It’s Been So Long Since I’ve Posted



It’s been a long while since I’ve posted on my blog–so much has been going on in my life, so many changes.   One change I was afraid would happen didn’t.  I wasn’t sure if I would be able to keep my house after the long term disability payments from my former job expired.  Now I’m living on just SSDI.  Maybe I shouldn’t say just–because I am happy to have it.  And I am happy that I will be able to keep my house!  I’ve found many programs that provide help for low-income people.  Did you know that if you qualify for EBT (food stamps), you also qualify for a free phone?  Call the food stamp number for your state and ask them about the phone.  Social Security has drug assistance–to help with the medicare premium, co-pays, and the donut hole.  The Hardest Hit Funds will help if you can’t pay your mortgage, if you are behind on your mortgage, and if you owe more on your house than it’s worth.  Like I do!  There’s a lot of paperwork to handle and documents to gather, copy, and send.  But it’s worth it.

Another change is that I am going to school on-line to go back into my former profession:  medical coding.  I am going to do that part-time to supplement my SSDI income.  As much as the law allows, hopefully.  And I’m having an injection into my back in about two weeks.  I sure hope it helps.  Until something helps with the spondylolisthesis (which means one of my vertebra has slipped and isn’t where it’s supposed to be), this back pain is keeping me from doing anything physical.  I can’t even go grocery shopping without help!  Thanks Mom!!

And thanks to all of you for still subscribing to my blog even though I’ve neglected it lately.  I will try not to do that again!!
