I was trying to prepare for denial, but in the back of my mind I really thought I would get it, because of my status of disabilty with state and my conversations w/ the adjudicator handling my claim. They've said that although I won't be able to return to my previous work (realtor) I would be able to do a lesser job, with no customer contact and since I am being treated for bipolar and fm and IBS that I wasn't disabbled. For one, there were more claims than that that the liason handling my case did not include. second...a treatment is not a cure and certainly does not eliminate symptoms. And since you have to swear to be truthful on applications, I will have to disclose that I will probably have to call in sick 3-4 times a week, I'll need a lot of time off for dr's and therapy sessions and that not to mind me when I scream out in pain, that it may look like I'm having a heart attack but I'm not. And when I totally forget what you've just told me and will have to tell me several times to do what it is you want me to do, oh, and to get me a soft cusshy recliner because I can't stand, sit or walk for very long..who do you think might hire me? Maybe I should apply at the social security office and see if they hire me. I've completely lost faith in God. I've been praying for help from all the saints and my Dad so that I won't have to sponge off my mom any longer. Every dime she gives me is another dime she doesn't have to live on. I'm literaly taking a day away from her life for every day I live.
