    Hi there,

    If you were to ad on the most recent dx I have been given of Livido Reticularis a month ago................ along with the already dx'd of Chronic Hepetitis C, Brachial Plexus Lesions(also known as Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Brachial Plexus Entrapment), Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, Coccydynia, Sjogren's Syndrome, Severe depression, Social Anxiety/Panic Disorder.....

    I have all but the letter "Q" and the letter "W" to fill up my "ABC"s.

    I won my SSDI hearing for my Hep C, he only approved it dating back to when I was DX'd with it back in Nov of Nov '04 and not from when I filed in Feb of '04.

    I was pleased and miffed at the same time. Pleased that I was approved and miffed that he did not take it back further.

    Hi Carole,

    Congrats on the SSDI! Did you have to apply more than one time? Did you use an attorney? Is the documentation mostly from your doctor or did they need signed job paperwork too? You never know when I might need those answers for future reference.

    I'm thinking we should put the dx abbreviations after our name like degrees. Maybe the MDs would take us more seriously. I bet the psychiatrists would for sure! We would probably win a Nobel prize or something. I could use the money.

    Nice to hear from you!
