Congratulations! I was also approved 1st try! I was very relieved not only for the income but because I had been turned down for Health Insurance, well actually, I could get Insurance but with a disclaimer on my neck and a $1500 premium (that was 5 yrs. ago I shudder to think what the premium would be now). I was so thankful when Medicare kicked in!
Its a double edged sword, happy you were approved but then reality that you are really Disabled!
