    I was told it is ok for me to work the 18 hours I am working. I told the SS guy that I don't know how much longer I can keep working those 18, but it's ok as long as I don't go over a certain amount.

    I have a w/c settlement this week and depending on if I get any $$$$ out of it, that, too, has to be reported.

    I thought I would let everyone know. All that we know about SS and how our cases work helps everyone else here.

    I don't know how much longer I can work these 18 hours. I am paying settlement on several credit cards, some for medical reasons.

    But, as long as I can, I am allowed to work these hours.

    One day at a time.

    I am finding because pain in someone else can't be seen, people do have a hard time comprehending how a person living with pain is suffering. I don't think my kids believe me, but I don't care anymore, I need to do this for me.

    I hope you have searched on the CFS/FM board under SSDI, so you have plenty of info, in case you need it.
