I agree, don't give up! It took 6 years for me, to be honest, my husband and I both had pretty much given up on ever seeing anything, then I got a letter for an ALJ hearing and was approved ~ finally!! Why do they make you wait so long, I am sorry, but there is no reason that it should take 2-3 months to start. I know, I've heard all the stories about backlogs, etc, but it doesn't make any sense to me. Most of us on this board are in the same fix and can understand the frustations. I can't even see my dr till it comes in and I give him the 600 dollars I owe him~then after I pay it, I have no idea if he will even take me back as his patient.
Thanks for letting me vent!! Patti in SC
