I had my disability interview this morning. It was a bit frustrating as I felt the guy was glossing over everything, and was in a hurry. So I hope the person to actually does the medical review knows what they are doing and actually LOOKS and READS all of the letters my doctors wrote. I'll keep you posted.

Sorry I am not participating much right now, but frankly I'm having a hard time even getting through each day.

It's harder than I thought it was going to be having everyone living here. I'm not resting enough and there is so much chaos.

Congrats on at least getting your initial interview over with, Sweet.

I can't imagine how you're dealing with a whole household. I'd probably run away from home (book myself into a hotel room, just so I could sleep!). Do you have a calendar out, marking the days down?

Shelley it has been a challenge and of course it's so bitter sweet. I want my house back to myself, but I don't want my family to move to NZ!!! I can't win.

I have 4 friends that have offered their house as a resting place and I think this week I will start taking them up on it. Even if I retreat to my master suite, the grand babies, want grandma and keep knocking asking for me etc. I think I need to be removed from the house to get rest. :)

Hey Sweet. I just rejoined on this forum last night and thought I would comment here for you as well. Take your time and enjoy your family while they are still here. You will have plenty of time to catch up with us. As for your disability interview, I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

Much love,
Kim
