Drawing Disability Funds?

Jul 27, 2015 5:12 AM

Has anyone been successful at being able to draw disability for fibromyalgia/related conditions? I haven't been able to work since 2010, and am blessed that I don't have to because hubby has great job.
Some family and friends keep telling me that I should apply for it because of all the years I worked in pain as a single mom. I heard it is hard to get disability payments approved. Any stories to share of success or process? (Sorry if this is a duplicate topic..I am new here) :-)

You can go on the website and type in can you get SSDI for fibromyalgia, but to my understanding you have to have other conditions with the fibromyalgia to be eligible.
