In the midst of frustration, pain, and very little hope. Where did my dreams go?
Experiencing emotional issues, along with long-lived health condition, I found myself lost. What do I do?
Thanks to a dear friend, experiencing similar conditions, he made love filled suggestion: "Go ahead and apply for disability. I did it. I got it."
The concept had not crossed my mind. All I knew was that I was experiencing severe issues which did not allow me to have a fulfilling normal life anymore. I thought about it. Came to a conclusion - why not?
He told me about Citizens Disability. "Contact them," he said.
I found myself reading through the website and filling out some initial forms. I knew this would not be a one-shot experience.
Sure enough, rejection came along. I also knew that patience rewards those who wait.
I contacted Citizens Disability once again. This time I requested to talk to the main office. I wanted to go to the problem solver herself. I did not want just to fill out a "reconsideration form." I needed to throw this ball to someone that would catch it and run with it.
Fortunately, I was able to contact a good player. A player that listened and took suggestions as well as make them.
We scored! We won. A year into the game I was awarded SS Disability.
I plan on taking some college courses so I can stay active and possibly commence a new less stressful part-time career. Today I visited a local School of Art. A new beginning.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
