Hello, my friends/TBI family! I hope you don’t mind me referring to you as family. If you are going to work today or simply enjoying alone time at home, I hope you can take a few moments to “THANK YOURSELF!” I found a quote quote/message on Facebook about the fact that I have already completed my main goals for the day, which are getting our of bed and getting myself some coffee. So far, so good!
Eventually, I will have to re-enter reality. But I will do this with another cup of coffee, to be sure! I have been experiencing the joys of the review of my social security case. I have been cut off, which was a real surprize to me, since I STILL HAVE A TRAUMATICE BRAIN INJURY! Actually, it is a review process that social security does every 5 years or so, I guess.
I am a little more organized this time, so I hope to find the information they need in an timely manner. I’ve been investigating lawyers and refreshing my social security knowledge. I know I’ve been over this information before in the past, but with TBI and short-term memory issues, I will need to go through it again. I found an interesting and informative site I would like to share with you that explains government benefits. It tells you the difference between Social Security Disability Benefits (SSD) and Social Security Income (SSI). I will not get into this because I don’t understand all of it, and I will leave that to your lawyers/social workers/arms workers.
I just took a short break to refill my coffee so now I’m back with renewed energy. Where was I? Okay, social security! Another thing that helps me is getting a folder/binder in alphabetic order to put my important papers and information into for easier access. I also use my planner and the reminder ap and calendar ap on my phone. I also use small paper notes, but that tends to add more confusion. If I have no other option at the time, I use the paper notes but I add the notes into my phone as soon as I can. If it’s all in one place, that’s just less time I have to spend trying to recall where I put them!
I have some more things I’d like to share with you, but I am going to do some work on my social security papers. That’s all for now, and I hope you have a THOUGHTFUL THURSDAY and God bless you!
