When will I become homeless?

A year and a half ago, I wrote to Social Security and CMS:

About three months later, I received a postcard saying my letter was being referred to another office (in New Mexico):

Yesterday in the mail, I received a letter from the Social Security Administration in Kansas City, Missouri:

“We sent you a letter telling you that we were going to review your disability case. However, we do not need to review your case at this time. Therefore, we will not contact your doctor now. We will keep any information that you have given us. We will contact you later if we need to review your case…”

Uh, no, you didn’t send me a letter saying you were going to review my case. I sent you a letter and I never received a response to any of the issues discussed therein. Nothing. Nada.

I always feel anxious when I receive anything from Social Security, just like when I received letters from Unum, my ex-long term disability insurance provider. Since Unum terminated my benefits, I keep waiting for Social Security to do the same. See, disability providers believe that if you’re not taking medications (and seeing a doctor regularly), you’re not disabled:

The DEA and CDC have taken away the most successful treatment for chronic pain. Doctors will no longer treat many pain patients. Medical cannabis programs, where they exist, are too expensive for many of the disabled. So, who has the money and access to see a doctor regularly? Is that a requirement to be disabled? And if you aren’t seeing a doctor, you get kicked to the curb?

No wonder so many people believe in conspiracy theories. Use the drug war to kick people off of disability. Genius.

Checking my mail is a stressful activity. When will I get that letter cutting off my disability benefits? When will I become homeless?

  2. I hate you’re going through this. My Medi-Cal and County funding are being cut off because I didn’t return this years reassessment. The thing is that I did. It’s sitting on my caseworkers desk who admitted it’s there because she is over-loaded. But guess who’s having to go through the trouble to get all this nonsense straightened out? Yep, she won’t do it. Our system is so badly broken. It’s a nightmare.

  3. SSDI is a horror show. In spite of having a neurologist, a rheumatologist, a anesthesiologist pain specialist, and my primary care all telling S.S. I could never work again, it took 7 years and a lawyer to get my disability payments. All this for less than my medications cost per month.
