I wont know for another two to three months.
I can not help but laugh. After over two years, I finally had my court date. It went really well. There is really no way they can not rule in my favor. There was a vocational specialist in the room. By the end of the session, they had determined that there was not a single job in the national economy I could perform at this time.
And then they tell me I will have to wait another two or three months to get my decision. Hahahahahahaha.
I mean seriously, the thought of having to wait that much longer for medicaid makes me want give up. I don’t think it will happen sooner than 4 months. Hahaha. Its insane.

I spoke with my lawyer today.
My court date for my disability case is coming up in three weeks. I have been waiting for two and a half years, so needless to say, I am super excited. There really isn’t any reason I can be denied this time. Reasons why I was denied before were my age and education level. Like either one has anything to do with my ability to function.
All I really care about is finally being accepted for Medicaid. I can hardly even imagine how it will feel to be able to go to the doctor when I need to. To be able to afford regular medications. My god, its so far beyond comprehension at the moment.
Anyways, I was speaking with an aunt of mine who has been through the whole process. She was asking me about the court appointed medical visits I was supposed to have gone to. Then I began to remember that my lawyer had told me that they would probably send me to their own doctors, and psychiatrist, etc. Then I realized that this never happened. I never received anything requesting that I go. I start to panic. What if I actually get turned down again. What in the hell am I going to do then.
My lawyer reassured me that it was a good sign. They obviously felt that there was sufficient evidence. We shall see. I’m still beginning to feel the nervousness. I honestly dont know how I can survive any longer without help. I literally don’t know how.
