    On your first time filing for disabilty did you list all of your smyptoms and how they effect your life?

    I feel like I have more then a page of things and am wondering if we are suppose to list them all the first time we file? When I looked at the form on the internet it sure didn't look like much room.

    I read back and it sounds like I've already eccepted the fact that I will be turned down the first time. lol

    Thanks, Twinkles

    If you are referring to the first form you receive, if
    you need more room I'd just add another sheet to the SSA
    form. The SSA offic e has numerous booklets available
    that explain in plain "American" the procedure etc.
    May want to look at WWW. NOLO. Com for Law info. that you
    can buy or find at your local library.

    I'm a fourth gen. Californian but still like to go up
    on road trips and toss my empty beer bottles and trash
    on your highways. They don't let us do it here. Think
    thats why so many Californians move up to Oregon! My
    Daughter did.

    Will pass the message onto Mr. Hatfield next time I see him. lol

    Next time you come up I'll let you have my cans piled high on my back porch to throw out too!! lol I'm to pooped to take them in..

    Seriously sometimes it's a hassle taking the cans in... you feel guilty for not doing it...after all...5 cents on the bottle.... and reality says....there's Twinks gas money now that I'm not working..:)

    Thanks for the info on the disability...I'll check those places out.

    Just don't let them discourage you. That's part of their
    plan!! I try to reply to people with your similar concerns
    if I feel I can help. There are other people on this
    Board who are much more knowlegable than I and they us-
    ually can add much to inquiries! Weekends can be rather
    slow sometimes on the Board so best to do weekdays for
    best results.

    Please take care. I'll stop by to pickup those cans etc.
    on my way thru to Portland!
