Heres my situation. Maybe my doctor is right,that I will get better, but I really believe that we all know our own limitations, and I desperately need some means of income and soon. The department of social services had told me that I would never get SSI at this point in my life because I am only 29(30 in feb). Please believe me when I say, I wish I didnt have to be considering this, but I just don't think, with how bad my condition has been getting, that I will never again be able to hold down gainful employment. So how do I get SSI to approve me? Should I call an SSI attorney today and get the ball rolling myself? What do I do if my doctor won't cooperate as he has allready told me he won't. He just doesnt accept that some people with FMS/CFS cannot be rehabbed. Again, maybe he his right. I understand that under SSI, you are still allowed to work to a certain extent, which I would love, and that the SSI during those times would suppliment any working income, and be a safety net for the times when working is just not possible. That would be a dream come true. But, how do I get it if my doctor won't cooperate? If SSI says I'm too young?
