I’ve been right where you are. I’m on SSI/SSD right now. I was denied three times, before finally getting approved. It is the hardest thing ever and took over two years. Between my Endo and stomach issues, I can barely move each day, but like your dr said, it’s hard to prove something that is so subjective. Even having pics of my 20+ surgeries, they still fought me. I didn’t hire a lawyer but would advise it. I got cheated out of a lot of back pay because of not having one. I was finally approved after going directly before a judge and answering two questions and explaining how my life is.
I also have taught myself how to coupon and train others in my town. Have you seen that show Extreme Couponers? Ya, I’m kinda like that.
Feel free to write me for any questions regarding either thing. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m praying for you! I’m only 30 and I get it. It’s SO hard to be disabled so young.
