Quoting It's Delivered:" How is the disability going? have you heard anything back? You will find someone who loves you and your daughter...I did. Keep faith."
I had to have a hospital inpatient stay for depression/suicidal ideations (I'm doing better now), and thankfully, that kind of through a wrench in the process. Instead of straight up denying me for my disability and THEN going to the appeals process, they're filing that I didn't present enough information (since this came in past the submission date) and moving straight on to the appeal. It'll take a month or two off of the wait time, but I could still have anywhere from four months to a year to get approved. It's definitely a process.
I've decided that I'm not even going to worry about dating until the disability goes through and I'm at least somewhat independent. I'm not in a position right to get attached and dependent on someone only to have them leave. I know being on welfare isn't exactly the best life, but I'm going to try to be as self-supportive as I can before I can let a man into our lives.
I really am ready for it though. This is the longest I've been single since I started dating. Over a year. It'd be nice just to hold hands and be able to talk to someone. =[
