What a mess! and I'm so sorry you're having to put up with this government crap. You might just want to go ahead and get an attorney lined up. I think it would take a huge amount of stress off of you and thus reduce the pain a bit. Any reduction in pain sure is welcome, even if it's from a 9 to an 8....silly as that sounds.
Please keep us posted and you don't have to thank anyone for listening to your rants. We all come here in pain and need to talk, it's human nature. So share, rant, vent, express, yell, rage, fume, seethe, shout, scream, shriek, roar, bellow, bawl, screech, howl, shout, cry, yelp and holler! <whew> ok, I had some help on that list...lol But any is allowed in here as long as we don't use those 'bleep' words. ;-)
If you're going through hell, keep going.
