      Thank you everyone. I'm waiting to see the rheumatologist. I've heard that will help my case. I still have to work when I can even though I feel like I can't stand up straight at the end of my shift. I'm putting a lot of pressure of my doctors to get the paperwork completed. I'll let you all know how it goes.

      It took me 8 years, but I was only 39 when I first applied Andy age worked against me. My SSDI insurance ran out because I couldn't work for so long. I got SSI right away this last time I applied. They sent me to their doctors because my records weren't enough. I tried a representative and then a lawyer and end up getting it myself. My suggestions would to be make sure your doctors are on board and that they document everything. I was told you need to have a pressure point check at every visit. My doc stopped doing it because it hurt so bad. Neither of us knew I needed it. Find a good reputable lawyer. They take their fees out of your settlement payments (back pay from when you first applied).

        @TabbysMom yeah, I have a lawyer, but SS is now taking up to 6 - 10 months. I'm so depressed, I'm in such pain, I don't feel I can work anymore, therefore I'm broke and my life seems hopeless.

          @diamondmama omg! I am so sorry! Mine took awhile but I don't believe it took that long. May The Great Spirit be with you & everyone struggling so hard. May speed be yours.

        @TabbysMom how long did it take? And was it through the military?

          @diamondmama it took a few months. Its been years ago. I had a really good lawyer. I also think it was because FMS was so new. Was not military. Find you a good lawyer. Most will talk to you for free & I believe they don't charge you. Just take their fee out after you win. But that was years ago! I so could be wrong.
