    I got my letter today and I cried. I am so excited. Now I guess I have more waiting for a check.

    I want to thank everyone on here for the wealth of information I have read and ideas I've used. This board is great!!!

    How long did you have to wait? Did you have help?

    I applied in Mar of this year. I had my ALJ hearing in Aug. And last week, I sent the Judge a dire need letter and got the approval today. I did it all by myself. I did not have an attorney. The ALJ ask me if I knew that I could have an attorney and I said yes. He ask me why I didn't get one and did I want to postpone the hearing so I could get one and I told him, No. I know me better than anyone else.

    Thanks fivesue, that is really sweet of you to check on me. I'm so glad I had good news for ya!! hee hee

    If I can help anyone else, let me know. Tho', I don't know how much help I'd be.

    for the congrats. I am very relieved. But will be more relieved when I get the money. Bills stress me out more than anything else. I can't wait to catch up.

    I am very happy for the approval but sad at the fact that I am considered disabled. I never thought I would say that at a mere 52 years old that I am disabled.

    My whole letter was 3 pages of official stuff telling me about appeals and such and then the next 3 pages listed all the stuff about me and my limitations. It made me sorta sad that I am apparently in worse shape than I thought. It referred alot to all the tests I've had done.

    Anyhoo, I'll get over being sad very quick and start working on getting me fixed.

    I celebrated tonight but not about the approval. I made supper for my son for his birthday and made a jello cake that he loves so much.

    It was a good evening but even better now that all are gone and the house is quiet.

    Thanks again guys.
