    Call your doc and anyone else who is involved and get those documents ASAP! Believe me, you'll need all the ammunition you can get for SSD! I have been turned down 2 x's now and am getting ready to go before the judge.

    I had to find a psychologist (after a TERRIBLE incident with another 'psychologist'!) whom I saw for several months. I did this just so he could see how bad I was, and know that I needed his documentation for SSD. He knew right up front that I was there for that, as well as the depression.

    I also found a rheumatologist who believes in fibro, saw him for several months and had him fill out a form for me. My lawyer says it all looks really good now, but you can never tell, believe me!!

    Do whatever you have to do to get ALL your symptoms, illnesses, diagnoses DOCUMENTED, or your case will be thrown out in a heartbeat. Good luck! PG
