I have been trying to get my Short Term Disability approved for more than a month now. I am at my wits end. Today I received a call from a disability nurse at my job. I actually feel like I was interrogated by her. She asked me if I had attended church since being out of work. If I had gone on any trips? Who does my house work? She wanted to know if I was diagnosed in 1999 why was I just having problems now? During the whole conversation I felt like I had to defend myself because she had already made up her mind that I wasn't sick enough. I was insulted and confused by her questions. If I am unable to work does that mean I have to be house bound and bedridden? Am I supposed to give up all aspects of a normal life? Although I can't do everything all the time, whenever I can do something it's a good day to me. I can't believe all they are putting me through. They take deductions from my paycheck for Short Term Disability and Long Term. I can't believe it's this difficult. I almost feel harassed by them.
