    Its been 8 months....they have tried to even build a pre-existing case on me from 2 years back.....today I got the news....
    They are FINALLY going to start my Long Term Disability Claim.
    Wow, I am beside myself......

    I am having a horrible health day...but this news has just made me feel 100 lbs lighter...and just before Xmas too. I cannot believe that they have approved it, and on the first go as well. I have been prepping myself for a long battle thru appleals. I am thrilled.

    I hope that this enspires others to keep thinking positive thru the waiting process as well.....for me, its worked in the end (and I do know others are not as lucky) !

    I live in Canada so its BC Life that I have insurance under.....(from work). Its for 24 months so we'll see if I need to use it all or not.....
    They still want me to complete an hour long phone interview (they say its standard) but I am nervous.....with everything they have tried so far to not allow my claim.....I am still not out of the woods yet. Just makes me angry the way they are trying so hard to find a loop....for something just so stupid. Ahhh....

    Celebrate-yes. I am sure this will help you recover and feel like you can live again. My insurance company is asking for objective medical evidence, even though I was in hospital for 3 weeks and home care for 6 weeks- of course I had a bacterail infection wich cleared but I now have all the classic CFIDS symptoms and my Internist stands behind me. What used to be a no brainer for me has now become a challenge and I feel worthless most of the time.

    Then comes along an insurance company that tries to make you out to be a liar. Can't tell you how demoralising that is, and now I think this whole thing has statred affecting my personal life. I was perceived as this "carrer woman" and suddenly for the last 2 years I have been palgued with cancer,SBE (endocarditis) and CFIDS. Gosh what a life.
