeding.. well, if that wasn't bad enough, she took a turn for the worst on Sunday when her kidney's started shutting down.. I didn't know any of this til yesterday.. so my dad is on his way, from Arizona to Missouri for the funeral.. and here I sit.. I wish I could be there, but with everything going on here, it's just not feasible..
