I have a lawyer and he had gotten the deniuel too. one of the things they said was "that since I can go to the store once a week and can cook that I'm not disabled"!! anyway the lawyer said most everyone has to go thru all the bull s**it of sending in the forms, waiting, waiting, waiting...He said he was sending the new papers off to SSI and that this will be to get to see the judge. well he said it might take 18 months I almost fainted. anyone else have to wait this long?? I am seeing my Rheumy to get a Chronic Fatigue "test" but I ant see him until Dec. 1st- I hate to see this but if my mom hadnt died in April and left me a few pennies , I'd be really panicking. thanks to anyone answering!
