At the "prescription" of my psych. I went to see him Friday, and he had written a letter saying that I am Indefinately in capable of work due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, severe Depression, and Stress, non-work related". He wants me to not get stressed as much as possible, so I gave it to my boss, and he said ok, we can pay you under the table if you want to continue working here (I'm a food-server). I do want to continue working there, I've only had the job for like 2months! It's enjoyable, gives me good money, ya know. I just know that I can't.
So now I will be receiving disability, I sent in my forms on Friday, and the called me this morning @ 9, saying I was accepted, who my "case-worker" is, and how much money I will be receiving monthly.(More then enough to live on, welfare I was getting 580$ WITH a BABY, Disability, I will be receiving 1 250$ NO KID, weird, you bet!) I thought it would take me a lot longer to be accepted, I thought I would need an interview (cuz that'S what my friend had to do, and she has MS.)
I don'T know yet how I feel about this. I WANT to work, but it does add extra stress.
I'm angry in a way, but I'll take a couple of months, and then see, he told me he'll give me stress leave for 2months, and if I want I can go back there and he will pay me under the table (tax-free, that'S good, but I don't need all this money!) Thing is, with a stress leave form work, I will also be receiving unemployement, and I have no clue how that is gonna work, I have to call my case-worker back.
I just wanna be normal.
