Today has been a day from hell, there just isn't any other way to describe it. The insurance company that has been providing disability coverage for hubby has decided rather than put him on total disability they would cut his benefits off. So even though he can hardly walk across the floor without stumbling, is in constant pain and has major chest pains on a regular basis their investigation deems he is fit to go back to work and get this .........they recommend that he become an electrical lineman or cable installer. How's that for a kick in the teeth after spending 12 years in school to become multi-ticketed (plumber, gasfitter, electrican, HVAC mechanic, pipefitter, boiler technican) they have the nerve to tell him he needs to start over and do something else. I don't know whether to cry or scream I am so mad.
We placed a call to our lawyer's office and just waiting to hear back as to when we can get an appointment. I don't normally believe in sueing anyone for anything but this time I think it is warranted. And if they want a fight then we'll give them one. In the mean time he now has to go back to work or lose his benefits and we have no idea where the company will send him as they lost the contract at the place he was working prior to going off sick. Please pray for us, we are going to need all the help we can get. My wages barely cover our mortgage payment, I am totally not sure what is going to happen.
He was so devastated when he got the letter today that I had to come home early from work to try and settle him down, he was threatening all kinds of things. He's finally calmed down and is watching TV. I can't even begin to imagine how he is feeling. And on top of all this he is booked for his ear surgery tomorrow.
Right now just the thought of food makes me sick to my stomach. This is gonna be a rough road to hoe and with Christmas coming it's gonna be hard. Please forgive me if I don't post daily for the next couple of days, there will be so much going on that I may not get here.
I will be thinking of you all and know that you are there for me. God bless you all.
