Thanks for keeping me in mind. I do feel more relaxed today -- attorney called this morning and gave me a list of "homework" --- paperwork & information I need to request from doctors, the disability insurance company, my SSD attorney, and the like.
I keep forgetting to ask how long this might take, how much $$ the attorney will need, and whether the insurance company will be forced to do back pay or not.
While my family (father & brother) is of no help whatsoever, neither emotionally or financially, I am very fortunate to have 3 friends who are ready with groceries, money, housing, or whatever it takes. One of them is even in the midst of a divorce with a woman that is seeking way more $$$ than is reasonable, but is still trying to insist I take money. I guess I should have known he's committed himself to be a not-blood-related-brother years ago when he named his daughter after me.
I'm grateful that this doesn't seem to be putting me into a flare, and that I have such willing friends. Some of us never get better, and many people never have friends like these. I also am especially grateful to you, my HW friends -- you understand my fears and concerns in a way that the others never quite will.
You may think your postings of support are just words and that they won't help -- but they give me a warm spot in my heart and a special hope that tells me everything will work out -- we just don't know quite what that will look like yet.
Thanks to you all,
