Hi Mary,
Thank you for your kind words, and your thoughts on all of this.
I put this out on the list for two reasons.
First, because I didn't know who to turn to for advice, and second, so other 
people could know what kind of things we blind and disable people have to go 
I know that it's my problem and my problem alone, but I feel that I have found 
allot of caring friends all of a sudden by joining this list.
After I sent my initial post, I had mixed feelings about sending it, but it was 
gone, and there was nothing I could do about it.
Some times, as in this case, it was just good to get it out of my system.
Maybe not for sympathy, or to feel that they are wrong, but just to share the 
goods and the bads.
I know that it is partly my fault for not saving a copy of my reports at the 
time, but the thing now is to find a solution to it.
Thanks to all of you that have posted on this topic, and thanks to the rest of 
you for sharing this list with me.

  Frank, I really hope you can get this straightened out. Looks like a bunch of 
bureaucrats like to boss people around and you're one of the victims. 
Bureaucrats are all over the place. There is a class action suit going on with 
three people sue-ing IBM because they never got the over time they deserved. My 
group never did either. We will never see anything come from it, but the 
company got ten years of free work out of us. Now the news is also saying the 
pension plans are going away in 2008, and if you want a pension, it comes out 
of ten percent of your salary and gets put into a 401(k) plan. So many 
companies are doing that these days, because it saves them money and the 
workers get the rotten end of the deal, as usual. So either way you slice it, 
it ain't a real thick slice; whether you work or not, somebody's after you. I 
sure hope you can get this straightened out; it's the most unreasonable 
thoughtless thing for somebody to do to somebody else, especially since you 
have no way on this earth of paying that amount of money in years, let alone in
