    Good morning everyone! It's 6:45 AM here in Western NY. In 2 hours and 15 minutes my husband will be going before a judge to determine if his Social Security Disability - due to Cushing's Syndrome - will be approved. We started this process 3 years ago and it has really sucked the life out of us.

    Our attorney said I can go as far as the courtroom doors with my husband - but then I have to wait in the hall. Kinda makes me angry as I have been by his side since day one. There were times I had to answer questions and fill out forms because he just didn't have the cognitive strength to do it.

    I think this whole thing has a small part in why I am now on short-term disability from my job - due to a severe fibro flare and lower back pain. I think the stress finally just got a hold of my body and hasn't let go. It's been great fun around here the last 6 weeks with my husband making no money and me getting New York State disability. They're not very generous!! :)

    OK......enough of that. Have good day everyone.

    I will keep you both in my prayers today. It sounds like you need a break from all the stress. I hope all goes well for your husband. It really is too bad that you cannot go in with him. I know I'd want to be there with my husband and I'd certainly need him there with me.

    Take care of yourself today too. Fibro is so painful, even on a "good" day (whatever a good fibro day is!). :) GB66

    Sounds like you have a good attorney, no need to feel a bit angry waiting in the hall.
    You may need to testify so waiting in the hall is a good thing.

    Hope all goes well today for you and your Husband.
    Prayers and good thoughts are with you.

    I hope all goes well for you guys. This is no fun, I know. I hope, too, your Fibro lets up and you can get some rest. Stress can do alot to our bodies. I'll be thinking of you.
