Just because...

AMEN!!! I wanna come back as a small lap dog with a nice clean house, a nice mommy and lots of toys. ;)

I'm in a sticky situation with trying to get disability and my parents have been supporting me by paying my rent while I keep re-applying and appealing. So I have to tread softly, especially now with his new "girlfriend". I'm trying to be the good daughter and call him every day, but other than that, I'm trying to distance myself from the whole fucking mess. I have enough shit in my life without asking for more. You know?

HAHA! Same.

You think she'll do something to stop him from paying rent? If she does that, little miss better back off. ;)

Oh, I know. I just applied for disability too, and my parents pretty much let me live with them rent free, but I help keep the house going.

Just do what your doing by calling him, and checking up. At least it let's him know your around.

I dunno how all this will affect me. Dad and I have never been what you;d call "close". I kinda get the feeling that he wants to wash his hands of me. But then he's hard to read. I just feel very strange there now and I know part of it is my issue with his GF.

Good luck with your claim. I'm so sick of this government shit I could spit. Trust me--it takes YEARS to get anything out of them now. I'm so pissed at all those fuckers right now.... No mere words could explain all the shit I've gone through and for how long. It's total and complete SHIT. SO I hope you have a much easier time. *hugs*

And ahhhhhhhh to lead a dog's life! ;)

I don't see him washing his hands of you. It won't be fair for both of you. I say just try your best with her. When your on the phone with your dad, and she's there say "Tell Gigi(?) I said hi." Stuff like that. I do that with my brother's girlfriend. Who makes it really hard to like her sometimes.

My mom got her's in a year. And with the meds, and hospitail stays I had I don't see why they won't give me it. But I heard how hard it is for some. If I don't get this, mom told me I have to get a job. And that scares the crap out of me because I tend to get really sick under stress.

I do tell him to tell her hi for me and I try to stay light and positive. But inside, it's just making me sick. I try to cut him some slack because I know he's lonely *and* I now know that he and Reba dated when they were younger. And the reason I feel the way I do about him washing his hands of me, is he's told me to clear out all my stuff and that everything in the house is going except for his chair and a couple of pictures--so nothing I wanted, I can get. I can't afford storage and I don't have the room for it. So once again, I've got nothing. There's nothing about this situation and my life that brings me any peace or happiness. And I'm damn sick of being stressed.

My first attorney's secretary had a grandchild who had to be fed through a tube and was confined to a wheelchair. He was in the hospital on a fairly regular basis and social security denied him 4 times. SO frankly, I think the soc sec people are full of shit. I'm of the opinion now it just depends on the judge when you get to an appeal. I surely hope your experience is better! *hugs* Please keep me updated on your progress.

I certainly hope NOT! I just wanted you to be prepared for a long wait and a big fight. I've never know or heard of anyone who got it on their first try. I really, REALLY hate our government sometimes.

Yeah, I talked to my mom about it, and she said we'll fight if I don't get it the first time. My mom got on the first try, but they would ave looked like asshole not giving it to her. She can barley walk half the time. The goverment is flawed so much.

They really are! If you have a child or not an American by birth, you'll get it. And how screwy is that???

What?! Crazy!

Uh huh. I never said it made sense. Understand my frustration? If I were something other than white, an illegal or had a kid, I'd have not been suffering through all of this for almost 10 years. I'm angry and thoroughly disgusted.

I would be too. *hugs*
