    Hello everyone,

    I just wanted to quickly write this before I go back to packing... Sept 24th of this year I applied for disability, I brought the forms to my doctor on the same day.... I received notification that Toronto received it on October first and it could take ninety working days to find out one way or the other if I would qualify for disabilty.... I received confirmation that was qualified yesterday... It didnt' even take a month.... I can't beleive it I thought I would be fighting this for a year or more... There has been so many horror stories... of people needing disability and not being able to get anything.... I feel very good today.... I am not sure what the next step is but I am sure they will contact me... AS they said someone would....
    Just wanted to share my good news with everyone....

    Take care

    Love Penny

    That's great news Penny :)

    It's good to know that it doesn't always go badly. I applied myself in September but will have to wait a year to know whether it's accepted or not. For me it's not really a money issue as I already receive sick pay benefits and I wouldn't have both but the recognition is important and also, perhaps in the future I'll be able to work a little whereas on sick benefits you're not allowed to at all (all this in Belgium's complicated system).

    Well, at least they get it right sometimes. Really, I'd have been flabergasted if they'd turned you down with everything you have to cope with.

    hang in there and genle hugs:blush:

    Congratulations Penny.

    Not sure what the Canadian system is like but here in the USA it can be years before your approved. I was lucky too, got it first time out.

    I hope you are celebrating tonight.;)
