My minds a bit scrambled...I called a lawyer today and have an appt tomorrow. I've read that using a lawyer ups your chances first time so I will probably use them, not sure. If only 30% of first time filers get through and a good lawyer can increase the odds to say 45%. At 30%, and not being a gambling man, I'm going to need a lawyer anyway. I know there are success stories w/o a lawyer but I wouldn't be one of them.

I wasn't sure that I'd have all of the info to file myself or if I could get out of bed long enough to figure it out. I don't even know how to come up with a date that I was disabled and I read that that is pretty important. In other words, I need someone to think for me. : )

My doc will fill out the paperwork but I asked him last appt if my records would reflect that I'm disabled. He said that's up to them to determine. &^%$% No doc, what I'm asking is can I get some help here?

My therapist said he'd make me sound like a friggin lunatic who walks around 24/7 in a floridly psychotic state in government buildings. OK< I made that up but that's the gist of what he said.

Many people in the state agency I worked for were laid off 1/11. My brother died a few months before that. I've always bounced back in a life that's had it's share of setbacks, not this time.

I have an old friend that always tries to paint a better picture when all I see is black. A few weeks ago we were doing that drill and I stopped him and said, No, I can't do it!! I can't move!!
I can't move!!! Finally he stopped and said, With what you've been through the last three and a half years, I not sure if I would have made it.

I haven't even done a resume and it seems impossible. I've never had these issues to this extreme.

The layoff didn't fit into my 58yo overweight(ty Seroquel)plan. I was supposed to retire in 7 years. Now that I am 58, overweight, feel like sh*t, and have the self-esteem of a roach, I'd say I have a problem.

Got carried away....
