    My daughter applied for disability and was denied. She has an attorney now. I was wondering how hard is it to get disabilty benefits when you have FM/CFS?

    I was turned down every step of the way on my first claim even at the ALJ hearing but filed a second claim and got it pretty fast that time. My first claim was appealed at the federal level and I won so now I will go back before a judge on it to see if I can win there and get my backpay. The whole process from start to finish took me 3 1/2 years to get it, some get lucky and get it much faster but tell her to prepare to wait.
