Life feels like I will never be normal again

Feb 03, 2016 6:31 PM

I lost my disability hearing and the lawyer says they can't help me anymore on the disability. I can't afford meds can't take much more house is getting for closed on maybe. I am fighting for my grandkids because my daughter left over 2 years ago with a 2 year old and a now 9 year old they have a dead beat dad that has taken advantage of my mom and me too by using the boys to his advantage now in court for custody of them away form him and my daughter. Nothing going good.

Hey, jnuts! Sounds like you have got a whole lot of stress going on. I feel upset for you. I hope that you have spiritual support, if not I will pray for you and your grandchildren. I really understand how defeated you feel. Did you apply for social security disability? Or was it short/long term disability from your job? I am sure have contacted human services in your area for financial support,fios stamps, medicaid for you and your grandchildren, if not call them and any other agencies like United Way.my name is Terri Rodgers you can Facebook me anytime. Keep talking to us, we ar here to love and encourage each other. Love and Blessings, Terri

Jnutsch, I'm so sorry to hear about the disability hearing. Don't give up. Find another lawyer when you're up to it. I'm sure with the grandchildren & custody issues you may want time off from that just now. I know you are feeling pretty defeated and low right now. But try to hold on to the tiniest bit of hope & faith. Things have to change for the better at some point. You'll be in my thoughts & prayers, and your grandchildren too. Hugs! πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸ’•πŸŒΌ

What is "normal"? I am trying to find my new "normal" and what that looks like.

I need to apply for disability but it just seems people have a really hard time getting it. I work part time and it is all I can do to do that. So sorry your attorney was not helpful.

I will keep you in my prayers, don't give up, find another lawyer that is willing to take your case. Don't just stop there. God is going to bless you for stepping up and taking care of your grand babies, just hold on and and keep the faith. I know it's easier sad than doneπŸ˜™πŸ˜™β€β€β€
