I have been trying to wrap my head around filling out the pain form, function report and work history paperwork for the SSA. I am suppose to have it returned by the 18th but I haven't even started filling this stuff out. I look at it and immediately become extremely overwhelmed and anxious. I don't even know where or how to began telling these people how it feels to live with fibromyalgia and CFS. Has anyone been through this process? Would you give me some suggestions on what TO say and what NOT to say on these forms. If you can give specific statements to make that would be great. I'm going through a terrible flare right now. I'm so brain fogged that I can't even complete a sentence without stammering and trying to remember the point I intended to make. It's so awful for me right now. I don't want to mess this up and want SSA to get a clear and believe able representation of what my day to day life is like. I know I can't do a lot of stuff I use to do anymore but how do I state this accurately on these forms so that it's believable?
