I finally said heck with it and applied for Social Security Disabilty on May 9th, Today, I got approved.  That was processed faster then I ever antcipated.   Still have to wait 6 months but going on State Disablity for now.  Ive been a year on chemo, my hands and feet are purple, just need to take some time and get healthy.  CEA is still creeping up, I'm on Xeloda and have had 2 Avastin infusions, CEA still went up 10 points.  Another CT in 3 weeks.  


We shall see! Hope you all are doing good!  As good as we can be!

Good for you.  You have been fighting and trying to work for so long and now it is time to say enough.  Not its your time.  Get yourself on a healthy path, and to *&$ with working.  Financially it can be a hit but it has a way of working itself out. 

Best Wishes - Tina
