The thing that has been causing me a lot of anxiety has come, my SSDI Update Report. It’s been three years since I won my disability case although I did not receive my benefits until March of the next year.
I truly feel that I still cannot work. I experience depression every day and am still having sleeping difficulties due to hypersomnia. I am convinced that working will be hard on me mentally and also believe that some of my physical problems have improved since being on disability.
I’ve been given a form asking me if I’ve been working, whether I have discussed with my doctors if I can return to work and if my health is the same, better or worse going back two years. They also want to know my hospitalizations and doctors’ visits. Then I just have to sign, date and give them my phone number.
I know that I cannot return to the career that I had prior to leaving work. It’s just too stressful and I worry that any job I get would actually have me making less money than what I am currently receiving.
So please send your prayers, good thoughts and vibes this way and I will keep you posted of the process. Also I would love to hear from anyone who has gone through a disability review.
