22 taking care of my great father

IM very new to this board. I am only 22 yrs old and its my father who has become disable.. Ive been taking care of him on my own now for about 2 yrs. He became disable dec 25 2006 christmas moring he had his 1st stroke. I hired a lawyer to help us recived ssi and or ssdi.. hoping that we would get it faster. That was a joke! I ended up doing all the work myself. but ne way i recived the letter that he was approved for both ssi and ssdi. 3 days later i got the entilement letter. But i was told that the amount of ssdi was to much for him to also recieve SSI.. Does he have to apply for SSI before he gets his SSDI.. Im so confused on this whole thing. And also i was told by the lawyer it could take 30-90 days before we heard back from them.. 3 days later i got the entilement letter.. is that what what could have taken 30-90 days? or does it take 30-90 days before he recieves a check? in the entilement letter it says he'll start recieven monthly benfits next month.. again soo confused! i can't get the lawyer on the phone for anything and im not afraid to call.. appeled 10 months ago then i found out you should have a decsion 3-5 months.. so i called the head office of SSI on july 10 i got the letter he was approved on july 14! I think if you show your not standing by and waiting it may push things along, i learned that. then the entitlement letter 3 days after that. Now im not sure which way to turn. I hope something happens soon.. i just got laid off and i can't find another.. i dont no what will happen if something doesn't happen quick. I hope someone can help me with these anwers cz im 22 and im going GRAY!!! thanks for letting my me vent any help would be great
