Hi all, Just when I felt I was getting this DD under control the rug was pulled from under me. The stress of having my LTD denied a second time has thrown me into a downward spiral. I was fighting so hard to keep the depression at bay by forcing myself to exercise on days I couldn't even get off the couch. Now I find out that the exercise was one of the reasons for my denial. I can't even walk today and I just don't know what to do anymore. Although I am appealing the denial it takes so much out of me to keep on top of these Doctors for letters. I'm so upset today, it never seems to end. It is so hard for me just to get through a day, I cannot handle any type of stress and with having a child this is next to impossible. Although my husband is good, his attitude goes from great to nothing since he's so exhausted from keeping up with the things I can't so this adds more stress. The financial implications just add more. What the hell is wrong with these damn doctors? They know what I have and they just torture me to get letters from them , the last time I had to wait almost 2 months to get a letter from my rheumie's office, the person lied to me about 6 times telling me she would do it "today" . Sorry I just had to vent...I feel so alone.
