I had SSDI when I lived in North Carolina. I had it for five years. Once that time was closing....I received a letter from the state I was in...Texas and I had to go and see one of their doctors, fill out some paperwork, etc. He saw me for 15 minutes, and kicked me off SSDI. He as far as I'm concerned, doomed me. I've been working almost 5 years now. I have worked since I was 15 years old, except for those 5 years. My fibro has gotten worse in the last 2 years. It's very bad. I wish someone would tell me how long they've gone on SSDI.
