Question How long did it take you to receive social security disability benefits?

Hello all,

I can't go on working anymore. My health won't allow it. I am curious for people with the diagnosis of fibromyalgia and CFS how long it took you to finally get social security disablity benefits. I'm terrified because I don't know how we are going to survive while waiting. My husband does not make enough money to pay the rent, utilities, gas for the car, medical expenses and food however the government says he makes to much for any of their help. Can you please tell me how long it took for you? Also, if you can give me any tips to help my case or how you were able to survive while waiting I'd greatly appreciate it.

Gratefully Yours,

Sponsors Lightbulb

Just read your post, and unfortunately it's a long process. I've been denied twice, and waiting for a court appearance. It's been almost a yr now.
