    Hi all; today I applied for SSDI- I know it is a long road but where can I go anyways? My doctor told me no working/ and I really need more tests done- but I can't take it no more so I bit the big one and applied...

    It was scarry, but I was a good girl and took my Xanax and did the best I could do.

    wish me luck- I do have a lawyer I have already spoke with so we will just have to see.

    Thanks for all out there for the encouragement

    I'm thinking about doing it myself. I was fired on the 20th from my job of 8 yrs. I filed for unemployment last Fri. I know they will deny it and I will have to appeal and I dread it so much. I have a feeling it will be a big fight. But I'm thinking about contacting a SSD attorney and see if I can file for that while waiting and drawing unemployment. I think in some states you can but don't know about OK. Good luck to you. I'm just worried about how I'll live and pay bills while waiting.
