    I received a letter from SSD saying the Judge found me fully disabled .He went back to 3/15/03 for date of disability. It has been a long wait and probabely will be a few more months before I see any money, really dont know how long it will take. Thanks to all who encouraged me and prayed for me!! God Bless You

    Wow...since 2003! God bless you for not giving up. It gives me hope. What was your dx and where do you live?

    Enjoy the relief of having the needed income.

    I can only imagine the relief that you're feeling right now. I'm fighting them right now, and this gives me hope that perhaps I can win.

    What is your diagnosis?

    It's always so nice to read that Someone, got their Disabilty ,
    Sorry it took so long, and your check should be coming soon, mine came in 2 weeks, after the Lawyer was paid, I had a nice sum, to help me get back on my feet,

    Good for YOU.

    congratulations camp, i am so happy and relieved for you!! what a long struggle, i am glad it is finally over for you!
    when i finally got approved last year, it went back to feb of 03, i had 10% taken out for taxes, so i didn't owe a big sum at tax time, was lucky not to have to pay it and got it all back at the end of the year, but nice to know that they had it IN CASE! take a good relaxing vacation now, the stress of the whole process is overwhelming, you sure deserve a break and a rest--enjoy it!!--L

    I will be praying for you this friday and wishing you the best! Hang in there, you see how long it took me. I know its very nerve wrecking and stress levels really climb but it will be over before you know it. I fretted for weeks before my hearing its hard not to. Anyway keep us posted!!!

    First of all, Congrats! I'm so excited that we're seeing all of these favorable results for our friends on this board. It seemed like an awfully long dry spell with no one getting SSDI but it's getting better now.

    I'm so happy for you! You must be so relieved! I filed for disability exactly a year ago (May 30th, 2007) and won my benefits November, 2007. It only took me 6 months. I was lucky. I'm also so glad to see so many here getting approved lately. Maybe SS is finally seeing that we do indeed have disabiling problems that prevent us from working. Good for you!!!!

    It takes a lot of courage to continue to fight for five years, congratulations, you have worked hard for this. You should have a nice back pay sum.

    I know your success will give hope to others still in the process.

    Best of luck to Zoey and Deb, also. There have been many who have won lately, hope to be adding you to the list soon.
