Yesterday, I got the best news I've gotten in a very, very long while. Those of you who have known me and followed me for years or even have started recently might be aware of my long battle with the courts in order to get on disability for my lupus and fibro, both of which keep me from working.

I know they do because while this case was underway, I even tried to hold down a job and ended up catching every little bug that came through the office and got pink eye three times. There's nothing quite like having a compromised immune system.

So, yesterday, when a letter showed up on my porch I was almost afraid to open it. In fact, the first thing I saw when I opened the letter was the appeal information and I was almost crushed right there. Then I looked up a bit and saw Notice of Decision - Fully Favorable. I called my lawyer's office and they confirmed they had gotten the letter too and it meant what I thought it did. My social security had been approved by the Judge. My years long legal battle with the government in having to "prove" that I'm sick is over!

And not just that, the decision states my disability started back in 2009 - I was told to expect that at most it would only go back a year or so. For the judge to reach it back that far is almost totally unheard of. This means once they figure out how much I'm getting a month, my back payments will go back to November 2009.

There's some amazing legal take down of the State's "experts" in the judge's decision. The take down was a thing of beauty, but I'm not going to transcribe the letter here.

With this off my shoulders I should hopefully be around more. Not having to stress out about my court case is... I feel a bit better already. Not suddenly and magically healthy, obviously. I hurt like hell today. But mentally in a bit better place!


Chuck and I did some math last night and before the lawyers fees, if the 880 I was originally quoted still stands, we're looking somewhere around 36000. I can't even.

An update

Apparently it's illegal to stay in a house with no power after 8:30, at least in the city I'm in. Some ordence of something.

Anyway, I'm at my mom's. No, we haven't gotten any help on the bill. And no, I don't expect things will turn out okay this time. This is like a softer form of eviction. I'm going to go get the dry socket looked at tomorrow, but given the pain has kept me from sleeping well AT ALL and I've forgot my muscle relaxers tomorrow will be another day off of work.

I'm a very depressed Jo. A few of you have offered hugs, but I'm disappointed that none of my family members have even said anything. :/ Many of them follow my face book updates and, well, everyone's more concerned about Aunt Jenny's new baby then they are about me and my family getting kicked out of our home. Since what's happening is basically a softer form of eviction.

There is emergency assistance available. But they want all the documentation, including my birth certificate, which, surprise, surprise we don't have. As I was born in Iowa it will take about TWO WEEKS to get it. I do not expect we'll be able to get it.

Hell, we don't even have car insurance right now because of how little I've been pulling in.

cut for the emo )

I dislike my life at the moment.

Well, Chuck is in the hospital. His colonoscopy had one of the complications. Namely the one where your bowl shuts down and stops working.

So he's been in the hospital for about a day now. Ad's here with me now, ran myself into the ground today. I hurt like hell. Got the star wars book "Death Star" wherein a character is named Villian Dance. Who is a member of the Imperial Navy. Villian Dance.

Seriously. You know, I bet he got teased all the time, then decided to join the empire, because then he wouldn't be a dancing Villan.

I'm really out of it.

Adam's playing DW6.

And he was mistake for my husband today, which is like the third time it's happen. I'm going to get, "This idjit is not my husband."

I am really, really not feeling it right now. What it is, I'm not entirely sure, but I'm not feeling it. I feel very out of it. I wanted Chuck to stay home, but it's his game night and I shouldn't ask him to stay home just for my benefit. He needs time out with his friends.

I love my baby dearly, but I can't help but to think I'm doing something wrong. That I'm always doing something wrong.

That there's something wrong with me, maybe. And for some reason this always happens on Sunday.

I don't like being alone, even with Vivi here, I'm still alone. Which sounds retarded as I type it out, doesn't it?

Moral of this story: Life sucks, and I don't have the will power to keep my husband from playing D&D every Sunday.
sephirajo: (Fragile... must be italin.)
Yeah, I've been a bad girl with no updates. I'll try to write some more tonight but the last few weeks have been draining.

To answer Wicked's question: I'm due in February. The end of the month, the 26th. I'm looking forward to it. ^___^ (If only so I can eat and not still be hungry, stupid diet.)

For Jai, I will have belly pictures, just have to remind the hubby to pick up a camera.

We are really short cash wise right now, but that's not so much a problem as it is an annoyance.

Other than th at, life has been... interesting. My Grandmother (the cool one) just got out of surgery for breast cancer and will now be starting chemo. Last night I had a nose bleed that lasted an hour after literally just exploding all over my dinner plate. We almost went to the hospital.

Apparently, you're not supposed to blow out the snot clots...

That would've been nice to know. But yeah. Not a good last few weeks. I'll do a better update tonight and sorry for the silence, everyone! T__T

sephirajo: (NOOOOOO~!  The sexiest word of them all.)
I got into another accident tonight. This one will most likely be decided to be my fault.

This leaves me carless, mostly cashless and out of work for a couple days. I don't know what I did, but apparently Karma hates me. Heh. "Car"ma. Me or the baby.

This week was going so good too.

And I had the budget planned out perfectly.

Chuck and I are now carless and up shit creek without a paddle.

And randomly... someone at work complained about me wearing perfume. I can't wear perfume... My boss also thought this was funny, he knows how allergic I am to that stuff.

I feel like an idiot and it really raises the urge to curl up somewhere and die.

But my baby's okay - so that's better.

I need to update more often. I know this. But this last month has been totally hellish.

In November I got that tooth pulled - that went badly. I got into a car accident, but luckily the baby and I survived that. I'm now just getting over a massive cold that lasted more than a week (a week I wanted to do Overtime, no less...). I'll be doing overtime again this week and I really hope my husband doesn't decide to go blow money on an expensive gift for my birthday.

So many crappy things have happened in November, I hope this month will be better. The temperature is back down to what's normal in Minnesota - which some people might not consider a good thing, but I don't mind and there's a small scattering of snow on the ground. And my birthday's on the 8th. I'll get to take my family (and hopefully a friend *you know who you are!*) out to my favorite restaurant... even though I can't touch the sake and the sushi at the moment.

I'm going to try to catch up on journal reading. Hee, Chuck did do one thing for me that I consider sweet. He doesn't like Christmas, but we got a Christmas tree and hopefully will be decorating it up tonight.

I love Christmas trees.

I hope this is a good month.

Fuck this.

Fuck this, I don't need this shit.

I post a rant on BRPS, that I admitted was a rant, that I admitted that there should be rants about me and people... DAYS after the fucking fact start tearing into me.

Yeah, this REALLY makes me want to go back to the game, you mother fuckers.

Let me boil down my life for you as it is right now in nice little points.

Point: I'm pregnant, and it keeps me sick, in pain, tired and moody. I admitted I was wrong in several places in the comments.
Point: My husband is ill. Not like oh no the flu ill, but OMG we don't know what the hell is wrong and he could possibly be dying ill. He got CAT scans done and we're waiting to hear back on them. This does NOT make me easier to deal with. Sorry. I hope he's not dying. And I hope they can fix this...as KIDNEY FAILURE (which he may have) is often fatal if they don't treat it time! Lucky me! I could be a window before I'm thirty, oh FUCKING JOY!
Point: We are so broke right now that we're lucky if we can afford food half the time. You know, so broke you have to weigh the scales and decide if you want to be hungry or be able to have enough gas to get to work. And not just occasionally, but ALL THE TIME.
Point: I am NOT the only one who had a problem on this board! It's NOT JUST ME!
Point: I did try to ping mods to get things going. After awhile, when things don't roll, I have a bad habit of saying 'screw this' and walking away. Yes I know I'm a bad gamer, and there should be posts about me here. In fact, I've said as much in comment threads.
Point: I'm a 25 year old wife, expectant mother, family taxi, desk slave, with more problems than I want right now. My husband could be dying, my father IS dying and you know what, I really didn't need all this drama, kthanks bye.
Point: By not mentioning names I was trying to not to start a bitch fit. Well, that obviously failed.
Point: Thank you everyone for the wonderful 'warm fuzzies' during a time which I kind of needed them. To avoid being melodramatic I won't say what I normally would here, but you know what... I don't give a flying fuck.

From now on I will follow my little brother's approach to multi-fandom games that try to take themselves seriously.

1. Get a friend.
2. Play the snipers from Enemy at the Gates.
3. Kill all the other characters from a distance.
4. If there's a Ron Weasly in the game leave him alive to let him suffer.

Well, in my defense, I've been pretty tired.  It seems to come and go in spurts and most likely will for the next 19+ years.  I go in for my ultra sound today, if I have to beat the tech with rubber tubing I will return with pictures of baby! (Gender not included).

We're fostering a cat for one of my friends, and chuck wants to keep him.  He's a lovely dovey kitty and fell asleep on my arm last night while I was writing and working on something spiffy. (The spiffy shall be revealed later on.)

I'll try to catch up on anything I'm behind, but those of you that game with me, if there's something, anything, you need me to do plot wise, PLEASE IM ME!  I have my own little cheapie computer now, so I should be on even when the hubby is killing alliance in WoW.

I've been feeling the baby move a bit recently.  I haven't been gaining much weight - well, I have, but it's all around the stomach.  My thighs have been losing weight, as have my sides.  So, I'm not balloon OUT, just stomach wise.  Girls at work comment on how they can't really tell yet, but I can. XD That, and I tend to wear baggy clothes at work because I hate it when things go up my tummy line.

Well, that's my update.  I'm also totally broke, so if anyone wants to send me gifts of food, I will not protest.  I know it's also Cleo's birthday, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY CLEO!

LOL, I almost mistyped your name.  Yeah, I'm l33t like that.  L33t... makes me think of anarchy... must... get... mission... token... o___o

Okay, for my spiffy thing, I made a video last night! It's kinda choppy, but it's the first one I made in years.  It's set to Rammstein's Engel and features the (the new) B:TAS episode Mad Love and focuses on Harley and the Joker. ^____^

Well, today has been a Long AS Hell day. I'm starting another stint of overtime that will run to friday, I'm most likely going to be doing this next week too. Today, my Dog decided to take off after a bike, with me still attached to his leash. I'm cut up, bruised, scrapped, my only good pair of work pants is a muddy wreck and I'm fucking sore all over. X\ That, and my tooth ache is coming back, but I hope to deal with that soon.

I got a cell phone the other day... and I'm made an AIM name to have for mobile phone use only, in otherwords, when you see me on this name, I'm on my Mobile phone and/or at work. <3 But still, feel free to poke and I'll slwoly type any reply I have. Xd The screen name: PepsiAndPocky. I'll have my phone number up in a friend's only post later... because truthfully, I don't know it and I don't want to look it up. Xd But yeah... that's about it... my hads hurt, my knees are scrapped, and I feel half dead, but I live...

In a fashion.
