Hi Retired Mom,
I'm sorry you have to go thru the song and dance to get your disability...just reading in these forms about the hassles people have with makes me angry. I couldn't imagine what I'd be like if it were happening to me in person.
I know you must be feeling a lot of different emotions right now. I am sending good thoughts your way, and will keep you in my prayers. Hang in there and come vent anytime...you know we're all cheering you on!
Conditions: Fibromyalgia, Severe Myofascial Pain, Chronic Pelvic Pain (with permanent muscle damage), Femoroacetabular Impingement (CAM and Pincer), Reynauds, IBS, Surgical Adhesions, Ophthalmic Migraines, Severe Hot Flashes (both Surgical Menopause and medication related), plus physically unable to vomit due to the Nissen, and I have extremely tiny veins with a lot of scar tissue...a joy when it comes to having to give blood or get an IV started
Surgeries: Appendix, Uterus, Nissen Fundoplication for GERD, Left Ovary, Gallbladder, Right Ovary, TVT
Medications: Oxycontin, Cesamet, Tramacet, Cymbalta, Flexeril and Clonidine plus Laxaday, Vitamin D and a Multi-Vitamin daily
