Awesome, It's almost criminal that the disability system denies people the way they do...I certainly didn't even want to apply, I had a VERY good job, but it had become extremely unsafe for me to drive. So, what are you going to do. I still try to stay positive!

Thanks for the reply, Robyn. I'm glad you got a bit of a break, although I'm not sure why you would need a break from US wonderful tuD folks!?
I know you are a fighter and that's one of the many reasons I like you, but still I wish I could wave a wand and make your financial woes go away. I'd say I'll share my lottery winnings with you, except for that little detail about my not having spare cash to spend on the tickets! But if some miracle does drop a load of cash on my head, I'll certainly be in touch with you and several others - at least once I recover from the concussion of having all that money land on my head!
Well, it's really busy in this tax office now and being "functionally blind" as I was told yesterday, makes it sorta hard to read all the tiny numbers on my tax program and those programs just assume you wouldn't be doing tax stuff if you couldn't see so they don't let you augment the fonts one bit. I have the monitor on my desk in front of my face, but that means the keyboard is underneath it and hard to access. I got some contacts yesterday which help with distance but I can't read anything up close with them on so if I can't find some magnifying specs for that today, I'll have to leave the contacts for after tax too.
Anyway, nuff kvetching, I'll try to follow your lead and Fight my way through this next morass of medical mismanagement. See you in May!

Robyn,it was so good to hear from you. Sorry about all your ups and downs. I hope you win the court case. You should be on disability. I got the flu shot but I got a cold and cough that lasted weeks. Just had comjunctivitis in my left ete still using antibiotic drops. Crazy weather. Days in the 80's and then nights inthe 20's. Spring bushes all confused they are in full bloom now. I will be with you in spirit on the 28th. Praying all goes well. Take good care. HUGS, Reed
