I have my original SSD case at the Federal level, waiting for answer. I filed a new claim on March 2009 per attorney's recommendation.
My attorney's office said I could work for up a certain amount of time/money while waiting for the decision. I got a Part-time job, working in fast food, 4-5 hours a day 4 days per week. We were behind in bills, I felt so bas HB only one working, so I went back to an old employer from 1999, Mgr is a good friend w/HB. I did explain to him I have Lupus but that I would try my best to be quick and efficient.
The people that work there are fast and I feel like I'm a hinderance to them, like on my second day, a co-worker said outloud "you're doing good, real good", then he looked at his friend and laughed a little and said to her "you know what I mean". When I was done with my order and no customer's I told him "I know you were being sarcastic with what you said, I hope you are never in a situation like you just put me in cause Karma's a @#$%, then you'll know what I mean.
Before this job I got a part-time job at a Dr's office, but my short-term memory is bad, I didn't want to screw up there, I had a hard time filing (which in the past has been so easy).
While at work I'm in so much pain, I want to sit down, I've asked to take a ten min break once before, this was only an hour after I had a Twenty min. break. I don't want to keep asking, some times I sit down in lobby when no customer's are there and pretend to tie my shoes, just to feel a lil relieve.
Today, got my first paycheck, (big diff.then what I was use too).
But it felt great paying bills today, and knowing that I was able to give Dear Hb some cash this morning for gas, till his payday tomorrow. He's like"wow" look who's giving me money, lol"
Has anyone been in a similiar situation?
