I have all these symptoms too... the heart palpitations, sweating, flushing, feeling extra emotional. My coworker said something to me that normally would not upset me and I started to have tears in my eyes and I couldn't help it at all I had to walk away. I thought it was probably all due to my anxiety but I've never experienced it like this before. I got 8 trigger point injections in my thoracic area on Friday, so it's almost been a week for me now. I am also wondering when my back pain should feel better?? My doctor also never told me any of this, I can't believe how common it seems to be!!
That’s it for this week, but I still have plenty of blunt, honest advice bottled up inside. Tell me, what’s troubling you? Is work getting you down? Are you having problems with a friend or a coworker? Is your love life going through a rough patch? Do you just feel lost in life, like you have no direction? Tell me, and maybe I can help. I probably won’t make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, but sometimes what you need is some tough love. Ask away in the comments below, or email me at the address you see at the bottom of the page ( please include “ADVICE” in the subject line ). Or tweet at me with #ToughLove ! Also, DO NOT EMAIL ME IF YOU DON’T WANT YOUR REQUEST FEATURED . I do not have time to respond to everyone just for funsies. ‘Til next time, figure things out for yourself.
I have been on Unum’s long term disability since Sept. 2009. Despite the ridiculous attempts they make to find reasons to deny a person, I have been getting my benefits. In Sept. of 2011 I was awarded a fully favorable award from SSDI – and I was aware that it would be an offset and that I would have to pay back my lump sum. With that said, my ex-wife got the benefits awarded to my children as they do not live with me. Unum is now demanding I pay them a retro payment that includes the money that went to my ex-wife! How can they hold me responsible for money I did not receive? They also want to reduce my monthly benefit by the amount my ex receives for the children! How can I be held responsible for money I don’t get?
