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.

How many people are living with you? That's exhausting. Whenever I have my best friend visit for a weekend I am wiped out for at least a week. Hang in there!

I can only imagine what you are going through with having your family staying with you.. I know you, you will do anything for your family.. But you need to take a break away from the house.. Take your hubby and go..
Take care, Sam

Thinking about you as well. Was it a phone or physical interview?
Mine was phone and last all but 5 minutes.
Don't let the interview be the guide. Did you download the new ruling Nan posted?
It is what it is...........

Just maybe, he rushed through it quickly because he saw that you had everything they needed there! That's my hope for you!
Sam's idea is good...about taking your hubby and running off...

I can just imagine your chaos! Sometimes after company I feel like my brains have been scrambled.
Don't try to cater to everyone - and delegate those chores! Also, just tell them you are going to take a nap in the afternoons to recharge your batteries. I know probably easier said than done....
Good luck with the disability stuff. I know that is a stress and I dread the day I ever have to deal with all that.
Hang in there baby!

Don't stress about the interview. That is only one guy who honestly files papers for a living. He has no influence on your case!

As was already mentioned,... it may well be that you already have everything in order.
Don't dispair... I have faith that all will turn out fine for you on this.
Hang in there.

Sadie - thanks love!
Nan, my son, his wife and their two kids ages 19months and 4 years old are living here for a couple of months before they move to New Zealand. I'm really trying to enjoy it, but it's tough at times! I feel like an emotional wreck!
Sam - you know me too well!!! I am trying to 'let go' some and not stress but it's so hard for me.
Tru - it was a phone interview that lasted an hour and 10 minutes! I guess I'll get a copy of what he took down and I have 10 days to review it and say "Hey that's not right". I have a feeling with the way it went not much of it will be right. I had already sent in ALL OF MY RECORDS AND LETTERS FROM 4 OF MY PROVIDERS. They didn't seem to care..... I'm trying to keep positive about it, but I've worked with government agencies for many years in my profession and they never cease to disappoint me. LOL
Snowbird - I hope you are right!
Barefut - YES SCRAMBLED BRAIN IS WHAT I HAVE. I try to explain it to people and I just call it "over stimulated which makes me feel disoriented"
Lisa - Thanks, that's good to know! I was worried my case was in his hands!
Annie - thank you *hugs*
