    that is wonderful. It is awful though how long we must wait. I was just approved on June 3rd, at hearing. But waited almost 2 years before all that. Take care of yourself.

    That's wonderful, and sounds like they told you at the hearing too? that has to relieve some stress.

    It can take about 2 months or less. Most I know have gotten at least one check within a few weeks... and can arrive in the form of several checks, depending on your case.

    I hope you get yours sooner than later!

    Congratulations! It took me 14 months to get my disability. But i was only 38 and at the time back problems werent on the "list". I had to contact my state representative bc i was at the bottom of the barrel financially. I had my ck in 2 wks. Maybe it was just a coincidence...maybe not. I just know he asked me to lunch to talk to me and said hed do whatever he could to help. I believe with all my heart he did just that. Hope you get your check soon!

    Glad to hear the good news.

    I don't know much about finance, but maybe it would help get a loan
    if you showed the lender the news of your award.

    Congratulatinos Willruthie!

    I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis almost 10 years ago, then FM about 5 years ago. On a side note - I've had 3 nervous breakdowns requiring hospitalization in the last 20 years.

    My guess - I would get disability based on my psychiatric history also.

    I haven't rec'd any money yet. My "rep" told me it could take a couple of weeks to a month. I sure know what you mean by being at the end of our rope, so hang on tight. Hopefully you will get your money soon. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
