Hi Jag, glad to hear the shingles may be getting better, I have heard they are very painful.I have never had them, nor do I ever want to have them lol.
The application for SSD is mind boggling to say the least. It took me that long to do an application that was mailed to me. I do hope you have access to making a copy of the application that you submitted. You may have to reference back to those forms again later. It is common to be denied on the first go around with SSD, but do not give up.
