I am honestly considering attempting to get on disability for my fibro. It may literally be my only chance at getting treatment if I do not get approved for health insurance through the state. It just sucks. I never wanted this. I never wanted any of this.
If you are currently on disability for fibro, how did you go about it? How long did it take?
I faught alone for 10 years a year ago when 2 years ago I had my accident at work that's when every thing started up.. I was diagnosed in sept I now have a lawyer on my case we had 4 nos now there taking me to court not sure date!!! Its living hell it takes u til your death bed to get it do when u pass money goes right back to state they don't care do u have to and u have to push and dig and get goooid lawyer, I been ready give up for years especially where I been over part year, I physically cannot work they denied me a paragraph stating that I have many health issues these can be helped with medication with time. Then sentence below stated " we are denying your claim cuz you can understand what ur being told, you can follow and understand directions, there for u can work no problem " denied now I wait for court date ... I'm praying cuz I have not often a date yet don't give up...
I had several diagnosis but the whole process took 3 1/2 years. I started with an attorney and had a few appeals before I ever saw a judge. It sucks because the entire time I had no income or insurance which makes it even harder to prove your case because every doctor visit I had was cash only.
