START the process NOW for ssdi so you can expect to try to get it in 2-3 years from now, as that is how long it usually takes for peeps to collect it as they fight you like mad especially sicne you are 42.
25-50 pounds? sheesh taht would kill me, i cant do lots of typing wither as i have carpul tunnel in both wrists from repetitive tasks office work. plus i have FMS and bad back, neck etc, i had to wait 2.5 yrs before i got ssdi. they bascially told me there is nothing i can do proffessionally with all my health issues and meds i take. here;s the deal how can you drive to and from work if you are on pain meds? did you know in most states this is a dui crime and you can be fined and have your liscense taken away?

I also have COPD, Addisons Disease, Osterarthritis, Osterporosis, Acid Reflux (GERD).Depression, (why I have depression, I'll never know). And just all over feel like crap.
I think no one likes this process. It is emotionally & physically draining...but what can ya do if you cannot support yourself due to disease?
I agree with the panel here...start the initial process now.
I'm in the appeal process now, sent my appeal in February! Haven't heard anything yet.
Now THEY REALLY DON'T WANT TO APPROVE ME! I know they're thinking..."she's 25!...that's 60 years of shellin' out money!".
No one wants to work & have there career more than I do, and it's heartbreaking to have worked so hard your whole life to achieve a goal and not be able to thrive in it...but I never expected this to get THIS bad. I hope I do not have to be on SSDI my whole life....but until then, what has to be done needs to be done.
I would start the process now definitely.
