God does indeed answer our prayers! I am so happy for you!!! Please, please, please take care of yourself and don't spend that first check all in one place ;-) This is wonderful news and it is so very rewarding to know that another person has been treated well by "the system". I know that you were denied the first time - and that is so sad to hear. I do believe that now that RSD is recognized by social security as long as we have our facts together and our doctors on board with us that the process won't be as difficult as it was in the past. The pioneers who were before us have paved the way for us. I am thankful to them on a regular basis. Once again... I am very happy for you!
PS - I'm doing the "happy dance" for you in my mind and heart - my foot's not letting me do it in practice but hey - I'm doing what I can ;-) HOORAY I can't wipe the smile off of my face... this is just wonderful news for you - I so wish we could all get together and have a party for you! The only better news for us all would be remission... and that's next...keep working and praying for it!!!
