Hi I have been getting disability for 2 years now and my case was approved right away because I bombarded them with information. Get your medical records from every doctor you have seen and send copies to SSDI with your application. Tell them about the problems you have functioning in day to day life. Get your doctors and other health professionals to write letters about why you cannot work and keep copies of them. Then get on the phone and call SSDI every week to make sure your paper work is being looked at and passed along through the loops. You don't need a lawyer to do this. Be very pleasent to everyone you talk to on the phone and tell everyone of them about your pain and the drugs and the wheelchair you have to use to go places and how difficult it is getting dressed. Anything you can think of. I bugged them until they passed me. You have to work for this money it isn't free. But PN is real and it can cause you to have to give up working. And that is the reason for SSDI Disability !!
