I've been working on getting my green card renewed so that then I can apply for disabilty. I've been working on it since the latter part of June. At that time I rang up the evil 800 number for the government department, and was on hold for a long, long time, then I was treated like sheep by a nasty woman who nonetheless gave me a lot of information.

I made an appointment with my doctor, and asked him if he thought I was a good candidate for a home visit, and he emphatically replied, "Yes!"
