I don't have to tell those of you with Fibromyalgia how it takes away or at least changes life as you knew it.
I have been fighting to feel better for too many years to count. I thought once my Daughter graduated from High school and left for college I would have enough time to focus on improving my life. Wow, I hit 40 and feel worse than my Mother, I can't even keep up with her.
After much thought I finally had to give in to the ideal of going on Social Security Disability. Friends, Family, Doctors and even my previous employer agreed with my decision. Now lets see what Social Security has to say about it.
My question to anyone out there that may have applied or knows someone that has applied, what results did you or they get? Most say they deny you at first, but you must appeal. I NEVER thought at my age or any age I'd need help, but it's clear I can't rely on my health from day to day it changes from bad to worse. This is what I must prove to them. Any advice would be appreciated, it's in the works right now so I'll let you know how it goes.
