I don't suppose anyone's retirement works out as expected. I am thinking a lot on this lately as I'm going through the process of filling out the forms that will enable my pension and SSDI to continue. Presumably they will continue. I hate living with the fear that I will have to run the gauntlet of opthalmologists, neurologists, arthritologists, and shrinkologists to prove that I'm still blind, arthritic, depressed, and prone to seizures.
Do they think I'm going to get better? I really hate bureaucracy in general and insurance companies in particular.
