talk about bittersweet [Jan. 22nd, 2010|10:01 am]

My disability application has been approved ~!

I was happy to receive the letter yesterday that said my disability application has been approved. I spoke with my friend at Human Resources & she said that 18 people where I worked have taken a buy out. Please send out some good thoughts & prayers to my coworkers who will be dealing with stress due to staff reduction.

I couldn't find my birth certificate ( a copy is required to proceed with the disability process ) & I was a bit surprised to find that it takes at least 4 weeks to get a copy from the State - but you can expedite your request with a private sector online provider
I had been needing a haircut - my Mom used to joke "When you are going to the hair salon, you are praying for hope"... haha
Before & After It's hard to see a difference, but my hair is more layered than it was before.

I can see a difference-- and it's SUPER CUTE!!

Thank the Lord.

I had to order a copy of my birth certificate for my job (or so I thought) but I was surprised to learn that it comes in "short form," with no time of birth or detailed specifics. Also haha, my name is missing it's dictogram, I guess they didn't have that key on the computer.

That's such good news! =) I'm happy for you!
Also your new haircut is pretty! I like the layers on you, i think it makes you look fresher! Perhaps its because it's a lighter feeling? =)

That's good news to hear! I'm just sad that you have been so sick for so long ;o;

I think your haircut looks really nice! It's just a little shorter but it made a big difference! That's what I need for my hair too.
I've been saying I need a haircut for over a year, but I'm too scared!

It took less time than I thought - I sent in my application on 11/12/09
The next step is Social Security Disability - people tell me that's a lot more difficult
