My husband and I have been talking about this recently. I am just SO afraid to try because I know that with fibro, claims are often denied, at least the first time around. I do have a wonderful doctor that I know will help me with whatever paper work I need, but I want to do everything I can to make sure I can get this. I have done a little research online, and I found that a lot depends on your past work history. I haven't had a 'real' job in years that I paid SS tax so I don't know if this will hurt my case or not. I don't want to get rich and I know that will not happen, but we really need a little extra $$ every month to help cover bills and expenses. Things are REALLY tight lately, especially after the holidays between gifts, having days off unpaid (my husband), etc. I would greatly appreciate ANY tips or advice and would love to hear some success stories as well!
