 I understand completely.  I am going through rehab and I know its hard to get 
a job when we are disabled.  I was on SSI for a lot of years.  Goodluck with 
them, I do hope that you can get them on your side.

    I totally agree, I had to jump through hoops all the time when I was onSSI 
.  I finally was able to get SSDI after working 7 years.  They sometimes can be 
very hard to deal with.

      Yeah, I agree!
      This whole thing is!
      And yet they could spend billions on killing people?
      Or 20 dollars per tray of ice cubes at the pentagon?
      Yeah, I heard about that today.
      Isn't that ridiculous?

        Hi Frank,
        They told you that you'd lose your MediCal? That's so stupid! I've 
never been told that when I lived in California.

          Hi Jake,
          Believe me you are!
          Just by showing your concern in writing back helps me to know that 
I'm not the only one.
          You know, they got mad at me once because I wasn't using my medic 
cal, or how ever you spell it, enough?
          I told them that I was a vary healthy person and that I didn't want 
to use it more than I needed to, but they said that I had to use it more or I 
would lose it.
          Could you believe that?
          O well, on with life. Lol!
          Frank

            Hi Frank. You and me both. Not to get off on a tangent, but it 
seems I am being screwed by not having a job. I think my parents and I are 
going to make an appointment with SSI. At least that is what I've been told. My 
parents both have fulltime jobs though, and it has been hard finding time for 
everything. But I really think I need to remind them yet again. Somewhere I 
heard about a website located at www.disabilitysecrets.com . I've never been 
there myself though. Sorry I'm not being of much help.
            Jake

              Hi,
              Maybe this isn't the place to ask this, but I know that there's 
allot of good, knowledgeable, and caring people on this list.
              Does anyone have any info that would help me with a problem with 
SSI?
              It's not a big problem, only 29000 dollars worth!
              Ouch, ouch, and triple ouch!
              I don't want to get to personal on this list, but I don't know 
who to turn to, or maybe if there's an agency that helps with these kind of 
things.
              Sad and concerned face!
              Please, hel'l'l'l'l'l'l'l'l'l'l'l'l'l'l'l'l'l'p!
              Frank
