I'm not really new to the board. I've been offline awhile. I guess I just wanted to vent a little. Since you guys can understand me. I applied for SSD in March of 2001 and I still have not won. It's so dang frustrating. Everyone says don't give up. Well there's no reason to quit fighting them. My lawyer can't get anymore money than he would get if I didn't keep on. But he isn't quiting me. Of course I'm dirt poor now anyway. lol Got to laugh to keep from crying. This pain just gets to me though. You would think you could have one day that you could feel good. No such luck. My throat has been getting sore every night for 3 weeks. Seems like I have to go to the doctor for antibiotics every week. I haven't been this time though. Keep thinking it will get better. Doctors just think your nuts anyway. Well I"ll shut up for now. Thanks for letting me vent.
