That is crazy! that just to show how they handle their work. The best part of all these is that you have been approved other way they won't sent you a check. I have been trying to get to through local social security office to get the name and telephone of the person who handling my claim and so far no luck as of yet.

 

 

Warm regards

Got approval letter today. After waiting so long and with such anticipation, just don't have the energy to open it. Will open it with breakfast coffee tomorrow.

Good for you Tru ~ congrats!!! Sit back and enjoy the feeling, it makes a world of difference.

It too me three years to get approved, I actually ended up getting a lawyer and then it happened in no time. That all seems like such a long time ago. I too wish we could have a "real" party ~ that would do me good right about now.

I've been meaning to tell you, your saying, "it is what it is" that's the best, my most fav and I try to remember that in all things.

thanks and congrats once more,

Much love,

Nina

17 years ago when I was first "diagnosed", I fell to pieces. My son Ryan was 14 at the time. I clearly remember him saying to me "why are you crying, so afraid?". He then said "it is what it is; just because they put a "name" to the illness doesn't make it any different, "it is what it is". I've lived by that every day thereafter and became less and less afraid to hear the bad things because....

Tru,

 

So that's where that little gem of wisdom came from :) From the mouths of babes right? Very sweet.

Tru,

 

I remember when I first got approved.....it was great! It took like 8 months and an appeal, becuz my doctor who filled out his section, thought it was a questionnaire for my insurance co. and wrote how great I was doing. We straightened that out real quick.

 

Celebrate and treat yourself like a queen!!!

 

Kids say the most honest things. They see right through everything! I love it!

You know Razz, it's funny how kids grow up to mimic the things you do without really knowing why. My "boys" are now 27 and 31. They automatically don't drink and drive, automatically use seat belts, the younger one still taps his toothbrush on the sink before putting it away, and they say "see you later" whenever anyone leaves the house, NEVER goodbye. All the things I did from youth. I remember Dane having "words" with his then girlfriend and I asked what the argument was about. He said she had the nerve to say goodbye to you when she was leaving :angry: !

 

I remember as a younger woman going through divorce, I went to a psychologist to get through it. We got on the subject of my father who had passed when I was 15 and was questioning if I had really ever loved him :huh: . The doctor pointed out that I did and still do many of the things my father did; the doctor then said that we emulate the ones we admire and respect. Nice feeling :) .

Tru,

 

You're so right, kids emulate what they see! It sounds like you've raised good sons and I'm sure you're proud of how they've turned out. Sometimes we can't see things for what they are and it takes someone else to point us in the right direction. One summer, I was on a tight budget and feeling broke. I mentioned to my young daughters that I didn't think we'd be taking a vacation that year. My oldest, 4 at the time, said "We do have money mom!" I said "We do?" The next thing I know she's dragging this glass wine gallon from the kitchen I had been putting pennies in (there wasn't more than $15.00 worth) and she says "See? We do have money!" She was right we did have money.

 

There is no other job like parenting!
