I was receiving my medical through social security since 2010 and I got a letter in the mail saying it would be stopped next month because I worked too much and went over the amount. I was wondering if it is possible to fight to to regain it? I also just got a phone call earlier from a law office but they cannot help since they only deal with cases to get approved in the first place. Any ideas on what I should do next? I live in southern California.

Funny thing is I was just on this website right now trying to log. What I'm worried about is that if social security doesn't cover me no more. Am I going to be looked upon as not being disabled because of that?
I can't answer that, I'm afraid. Try the Social Security Law Group for clarification -- they are a national firm dealing with disability. They should be able to answer that, even without a consultation.
Thank you for the information Dancermom.
Deagles, did you stop to think for a moment that this is a positive sign? Your AVM is obliterated, and you can work. You mentioned in your four year anniversary post that you’ve recovered. Take that ball and run with it, young man!!
This is true Tim. I actually spoke with my wife about this. I came to a decision on not to per sue this any longer. I might not be 100% physically better, but I think It’s time to not think of myself as being disabled and I should move forward. I will be getting a gym membership to work my weaker parts of my body and to try to run again. I will push myself the best I can. carefully of course since I was told that once I have a bleed like that there is always a small chance of it happening again even after the gamma knife. I will keep you guys posted about my progress and hopefully put a link down of me running again lol Thank you all for the support!!
Good for you, Deagles! I’ll be rooting for you, and I’m sure many other members will be rooting for you, too! I know that many of us dream of getting back to a life before the AVM struck, and you’ve taken a huge step in that direction, my friend.
