The Return of BureaucratiZILLA

Today, I have my first Social Security appeal hearing.  My private insurance carrier forced me to apply for this and other benefits, to get me off their rolls.  As I understand it, things may go one of two ways:  either I get awarded benefits and my income is cut below the poverty line,  further, OR, my appeal is denied, and there will be additional appeals.  Our government in action.  As if we can afford this as a Nation?
Then, tomorrow, it’s back to Vocational Rehabilitation.  Another insurance company mandate.  Who knows what they will say?  I’ve been told if I’m awarded SS, I cannot work for 1 year, and they will cancel efforts to get me back to employment. 
The interesting thing is when it occured to me that my fear of these bureaucratic behemoths was false, that they indeed were not God, but my Higher-Power was, much of my fear went away.
Who knew?
