hmmm- wonder if Vamps is pandering to their largely female fanbase? XD
After my first surgery in 2006, my surgeon told me that I would be off of work for about 5 weeks. 21 hospital stays later, I am still on disability. I had set a goal that remains surprisingly elusive - I wanted to be pain free for a 2 week period before I felt I was ready... I mailed my disability retirement application last week. Please cross your fingers that my application gets approved - several people in the know have reassured me that I should be more than qualified.
As I was filling out the application, I had to use the extra page allotted to list all of my hospital stays. The hospital really has been a home away from home - just consider these 2 stays:
Initial hospital stay after trip to ER in 2006:
July 24 - Sept 13
First hospital stay at Beaumont where all the corrective
Jan 5 - March 20
Holy moly- that's a lot of time in the hospital~! Is there any money in being a professional patient? haha
just chillin with Sally - such a great doggie pal - she prefers to stay home with me~!
OMG I want that screensaver.
I am crossing my fingers for you!

I share your disappointment!
Re: "pandering to"
Lol ya think? But who could blame them? They can sop all they want xD!!!!!
I like this pic you posted. You are looking healthy and your hair looks good too! XD <3
... So after ALLLL that time spent in the house of doctors, were any of your hosts able to definitively say what all your troubles have boiled up from? Did I miss that? Because it's still a mystery to me...
Ps. Did you get your tourbook? Or did you order it? Or did I already ask you that?
Dr Leigh & my corrective surgeon found the underlying problem. When I first went to the ER I had a bleeding ulcer & a dangerously low hemoglobin of 6.2
(normal is about 12 & when it goes to 6 they start giving you blood transfusions). My Doctor thought the ulcer that wasn't healing was a cause for the problem... well after the ulcer surgery + many more, I still was having a hemoglobin count of 6.. My surgeon sent me to a hematologist & she started me on IV iron & injections. My hemoglobin count is now in a normal range.
I didn't order the tourbook. I have boxes of DVD's & photobooks of our loverly Hyde + friends already, so I try and avoid temptation.
You are so awesome. Thank you for these. I always mean to thank you but then I go and fail. lol
oh i see myself ^^ (well, my hands XD)
thanks to you and your spam supplier....here in hawai'i, WE LOVE SPAM! ^_^
oh, and I'll be happy to play the Stripper music (on piano of course) if I get a ring side seat.... ^_-
I hope you feel better.
stripper spam..teehee. very accomplished laddies, i'd say. thanks to both of you. XD
applying for disability is a hard step to have to take, from a purely emotional point of view. i hated it, but i had to apply on two occasions before it went through. by that time had gone through everything i had and my youngest was barely out of high school. incredible the toll illness can take, on the individual and loved ones. you know i wish you all the best and hope you have no problems with red tape or bureaucratic bozos. ^ ^
Thanks for your understanding -
I would probably have tried to return to work if the economy was better - but since there will be massive lay-offs where I work
, I can feel a bit better about helping one more person remain employed. If I was to return now, I would bump someone with lower seniority & they would lose their job - Edited at 2009-11-17 02:07 pm (UTC)
I hope your application gets approved! *hugs*
I am keeping my fingers crossed for you! This surely had been a hard step to take, but no matter what kind of thoughts hang on it you shouldn't regret it in any way. This doesn't make you less human or less lovely nor less strong. Sometimes we have to accept help in any way. That's the most normal to do. The secret is to accept and love yourself.
I hope your application gets approved! and yay for having some nice company xD
