    I wish I could get on disability. With all of my issues, it is a major struggle to get through the day. I'm on meds all of the time and exhausted. However, if I want to eat I must work. I don't understand how people survive waiting for SSI to kick in.

    Hi Hatbox.

    I waited an entire 18 months before applying. It took another 2 years before I was approved. Yes, it takes a long time when you have CFIDS or FM.

    But, the best time to apply is now. And don't forget to read the posts of those who have won and how they went about it.

    Best wishes and God bless.
