I have been reading several posts about Social Security benefits. Is it true that S.S. is now accepting FMS as a reputable disabling condition worthy of benefit acceptance? I have been able to work OFF AND ON (VERY SPORADICALLY), but have had to quit jobs due to flare-ups throughout the years. Just recently I was laid off due to a major flare-up and now I am receiving unemployment benefits. If I apply for SSDI will my unemployment status affect my chances? Or should I wait until I am done collecting unemployment benefits? Please someone, anyone, if you have info on this it would be very helpful. Thanks! God Bless!
