As I wrote yesterday, I received my Social Security Disability denial in the mail. Bummer. I wasn’t really surprised, just disappointed. We will be contacting an attorney that we found on http://www.fmaware.org. I am dreading the continuation of this whole process. Much of my anxiety is tied to feeling judged so the possibility of months of close scrutiny has me feeling, well, anxious.
I am also torn because I am only 34 years old. Who wants to be disabled at my age? No one. I feel like I’m giving up by pursuing this disability claim. I guess deep down, I am still wishing I could be the old me. The letter from Social Security stated that my condition is stabilized on medications and while my conditions result in some limitations, I should not be prevented from performing work I’ve done in the past as a teller. Tellers stand at a station all day. Even when they sit, the amount of repetitive movement required would have me resting more than working.
I’m really trying to think positively. I have more to say but the tablet is spazzing out and I am about to chuck it.
