Worst Day Ever

23 Feb

I can safely say that about that day. The day I finally got to go before the SSI disability judge.
I don’t know if I ever got into it, but I had a incident that has messed up my life. Like seriously, I walk with a cane… But anywho,  after months of waiting and not wanting to deal with lawyers, I went in alone. Which in hindsight was a terrible idea. If you ever have to go before the SSI judge( I hope you don’t), and they ask if you want more time to have someone with you, even though it will take MONTHS for a new hearing, TAKE IT AND RUN!!!

My day began by dropping off my daughter at school and rushing to the bus stop. And of course as I’m  hobbling down the street 2 buses(that I need) fly by.  So I waited, 30 mins for the next bus…  As Rapid buses were flying by. (To say that I’ve got a huge love hate relationship with Google Maps, is putting it lightly… very lightly!!) Instead of the regular bus, I could have hopped on the Rapid and been on time!!  An option that google never gave me!
Anyways, as I started crying waiting for the bus, I  saw it coming. It stopped at a stop for minutes, and I’m like WTF this is seriously happening to me!  So now I’m crying, when it finally gets to me, I’m crying on the bus! (yes,  I was THAT person!) I finally got to my transfer point.. As 2 Rapid buses fly by!! I literally broke down on Santa Monica Blvd and Wilshire and I’m sure it was a sight to see.

That is the one thing that I can’t stand about public transportation… No matter what you have to do,  you’re on their schedule. I had to call the disability office and beg for them not to skip me! They said ok, and I calmed down. I took a minute to look up this judge, and after reading the comments I knew I was fucked. Lawyers were saying she a tough nut. When I finally saw her, Judge Logic, she was a shrewd woman who could give no fucks with short hair.

I was asked before I entered the room to take off my sunglasses that I wear because of light sensitivity. I asked her if I could put them on and she said no, because nothing in my file said I need them. BUT I SENT IN ALL MY PAPER WORK! No fucks! After hearing me crying as I tried to see, it was deemed that I could work and that was that. And she even said, “That is all, thank you for coming even though you were late.”  I wanted to gouge her eyes out! My eyeballs were throbbing, my hearing was done, and I left with nothing.

So of course I was crying AGAIN on Wilshire Blvd and on the bus to go to my Dr’s appointment. This is where I learned that one of my favorite Dr’s was going to be leaving. The Dr who remembers my husband on the first day fighting for me,  saying I wasn’t faking it. The Dr who did everything in her power to get me to the right specialist. Dammit man,  what a fucked up day…
She even told me 1st! And… AND was scared that she would leave and I wouldn’t see again. I’ve never had a nicer Dr and I don’t know if I  will again.
