Title: Social Security Disability Benefits
Post by: admin on November 01, 2007, 09:19:11 AM
Well... I got a letter yesterday from the Social Security office telling me that I had met the medical rules to qualify for benefits and that they needed to determine whether I had met the NON medical rules (whatever the heck that is!)   :-\

Honestly, I feel torn about this letter.  On one hand, because I no longer have my part time job at National Auto Sound, we will definately need the income.  On the other hand... the fact that they have determined I QUALIFIED makes me feel a sense of gloom and doom.  I keep trying to tell myself that I would have qualified on my back problems (bulging discs, arthritis) alone - and the cancer was just a secondary condition... but I still feel like... I don't know... like I am going to die soon, they know that, so they are giving me the benefits.   :-[

Sounds stupid, I know!

Welll....  must have qualified for the "non medical" reasons too... because I received a disability check yesterday!  This is really going to help after losing my job at National Auto Sound!
