Has anyone applied for and won SSD/SSI?

I was just wandering if anyone has won their SS case. I've just been denied and will have to appeal. Any help would be great especially if you could share your experience. At this point I'm OCDing over this and can't stop thinking about it.

Hi, DawnieD,
I'm sorry to hear that our government is giving you such anxiety. I qualified for SSD by filling out all the information on their questionaire going way back to the beginning when I was a teenager (I'm 55 now). I included every therapist and every hospitalization. My doctor was great about doing his part since we go back more than twelve years.
Don't give up. Appeal the decision and don't take no for an answer.

You have 60 days from the time denied. Get an atty who specializes in Social Security. Go to [url][/url] and you can get an atty in your area. I was denied in Feb and waiting hearing. My atty does all the work.

Well, the wife was ok'ed on the first try. No Attor & no appeal.
She was in a sad shape at the time. i recall the host of meds, the hosp stays & getting info from the dr's was like pulling teeth.
God Bless
