    I have finally finished the third, and hopefully final, set of paperwork for SSDI. I was beginning to think this might never happen. I've had them for almost two months, but in the meantime I've had several family crises with which to deal. Tomorrow I meet with my attorney, so I will show them to him before I send them in. Then I'll celebrate!

    This morning I began the day with a way too early appointment with a Forensic Psychiatrist for an "Independent Medical Evaluation" for my disability retirement request.

    He also gave me a form to complete. He called it a test, but it's really just a personality form. The most interesting part is that he gave me an answer form with soemone else's name on it. He scratched through that and substituted my name. How's that for professionalism? Stinks in my book!

    I won't know what to do without all that paperwork hanging over my head! I may actually make progress on some of the long overdue things I need to do around the house.

    I had a chance to sit down and begin working on the little "test" I got from the Forensic Psychiatrist I saw this morning. There are ONLY 557 questions to answers! Obviously I did not finish it in one sitting. It will probably take several!
