A:I don't know how helpful I can be. I have a couple of ideas though. It sounds like your new doctor is not too familiar with your case. Perhaps it would help if he were to talk to your former rheumatologist in Florida. Whenever we move, I always have the new doctor contact the former one. If that's not helpful, then you might consider getting a different rheumatologist if possible. If there aren't other rheumatologists near you, then a very understanding PCP might be more helpful in dealing with this situation. If there are any support groups in the area (chronic pain, arthritis, lupus), then someone at one of them might be helpful in locating a good PCP. Soc. Sec is a process & you know that! You've already been through it to get soc sec. Don't panic. Panicking will not help. Line up all your little ducks, get your old doctors records etc. Yes it sounds like you need a new doctor too. Calm down and take a big breath! Think back on how you got SSI and now you will need to repeat the process. The GED is not a bad idea. It would be something positive you could do for yourself. You are obviously intelligent - it shows in your writing. Where abouts in PA did you move? I grew up in P
A: - there are some good hospitals up there. Losing your SSI could be a real problem for you right now so concentrate on that first. Make a list of what and how you got SSI to start with. List the things that are different now and the problems you have had since you have been on it. Then work on documenting everything - old med records - hospital records, etc. They aren't just going to kick you off unless it can be proved that you are capable of working and supporting yourself. The rules have changed over the years to keep people from riding the system. My brother-in-law went through the same panic a few years ago. He is badly crippled with arthritis. His meds cost a small fortune. Could he work - yes. Can he drive- no. How could he get to work- no public transport where he lives. We want him to get a computer so he could work at home. It won't happen. I know two people that work from their home. One writes resumes for people and the other does medical billing. They both make darn good money at home in front of the computer. So with a little education you could do something. But right now you've got to handle the SSI stuff. That's your priority. Secure that first and then look at what you can do. You may not need to be on SSI in another five years but until you are capable of obtaining decent work you need it.
