    yes people with fm and me/cfs are discriminated against. it is appalling. many doctors (rheumatologists) wont see me because i have fm.

    I know what you mean. I am disabled by CFS but I only got SSDI due to having Bipolar Disorder, which is ironic, because the Bipolar does not disable me, the CFS does. It's just hard to prove you have CFS since it is a diagnosis of exclusion. In my case all my labs tests came back normal. I really hope you get justice on the day of your hearing. Do you have a lawyer?

    Been trying for two years...still waiting to get scheduled for a hearing. The answer I keep getting is that I'm not "disabled enough"! What does that even mean? So want to tell them, "Sure, I can work...if you find me a job where I only go in on my good days. And by the way, you might want to hire a psychic to tell me when I'll have my next good day. And, of course, if I exert myself, well...goodbye good day!"
