Hi Friends, Well, I just got the call from Social Security and I have been approved for benefits. I should be thrilled and yet I am sad because it is the honest truth in my face. I can't remember things anymore, I can't do math, I can't stack memory items, photos, etc. I was driving to work on Dec. 8, 2005. It was -35 below and we were all going for our daily ride to Jackson Hole for work. I had put on a full length mink coat and said to my DH that the seat belt is so bad for the fur. He replied "blood is even worse". How funny that just 5 miles down the road I hit a full grown bull moose at 65 miles per hour. It's head decapitated and came thru the windshield and took me out. I had applied because I could not do accounting work and haven't worked in over a year now. I thought in retrospect that God was preparing me for having a child with Autism. I feel that I am able to better understand Hunter's frustration. They also said they don't feel I can handle my own money so they are paying it to my DH. We have always kept separate finances so this is a big leap of faith for me. I pray he will give me my money. So friends, I am happy to final have an income but also sad that the truth is, my brain is shot!
