    Umm I just received a call that I was accepted for ssi (Supplemental Security Income). This is the first good news I've heard in a year. Things are finally starting to look up for me. With this, I can actually have hope for the future. Thanks to everyone who have helped me along the way, telling me that things will get better. For once, I see, that things actually do change, sometimes for the better. I'll be getting almost 4000 bucks in the mail within the next two months, so I guess now is as good as any time to celebrate. :party:

    if i may ask, why did your employer let you go? i had a similar situation where i tried to commit suicide at work and they wouldn't let me have my job back. i was on some harsh medication.

    They kept saying it was hardship on the department even though there is enough people to cover my duties. Technically, while hospitalized, I am considered disabled. Most employers don't view "Mental Illnesses" as legit conditions and discriminate quite often. According to some lawyers, I have protection under ADA.

    You may want to consult as well,,,,,they can't just "let you go" when you have a disability,,,,
