On Wednesday I received, in the mail, the medical report done by Social Security's doctor. I had questions and called the Disability Determination Person who said my case was sent back to Social Security for their action. She suggested I call my Social Security Case person. I reached her today and she said I was approved!!!!!! This was my first application (applied May 1st of this year)and I will have the 5 month waiting period plus they pay behind a month so my first check will be in November 2008. I am just very happy to have a little financial light at the end of the tunnel. I am thrilled and very pleased with the way my application was handled in my state of West Virginia although I was not impressed with the SS physical I received. I have multiple health problems including Charcot's Disease, fibromyalgia, Diabetes, spinal stenosis, osteo-arthritis,hypertention, and hypothyroid. The Disability Determination Person and SS Case Manager were both very professional. Physically I have had a hard week so this was wonderful news.
