My Dr. wants me to go on SSD because the DD is so hard for me to handle as I am sure it is for everyone out there. The depression with the DD would allow me to recieve disability,brain fog , the fatique with this is unbelieveable.Durning my last flare up, which was the worse one I ever had, I looked in to SSD. I had forms sent out and everything. They would allow me $1084.00 a month to live on once it goes through and it can take up to 18 months to get started. No money in between. So what do you do in the mean time. I have been fighting and not letting it win, but what do you do when you can't work and your income is the only income in the house? Any suggestions?
