  • Mood: Distressed
I just got a call from my former employer, a large telecom.  They are starting the process of canceling my long term disability.   They say it is due to the fact that they don't have up-to-date info from my treating physician, but every time they have asked for that, I have told them there is no treatment for my condition and therefore no "treating physician" and, after volunteering to go see any doctor that they would like, they have always said "OK".  My regular doctor who I see for colds or the flu won't fill out medical info for my condition because she isn't "treating" me for it, and the closest doctors that do "treat" this condition (when it is "treatable") are a six-hour drive from my house and are the ones that told me that there is nothing they can do for me because they can't determine the cause.  So now, some sort of automatic termination of benefits has been triggered for my long-term disability benefits and I'm still over a year away for a hearing for any Social Security benefits.  I've left a VM for some supervisor that can override that, but would really appreciate it if you could keep this in your prayers.  The stress over this isn't good for me.  I'm having to go lay down now because my entire head is numb and I'm having chest pains.  If you don't see me around much over the next couple of days, you'll know why.

I send lot's of positive thoughts your way Daniel. I hope you find some doctor who confirms the diagnoses that there is no treatment for you at the moment. One would think that those who came to that conclusion should stand up for you. I am much behind with reading journal and messages and hope that by the time this gets you the problem is solved and that you don't have to worry anymore. :hug:

What ever happens Daniel, trust in the Lord. He's got all things under His control and He loves us. So have faith that He'll pull through for you. I'll be praying. :)

I'm sorry this is so stressful for you Daniel. There has to be advocates at the State level who can help you navigate this. Don't loose your voice and don't give up. I am sending my thoughts and prayers. :love: Kathy

Sending good, healing thoughts your way. If you have a statement from one doctor saying there is no treatment for your disability, you can appeal. But do that when you feel strong.
