I am new at this short term disability thing. I was collecting short term disability through the State and suddenly they cut me off telling me I ran out of funds. This was so unexpected - in turn I applied for long term disability and was told it could take up to 6-mos for them to even consider me. I am currently having bad side effects after only my 3rd chemo out of 12. I am being hit with co-pays everytime I go to the doctor with them sending me for all kinds of tests trying to determine why I am getting right shoulder and back pain to the point I want to run out in the middle of the street screaming help. I lived from pay check to pay check I have not more money. It's rediculous I am now out of money, sick as ever and I don't feel like I can work until the side effects are addressed. Does anyone on here know anything about funding available until long term disability kicks in. I don't know what I'm going to do. I didn't know they just cut people off like that. Thanks.
