  •  Thank you. Silver lining: Social Sec. disability. (4+ / 0-)

    Don't I recall that you have an SSA disability claim pending? If so, your dialysis has a silver lining:

    6.02 Impairment of renal function, due to any chronic renal disease that has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of at least 12 months. With:

    A.Chronic hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis

    Thank you for sharing your experiences. The more people know about stuff like this, the more they support universal healthcare.

      We went in for the hearing last Wednesday. For sure I have SSDI from 03/07 forward. Not sure about before that yet; that has to be decided. I'm waiting to hear. But for certain I do have it; now I just have to wait for it a few months more.

      Want to be a living kidney donor? I need one from someone with a bloodtype of B or O. Drop a note at riverheart.livejournal.com.
