Last week I finally received a letter from Social Security telling me what the decision was in my SSDI hearing. They denied me again. This is the third time. That was a really rough day. I was feeling pretty depressed and hopeless about this whole process, but as I rolled over in bed and read the latest tattoo that I'd gotten, I told myself that I'm not giving up and this is not going to get the best of me.
About 2 1/2 weeks ago I got the word "persevere" tattooed on my right arm where I could easily read it. It was a word that I've been wanting to get tattooed for a while now and it's already helped me during a time when I was emotionally distraught.
I've called my attorney to tell him to go ahead with the appeal process. I'm gonna get disability. I'm not gonna let this long legal process get the best of me. God knows I'm familiar with all the bull you have to go through with the legal system after the car accident lawsuit I had gone through.
I hope you're all feeling well today and that you won't let the pain or others get the best of you either. You're not alone. Take care :)
