Navigating the Choppy Waters of Long Covid Disability

UPDATE (February 2023.) Working with a law firm, I have been notified that I have been approved for Social Security Disability.

Not uncommon considering the breadth of my disabilities.  Disclaimer: This is my experience and opinion; NOT professional employment or disability advise. Consult with your spouse, partner, family, and attorney before navigating these "choppy waters." If you've read any of my blog posts, you know I draw quotes and analogies from film quite often. When talking or writing about Long Covid Disability, I'd quote Chief Brody (from Jaws , "You're gonna need a bigger boat" to navigate these waters. It's hard to put my Long Covid life into perspective. It's not appropriate or fit
