Really struggling today so nervous about everything and disability isn’t coming through I been waiting for almost a year and I’m scared - if I don’t get it very soon I’ll lose so much and I’m not sure what I do

      Getting on disability shouldn't be this difficult and they need to improve the benefits.

      Tell me about it it took me almost 5 years to get mine the only saving grace was they had to pay me from the day I filled all the way up to the day I was finally approved I live in Maryland I don't know if it would be different if you live in another State I hope this gives you some hope and Good luck if you need to talk about it you can message me

      I’m so sorry, getting a lawyer worked for me

        @xoxobrett sigh it’s just so crazy why do we have to go so far as getting a lawyer and paying them as well it feels like a scam almost so many people are saying they needed a lawyer :/

          @LaurElizabeth there are lawyers who work specifically with people trying for problems like this. The only pay they take is a percentage of your first SSDI check (% depends on the lawyer), but you don’t pay anything otherwise, and if you aren’t approved, they don’t cost a cent. Maybe something to look into?

          @LaurElizabeth I completely agree, tbh I think they depend on people getting frustrated and giving up. Good luck to you! 🍀

        @Bre19 the whole system is so messed up it is very sad - I wish things were different for someone who is sick and in need of help - we all deserve better

      I know this feeling all too well, it felt like an eternity before mine finally came through. It took a second try with a disability lawyer to get everything settled. Hope everything comes around for you soon 🙏
