has anyone in washington gotten ssd successfully? please tell me about it. jaquie
Ouch, I am in the second phase of SSD. I have been denied once and appealed, app. 1 1/2 months ago. Just got a letter saying I have an appt. with a clinical psychology for a mental exam. I have cognitive disorders bad and have a hard time with it. These are my symptoms.
chronic head and neck and shoulder pain 24/7 (bad)
frozen shoulder (starting physical therapy tues.)
have hard time sleeping
tendonitis in shoulders
other joint pain
pain all over my body
feet hurt alot of the times
hard time in the mornings
sore throats at times
body aches alot
body itches alot
lightheadedness at times
pain in hands and wrists
pain in hips and knees
SOME of these are documented some aren't. I went to an acupunturist and naturopath for awhile, chiro., and reg. DR. My Dr. is one of those that doesn't know alot about Fibro though she has treated me for the symptoms. I know they go mostly by what dr.s and specialist say and don't believe a word you say. Jaquie
I realized you were the one that answered back with my first ssd ? about mental exam. Thank you. so you are from Wa. state? How long did it take for you to get SSD?
Hi boy is it nerve racking. Remember its not what you have its more about how able bodied you are. Even people with cancer I've seen not miss more then a few days of work.
Make sure your doc is saying things that you can't do.
I'm not in Wa but in Ca and I got mine the 1st try with only CFS and I never went in to SS. All done on the phone so this can happen to you too!
I was just 100% honest.
I am on my third try awaiting hearing which takes up to two years! I to am flustrated with the system!
