Get hold of a group like Binder and Binder. They can get you SS disability. If you were in Illinois it might be easier, but I don't think there is a difference. I'm here daily, and I sense God wanting me to help others through this, just as I am trying to get through this. But hold on, and talk to God every minute. He hears you, and I know things will get better. Charley
Thank you for your kind words and I am sorry for your loss. I know how I feel after 11 yrs but cannot imagine how you are dealing with the loss after 33 yrs together. I hope that we can find purpose to all of this but I know it will take time. God bless and take care. Kat
