I stopped working last July. Filed for disability. I'm awaiting a court date now. MS issues with fibro, with anxiety & depression, I'm not the same person I once was. I still have swelling issues that have now gone up to my thigh with pain. I have two aunts who have thyroid problems and one cousin, one of those aunts has diabetes and another cousin has diabetes and I have an aunt who has leg clots. Needless to say, if I knew my father I could probably get a better guess. I did contact my dr and I'm waiting for a response. Pic is from a wk ago.
Sorry to hear about your pain and how you're waiting on a disability court date, so I take it you've been turned down the 3 or 4 times before going before the judge. You stated that you suffer from depression, I hope you're getting meds for that (but not actually taking it on a daily basis) and seeing s psychologist on a regular and calling your disability case manager every day. The more you show how sincere your depression is the sooner you'll get to see the judge. Not sure what state you're in but some states will approve you faster that they will for anything else because they feel that you are suicidal.
I just want to say this because everyone is entitled to their own opinion and until you have filed for disability and read up on what constitutes disability it doesn't matter what State you live in and just because you say it's a federally ran program and that the states don make those decisions you'll still be wondering what can be done to help you get what you need. That's what's wrong now many people want to have an input and not fight , but they are always willing to discourage others just because it didn't turn out right or them. I've bee approved for disability and that's all that matters and I didn't give up.
Crissy, keep waiting and keep calling the person handling your case and make sure you keep saying ok where are we now and let them know that you'll be calling back every other day. I called in 2-3 times a week. When I started my claim I lived in Georgia, I had an attorney that did nothing for me. I moved back to MO and disability services sent me a letter from my attorney stating that he had dropped my case and waived his fees. I proceeded with out an attorney and I informed the judge when she asked me if I wanted an attorney and I told her no because I did all of his work any way and if she didn't believe me that should could call the person in GA who handled my case at the beginning.... KEEP THE FIGHT AND DON'T GIVE UNT.... i'M STANDING WITH YOU. Keepe me informed.
