Lawyer Right Away Vs. After You Have Tried Yourself
Posted 08 September 2011 - 08:32 PM
I was just wondering the opinions of if I should contact a lawyer right away or try myself first? There is a lawyer in my area thats free up front, and if u win he draws out of that. I should have done this a long time ago, but my husband is in denial...."with me slepping half the day and night and taking 6 medications, acting out my dreams, confusing reality with a dream I had, etc." He just doesn't want a "sick" wife. Which I cant blame him. But at this point he has lost his job, and we are selling our belongings and his truck to make it till our house sells. At that point, if still no job, we move into my moms unfinished basement. Sorry for all the info....just had to vent somehow.
Thanks in advance for your advice!!!

Its me again who posted this; I went to the lawyer with all my medical junk, etc, and my husband. This man specializes in DD claims, mind you. He was about as helpful as a dancing pig in a tutu!!! He said to just file it, and if its denied (80%) he says come back then, like I was wasting his time!!!! Anyways I dont have an actual diagnosis, but seems i just keep getting worse. My hands are so shakey i can hardly write this, and my handwriting has changed drastically!! I asked my neurologist if it looked like Park....but he said no? Any suggestions?
Thanks a Million,

Can you please, please PM me or email me with the advocate information, etc? (I'll send my email to you in a PM)
I live in LA. Narcolepsy w/ mild cataplexy since I was 13, diagnosed 2 1/2 years ago. I'm almost 37. No support from anyone really, including family. I worked full time the last 4 months but my health, home, energy reserves are almost depleted. I wanted to try and hoped w/ steady income I'd somehow find a way to take better care of myself, but it hasn't gone that way. I'm deteriorating rapidly. Trying to get In Home Social Services...I don't want to go on disability but my health insurance (cal-cobra) doesn't cover non medical assistance with Daily Life Activities. My income the last 4 months is too high for Medi-Cal but they said I might get coverage I can pay for...special circumstances?
Anyway I'm rambling now. I just don't know how to survive without some help, and I don't have savings and my finances are a mess, so I don't know how I'll eat and pay rent if I can't continue on this freelance job, and apply for SSD. (I was on unemployment before this).
Thanks everyone for sharing your stories and advice and venting...all of it makes me feel less alone.
Like anything or anyone when dealing with someone for help and all you get is the run ( when you get that feeling)(the way they look at you )around its time to look else where ... We were worried about this but to worked out well...
