    I just wanted to let everyone know that I was finally approved for SSDI and SSI. I received the letter yesterday. They don't yet know what the retroactive amount will be, but I am just so excited to know that the money is finally coming. During the time I was waiting, my car was reposessed and my daughter and I have had to depend totally on my parents. For a 30 year old, who was previously super-independent, that was a pretty tough pill to swallow (not to mention the numerous other pills...LOL).

    Yesterday was a particularly bad day for me in terms of the DD, so the news couldn't have come at a better time.

    You all have been so helpful to me. Even though I don't post often, I do read the posts and learn a great deal of helpful information, such as treatments and meds. Because of this, I wanted to share my good news with you.

    Also, AnnG, if you happen to read this, your post about CFS/Fibro awareness day made my day today.

    Thanks again and big hugs to all,

    Sorry you are feel bad, but I know getting approved for your SSI & SSDI helps you feel some better if only stress wise. I know it's stressful having to depend on others. Congratulation again!!!
