Called lawyer. Still no SSI Appeal hearing date. It’s been 6 (now 10) months. How in the world are people supposed to get by without assistance?! I am entirely out of money and yet the bills are still coming. I need to see my doctors and pay co-pays. I need to keep my insurance. My prescriptions keep adding up. My utilities don’t go down. I still need to eat. This cannot be the way I live the rest of my life! In tears, in agony, and alone. No Medicaid until SSDI approved. How does one person fix an outdated, backlogged, broken system?!
