The girl had an appointment at the doctor’s office today, then we had to go to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to have an EKG and lab work done–just part of the normal monitoring for some of her meds. And that’s all we did today, other than trying to pick up my meds (which weren’t ready) and popping by the mailbox.
So why did I collapse by the time we got home, and why do I still have a damned fever?
It’s ridiculously frustrating to be exhausted from fairly non-tasking errands like that. This kind of thing is why, no, I can’t work, at all, outside the home. It’s why I couldn’t manage “normal” college classes.
My SS claim is still in process. They told me last year that I should have a hearing scheduled around March 2008. When I called back in March, I was told to expect to hear something in 90 days or so. Now they’re saying maybe next year sometime! So I wasn’t surprised to read that, averaging 30 months from the time of the second denial before an administrative law judge hearing is scheduled, according to the SSA representative with whom I spoke today. And they’re denying more and more people at the initial filing and first appeal, too, just to try to get rid of us.
If I thought Canada would let me emigrate, I’d be there.
