The cloud is showing it’s underbelly

That be the “silver lining”.  Just trying to be clever….

Sooooooo, my Sis actually brought me a b-day cake, some flowers and $20.  ACK!!!!  Much appreciated, but I no can have the cake…not good for reason I was in hospital…..oh well, thought that counts.

AND THEN AND THEN……. I got a call from the local Social Security office…..they have approved me for  “presumptive disability”…. not full disability yet, but it means I can get SSI….WHOOT!  A lady in a Facebook group for MSer’s said:

Presumptive means having a reasonable basis for belief or acceptance; so it sounds to me that the State believes you have a good/strong case.”


Now then,  my BFF R.R. went and bought himself a BMW sports car, convertible….SIGH. Don’t know what I’m going to do with that boy.  But since it’s an automatic and I can drive it when I go back to DC…. well now.  I called RR right after I got the call from SS.  He was glad and wanted to know if I was coming back to DC next week…..OH I WISH~~~THE TEMPTATION IN GREAT~~~  His Birthday is Monday and Friday is his promotion ceremony to Lieutenant Colonel.   I so want to go, maybe just for 2 weeks….I know I need to stay put in Bama till this disability determination is taken care of.

Ok so……. now I can go back on the lexapro, I can afford the co-pay OR MEDICAID CAN PAY FOR IT!!!

Better living through chemistry…


So Seriously…

The SSD process has begun again. SIGH~~~
I am in a somewhat better frame of mind that I was last time I was here. I can type without crying…..but the previous request for financial assistance still stands.
I will be starting back on the Copaxone for MS. UGH I HATE THOSE DAMN SHOTS.

I am soooooooooooo wanting to get back to D.C. RR kept me up till too late for me Sunday night txting me stuff, LOL. It was amusing.

I’m so frickin BORED and starved for conversation. Tomorrow is Wed, that means the little knitting/crocheting group will be meeting at Barnes & Nobles around 6:30. I so look forward to it.
I did some pitty party venting on facebook the other day, it has resulted in a call from one of the SCA folks offering to come and get me on Sat for a few hours. They are having a pewter pouring class, it sounds fun and will be extremely good to get out and be around others. I am a social person and this is killing me.

I honestly think the MS has gotten worse since I’ve been back.
