I found out from my lawyer 's office today that she called the Social Security Administration to get an update on my application for disability. SSA let her know that I was approved!! I only applied this past June, and waiting has been hard, as well as going through most of my savings while not working. So, no appeals, no doctor exams, and no hearing! Such a weight lifted off my shoulders. Such an immense blessing!

I thought so too, NJ Angel! I was shocked! You hear such horror stories about denials and appeals and hearings. And while I'm grateful about getting it so fast, I feel so badly for others who wait years to be approved. Anyway, for me, this week, I am blessed and thank God for this. ☺️

Crankypants, what wonderful news!!! Now you can rest a bit easier knowing that the battle of the disability approval is over and that with persistence, you've won!! I couldn't be happier for you. I hope that this is a trend for the rest of my peeps that are still fighting the battle and waiting for their approvals. Sending you {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that this helps to make things less stressful for you moving forward.πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š

Wow! That was extremely fast! Congrats! Took me 4 yrs, 2 denials and a hearing in front of a judge who yelled at social security for wasting everyone's time and not approving my case yrs ago. I liked that judge. He apologized to me on the record for the sloppy way that social security handled my case. He said, my God people, the woman has to use a walker and can't stand up straight! God help me if something ever happens to me!
