It seems that I have been in a holding pattern in my life since last May when I went back on short term disability. A lot has happened since then. During the summer I had 2 more gentamicin injections that didn’t seem to help. I continued on disability till it ran out and so did my job. Right now I am in the middle of trying to get on long term disability and it has been really difficult. The social security disability which I applied for in November takes time to complete. I know that most claims the first time through are rejected which will lead to my appealing the ruling. It will all take time.
So what do I do now?
I am going to continue to research Meniere’s on line and try to learn as much as possible about it. Knowledge is powerful and you can never have enough of it. One thing that I haven’t been doing is walking. I can blame the weather on that for now but I think it is very important to try and do some kind of exercise. Because of my balance problems I will definitely be careful when walking which will help my feel better in this time of such uncertainty. And I am also going to try to lose some weight by eating right (that should be more of a challenge than walking;)).
