Well, its all over but the celebrating. I will be getting my back pay fairly soon, without, I might add, proof of mental competence. Seems the last person I talked to at the Social Security office “got to thinking”. She went back and re-read the deposition 3 times and couldn’t find any thing that said I needed a personal representative to handle my finances. Woo Hoo! She ended the conversation by saying she was sending out the form to release my back pay that day. Don’t really know when I’ll be getting it, but I KNOW how much I will be getting. I have my budget all worked out. Woo Hoo!
Had a Doctor’s appointment today. It went pretty good, all things considered. Blood pressure is almost normal, blood sugar is back down below 200 and I’ve lost another 4 pounds. Had discussions about the oxygen. Seems I’ll just have to learn to live with it. My lungs seem to have been damaged a bit more than the Doctors thought from the anesthesia. Oh well. I can handle it. Don’t much like it, but I can handle it.
Today, even my OA (osteo arthritis) doesn’t bother me very much. Neither does my sciatica. All in all a good day.
Oh, I also got a “raise” at work. (My hours were increased.)
