Feel like I do not have any hope/depression
#41
I tried applying for the (un) affordable care act - it would cost me $870.00 per month! How affordable is that? They have to count my husband's social security check in the numbers. Makes no sense to me either. The only way the (un) affordable care act is good is if your income is less than $17,000.00 a year - or if your rich and get your own private insurance! It is not affordable.

The application for SSDI was done this morning on line. I will gather all the other info they need and take it down to the local office.
I also emailed my laywer an FYI that I have applied.
Your all right. I need to look after me because no one else will.
I thank you all again for your help and words of encouragement. This is a life changing event and I need to be proactive for myself.

Thank you just doesn't seem like enough to say.

I have always felt my lawyer did/does a good job BUT when I mentioned disability to him he poopoo'd the idea and said (if I remember correctly) it was a pain in the ass and I wouldn't get as much in the settlement and the whole Medicare set aside was terrible. Told him I don't care about a settlement. I only want my injuries fixed so I can return to work and get back to my life. I have stressed to him many times about my worry about the future/bills/losing everything we have as well as not getting the medical treatment I need. After sitting and having a locked leg for almost 7 months, I have muscle atrophy in my calf. I can see the large indent where the muscle is shrinking and the knee remains swollen from effusion. Told him if I don't get the appropriate treatment soon, I will probably be in a W/C within a year due to the compensation I am having to offload onto my opposite knee/hip and back. Then I wouldn't be a candidate for a knee replacement- I would be a candidate for the rest of my life stuck in a chair.
At the hearing, he didn't even have the last MD note where he gave me a brace. ( which is a bandaid and useless because it's too small due to the edema from my mid calf to above my knee). Went to that appt about 5 weeks before the hearing. He didn't have the PT notes, I had to get those the day before the hearing. He is with the best rated law firm in the city supposedly but in the end, you both are so right. I need to take a stand for ME because it obvious that he is putting it off. He told me that I should wait and maybe apply next year for SSI as I would get a better monthly check as I would be that much closer to retirement.

When the hearing was over, he mentioned something about the appeal if the commissioner allows the depo ruling from the quack. He said" well, it costs 150.00 so we will have to set up for you to give me money for that".

Monday............I am going to make an appt and get that ball rolling. Time to take off the rose colored glasses that I have been wearing.
I thank you BOTH with all my heart for your help. You just made my world a whole lot brighter. Thank GOD for this board and your help. I appreciate it so much more than you could ever know!

I think your attorney has made some valid points, however like I wrote previously, your situation is that you need help now. I do agree with him on what you wrote above about the MSA etc. I think he was looking out for your best interests, but attorney's sometimes do not realize their clients entire situation.

I think it is great that bummer knees has that knowledge about applying for SSDI. I would take the help.

God bless all of you.

Affordable care act....ha!
Mine was going to be 600/month with a 25k deductible. Unfortunately I am in a state that did not adopt the extra benefits for the gap between medicaid and Obama care.
I also tried a health access place this morning and we are over that as well by 300/month.
But SSDI is filed and now I wait on that and hope I don't die before getting health insurance and my injuries addressed.
