    There doesn't seem to be any threads in this topic. So I thought I would start one. :)

    I am homebound with cfs/me. I'm creating a free online guide to Social Security Disability in the US. It is a work in progress. Suggestions welcome.

    This guide is designed for anyone with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, affectionately known as CFS/ME, or the more easily-pronounceable Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

    If none of those words look familiar to you, don’t worry. Most of this guide will work just fine for other disabilities, too.

    Step One: Buckle Your Seat Belts
    Step Two: Find The Right Doc
    Step Three: Talk To Your Doc
    Step Four: Document Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
    Step Five: Document Other Conditions
    Step Six: Document Medical Evidence
    Step Seven: Document Functioning
    Step Eight: Prep Forms & Letters
    Step Nine: Visit The Social Security Doc
    Step Ten: Play The Records Game
    Just In Case That Was Not Enough To Read
