blimey friday

well today i received an unofficial notice that my VA disability claim was denied   think i'm in a little shock and too tired from work to be very upset about it    maybe it'll hit me manana  Charlie my DAV man says we'll appeal it and it'll get approved   well i'll wait and see on that   at this point i won't count on it   this changes my plans should i get my postal retirement  but my boss wants to threaten me with it, so who knows i may be stuck with the p.o. another 8yrs   the way things are going, nothing should surprise me if it's denied as well   for now, i'll mentally prepare myself to work another 8yrs and wait for the treasures to come as they will or won't   well now i can make a decision about doing the overtime more or not   i've been contemplating that today  all the pros and cons   within the next few days i'll decide   i just know i'm ready for a change and it's much needed    in the meantime i'll take another hike   it always provides clarity....

oh don't give up. Please realize that disability is usually denied one or even more times. They hope people will give up and not try anymore. Besides you are in Gods hands....what will be, will come about. Just take it a day at a time, even an hour at a time, if need be. Now go love on those doggies!   Anne

    Don't give up. The last comment is right. Disability is automatically denied to 75% of first time applicants, and a good number of first time appeals. It's set up that way with the intent of weeding out those who don't really need it as opposed to those who can't do without it. Hire an attorney if you have to. You will only pay him or her if you win. I've been through this process with my husband. Good luck.
