After much discussion with family I applied for disability on line 08/14. I have worked 32 years as a Nurse, had a Rt. cerebellar stroke Feb.2014 leaving me with balance problems, constant loud buzzing in ears, and increase facial spasms also Cardiologist found small hole in heart which is believed part of the cause of the blood clot which initiated the stroke. I have attempted to work 3 times since which did not last more than a few days to a few weeks. I've been in denial that I can no longer function as a Nurse. How long does it take to hear back from SS Administration once filed? Do you get a letter or phone call?
