I got my medical records today in the mail. A little background, I have an inner ear disease that the doctors office suggested I file for disability and also need further surgical intervention with the recovery time of 6-12 months. In May, I had some paperwork for them to fill out to have the state determine me disabled so I can get the little benefit they give Families without an income without me having to go back to work and there is no time limit on the benefit if I am determined disabled. So, I look through my records today and the form they send back to the state was vague said nothing about my referral for surgical intervention for further treatment and also that they recommended I seek federal disability (as was suggested last year prior to another surgery I had on my ears). I am so pissed. In the section that said any other information of importance that information SHOULD have been in there!!!! My federal disability case will likely take years. But until then if the state determines me disabled I get priority housing, reduced public transportation, and no limit on that little money I get a month. The state determination was to be made by the end of July! Also, I think that if the state determines me disabled it will help my federal disability case. My charts say patient is disabled and can no longer work in it several times! I also have two other documents stating that, that were submitted to the state unemployment office over a year ago and says disability on there and that I have no ability to work indefinately! Heads will roll when I talk to the nurse tomorrow morning! It took me 5 weeks to get my medical records as it is and now I find that they didn't fill out the form with proper information. I'm not happy, I have had this doc for 8 years and trusted him implicitly with my care. His nurse who filled out the form really dropped the ball on this one! It impacts my quality of life so, I feel justified to be irritated!
