Disability Update Report

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.

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
