Nanners- so sorry to hear that! My suggestion is to also see an attorney about
wrongful termination AND discrimination! You should sue their sorry butts for firing you because you have been sick! 22 years and that is how they treat you??!! It makes me sick!
As you know, I have recently filed for disability because of my legs and not being able to walk right now due to the surgery and AVN in both knees. I am using an advocate and they told me SS is now fighting nearly everyone who applies. I haven't received a determination yet but even though I am on crutches and cant walk due to the other leg needing the same surgery and the inability to ever work as a Paramedic again, I was told to expect a denial and a fight because the system is going broke so they are refusing even the most serious cases. Apparently they are making it nearly impossible because the system has so much abuse. Gather your strength! Dont give up! When I hear something, I will keep you posted.
Best of luck!
