Disability Blues: The Bombshell

Today, I was delivered an atom bomb.

I been out of work for a long time (two 1/2 months) with a back injury. I been calling, and calling, and waiting for a call to schedule a evaluation, cause I thought that’s what I needed to get back to work.

I get a call from the benefits coordinator for my job, and GUESS WHAT MOFOS?!? I was supposed to be working since February 1st! And my doctor conveniently FORGOT TO TELL ME!!

So now, I am wracked with anxiety over when I should go back to work and wether I even have a job anymore! I could’ve known sooner if I had just done more advocating for myself. Let this be a lesson to anyone who is disabled and working: NEVER STOP ADVOCATING FOR YOURSELF.

Well, that’s all the rant I have left. Till next time!
