applying for SSDI

Good afternoon, all.
I am dx'd w/ RA & Fibromyalgia. Have just recently been approved by state teacher's retirement system for medical disability retirement (1st time - yeah!) & will begin to see somewhat reduced monthly retirement pay soon. 55years old & beginning to look at the SSDI application/approval/disapproval process & wonder if those of you who've been through this process have any general information about qualifications/disqualifiers and/or insights/tips on how best to present oneself & their case to cause a positive outcome. Currently not working & must be very restrictive about what, if anything, I might be able to do as chronic pain, disabling flares, etc. are a constant. Am overwhelmed by the information available online & hoping that there are suggestions as to which site offers the most comprehensive & up-to-date data as well as personal thoughts about how best to get started.
Thanks for your ideas & suggestions!
