    Are you working now? If long since you stopped? Usually there is a "waiting period" where you are unemployed before you can apply.

    Call your local Social Security office and ask these questions. I would apply ASAP. With the combination of FM/OA/Dep&Anx - as long as you have the support of your doctors - you should qualify.
