Hello everyone, how’re y’all doing? I’m having a pretty rough times with my disability. I’ve been fighting for almost a year and got denied for the second time today. My lawyer is is the process of setting up my court date but I’ve been told it probably won’t be until 2019.
I’m unable to work due to my pain and chronic illness. I see my new rheumatologist next week to see what the possible diagnosis could be of what’s going on.
I am going to school part time and I receive pension money from VA since my father was 100% disabled. This pension is only while I’m in school and isn’t much.
Well things went down hill yesterday when VA told me they overpaid me and might hold me next couple of checks. Then I found out that my disability was denied again. THEN I got served papers. I’m being sued by an old credit card because I wasn’t able to pay it all. I’ve been in contact with them to set up a payment plan but they didn’t want to accept under $700 a month for 3 months. So now I’m in a lawsuit.
I had a complete nervous breakdown last night over all of it. I don’t know what to do financially. I’m in talks with the companies’ lawyer to see what my payment options are. And I’m hoping the VA accepts my waiver for the overpayment.
Has anyone else had critical financial problems due to their disability denial or medical problems? I just want to know I’m not alone.
