Hi Jess,I freelance and I work with my affected arm so it was excruciating. I finished that job last June and I have been off work ever since. I had state disabiity insurance for 6 months but it ran out. I am also looking for some part time work that doenst include using my right arm or computer but that will probably be hard to find. I am trying to reapply for a new disablility claim but dont know if they will approve it. I am also thinking of applying for long term SSI disability or Workmans COmp since I am not anywhere near going back to my regular work and now I am starting to look into surgery.
I have heard that both of these are time consuming and hard to get. Anybody have any advice?
