    Be as honest as you can but do not offer any thing they dont ask. Try to have some one with you as some times with fibro you get confused at the questions they ask and beleive me if you answer wrong they will remember. I had my daughter go with me as Im also hearing impared that way they couldnt say I said this or that when I didnt there sneaky devls Good luck and dont be scared as that is what they want to scare you so you dont continue with a claim

    your advice (and bump) really helped - surprisingly, the examiner had heard of this DD before, so thats a good thing atleast! will let you know if i get it or not.
