Welcome to the Community MoBanc, you will find that their is a great support system here from all over, and many different illnesses I personally don't suffer from fibromyalgia but I do suffer from Sjogrens syndrome with heat and cold sensitivities, DDD, herniated and or bulging disc in my back, migraines, and osteoarthritis. I'm not from Canada but their are several on here who are who can answer that last question for you. I hope everything works out! We're here for you as we are one big goofy family who helps when someone fall's and we loves to laugh! Welcome to our fun loving diverse zany bunch! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰

Greetings, I'm in Canada and I am in the mist of a 2 year wait for odsp ... Not sure of cdpp ... Is there a union rep where you work? They maybe able to help.

I've finally gotten Ontario works until the decision is made at the odsp tribunal. It seems at least in Ontario the system is designed for denial.

Hoping someone else may have some answers for you.

Welcome and take care.

I live in Wisconsin, so can't answer disability for sure. I do know almost no one gets Social Security Disability here in the US on the first try. I was blessed to get mine on the first try. I had been let go because of missing too much work, & no idea when, if ever, could go back. My doctor had been telling me not to work & things were REALLY bad by the time I applied for Disability. I was diagnosed with fibro in late 1991 or early 1992, & have chronic back pain. Also had mini stroke, inability to concentrate, & a torn rotator cuff that had severely limited my ROM (range of motion).
