I don't remeber when I have been so upset and in pain as I have been this past week. I have had more leg aches, joint pain and all over body aches. I felt like I was starting to flare and it didn't have any thing to do with the weather. I have slept less in this past week than before. That is what worring aobut money does to me. I am on SSDI and now have been on it for 2 yrs , as of OCtober 1, I will be elegiable for medicare benifits. But here was the stressful confusing part. I received a letter saying that I would recieve my Spetember's check on the 3rd Wed. of October. My medicare payment of $96.40 would be taken out from that check. I was so upset that I called SS and asked them what was going on..as I knew that I was going to lose a month's worth of my disability. OR at least that was what it sounded to me. I found out that when I get a check on the 3rd wed of each month it is from the month before. I really thought that I would not get a check in September, how was I going ot pay for my scripts if I didn't get a check till September 17th? I was panicing over this and was so confused about it. I After I spoke to the lady at SSDI I finally understood what was going on.This is how it works I have to write it down for me to understand it. Each check I recieve is from the month before. Such as I will get Augusts check in September, Spetember's check in October and so on. This system is confusing to me. I was under the impression that the money I recieved each month was for that month not the month before. It is sv 't change. I really need to repeat the serenity prayer and live by it. ACcepting the things I can change, letting go of what I change and the wisdom to knoww the difference. I really had my self all worked up over a problem that was not going to happen. I get it now. No more stressing and worring over nothing. ~HUGS~ Rosemarie Maybe I will be able to sleep tonight and not have leg aches. learned that I need to know and accept . It is all worked out now I will get a check in Sptember. It is going to work out lke it should. So I can stop stressing over it.
