    Hey All,

    I got a phone call from Wash DC today giving me a verbal approval for my disability from the Post Office! They're going to give me back pay 'til the last day I worked, which was in July. What a HUGE burden taken off our backs! I am soooooo thankful. Just wanted to share my happy news!!

    How wonderful for you. Now I'd like to hear that my disability retirement has been approved. It will save me money on my health insurance, among other things!

    congrats to you !!
    I'm in the process of a second denial but have a lawyer working on the case also. yesterday I sent a large envelope full of past diaries to them, and hope and pray to God they pass the case. I've been biting nails and chewing fingers.

    Maybe now these stupid panic attacks will go away. And I can relax. I'm sure I will. :) This was not for SSDI. This was disability retirement from the post office. I'm still waiting to hear from SSDI, which should be soon. It really doesn't matter money wise if I get the SSDI or not, because they prorate, so the payment would be about the same with both. The only benefit of SSDI would be getting Medicare in two years, which would pick up what my medical ins. doesn't pay. I hope and pray for everyone waiting, or applying in the future that they get their approvals ASAP!

    Hugs,

    Regina
