My first attempt at getting Disability benefits was denied.  I appealed that decision – and got denied again.  The last part of the process involves seeing a Disability Judge (who hopefully is in a good mood that day.).

My Disability hearing was scheduled a few days before Thanksgiving.  I was very anxious that the judge would deny my claim simply because she had to work during Thanksgiving week.  Writing haiku helps me cope with stress.
