I know I should be happy that I finally got a hearing but it's on August 4th and I will be eight months pregnant. As if it's not stressful enough. Oh well, I'm hopeful but realistic at this point because I know it takes some people 3 tries to get approved.

I went to sleep at 10:30 and thought "yay, maybe I'll sleep tonight". Then I woke at 12:30 and haven't been able to go back to sleep since. I have such a hard time dealing with anything stressful anymore. I used to be so great at it. I guess pain does that to you.

I talk to myself and tell myself to let go, let God, accept that I can't control everything, blah blah blah, but I still can't shut off the tape in my brain.

I have an attorney so that should make me feel better. Attorneys are just so smug and condescending sometimes though. But if I get no money, he gets no money.

You'll win the case. After going this far with it---most people do, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

I've been having trouble sleeping also. The neigbors wake me up. And this is not helping the Fibromyalgia, since lack of sleep just aggravates the conditon.
The night before last I was up three times. Last night twice.

I might have to go to Wal-Mart and pick up some more 5-HTP and magnesium--they both seemed to put me in a deeper state of sleep. As it is I take Sonata and Elavil for sleep....but the extras seem to help.

Good luck with the hearing and take care of that baby with some sleep!!!!!

Just want to wish you good luck on your hearing. They do not care about you being pregnant or anything else just be there. I tried for SSD and lost all three times.

I went to sleep at 11 annd woke at 1 am, catnapped the rest of the night. I have been doing this so much lately. Dragging here.

Again Good Luck, Linda
