Small victory

Recommended Posts


I just wanted to share a little bit of good news. My long term disability claim was approved after 2 months of stress of getting all my paperwork together (the clinic I go to is quite inefficient) and being grilled by the insurance guy. I have talked with some of you regarding insurance woes and big thanks for all your encouraging words. It is true, we should never take no for an answer after what we have been through. Now I can finally focus all my energy to getting better. I have my follow-up MRI on Monday, June 6th and I hope all would be well.

Have a great day everyone!

Congratulations Ann! :-D It seems to be the norm that you do have to fight insurance companies, as they'll do their best not to pay out ... whether it's for health claims or other matters... glad that you fought and won!

Wishing you all good things for your MRI and please let us know how you get on....

Love K xx

Congratulations Ann!

I just posted in the green room everything they want me to gather. It's crazy that we have to work so hard after a SAH to prove we are ill. I'm so happy for you and your news puts me back in a positive place! :-D

Yay! That's great news :) I know how awful it is to have to jump through hoops.... I got my ESA (unemployment) but am still waiting for the Tribunal for DLA (disability living allowance). And my SAH was nearly 16 months ago!!

Hi guys,

Thanks for all your replies. My neurosurgeons did not really discuss my MRI in detail. They said it looked good, coil was intact and there was nothing to worry about. I am happy with that no questions asked!:-D Well, I could not resist asking about the sharp pain I feel behind my right eye. The Fellow looked at it and discussed it with my neuro, the "main" guy outside the room. (Sorry, I am confused with all these titles. Lol) Heard some whispers but when they came back said that maybe I should not be reading a lot YET. I took note that I felt the pain after reading 45 pages. It was a great book!:-P Again, they advised that I take it easy and listen to my body and rest lots.

Anyways, I do have a question has any of you dealt with a Rehabilitation Specialist from your insurance company? I am just wondering what they actually do. I got a voicemail from one today. Thanks in advance!

Goodnight and good morning whichever part of the world you guys are at!
