Sweet/Nan:

Just got a check from "SDC" for a great deal of money, but no explanation. Does that mean I got the permanent disability?

I'll bring the hummus and vegetables. Maybe some shrimp and sauces for dipping. Anyone else joining our party?

Oh Tru, YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Yes!!!! Good for you!!! I'm so happy for you, isn't it a relief???? That is how it was for me too. I ended up with a HUGE AND I MEAN HUGE deposit from them as it was retroactive for a year and a half. I do my banking online, so I saw this outrageous balance and thought it was a mistake, so I called the bank and they said "A very large depost was made by the Social Security Department". I didn't get a letter from SS for almost 3 weeks saying I was actually awarded. So you got it!!



Party, party party!

Remembering how your appointment went, I'm so glad that things worked out in your favor. I'll bring some Florida cuisine to the festivities!
I may have Scleroderma, but Scleroderma doesn't have me!

I truly wish the "party" was real and I could physically meet each and every one of you. All of you have been a life line to me and I can't express just how much you have all mean to me.

I'm so happy for you, I remembered how upset you were about the SSDI doctor visit. Now you deserve to enjoy some of that money. I think people whith this terrible disease should not have to go trough so much struggle trying to approve to SSDI their disbilities. But that if we were living in perfect world.


Best wishes
