I just started this process as I have found myself in the exact same boat as you. I have been a medical assistant for over 20 years and I can not do it anymore. I have been looking for something else, but I have so many days that are difficult. I have not worked since March and we really need the extra income so since this is quite a long process, I started the ball rolling. I found a company on the National Fibromyalgia Website that will help get disability for you and they take out 25% of your first check and thats it. They do all the paperwork, obtain all the medical records and even file all the appeals. The are called Allsup and I have already splke with them and they know allabout Fibro and its symptoms. I found the lady I spoke to so helpful and kind. If you are interested, shoot me an e-mail and I will be happy to give you further details. Take care, and I hope you have a good day.
The back to school route actually sounds interesting... I'd almost concider it if there was a school nearby.

I have not worked at a (real) job in about 10 years. When I look at my social security statement it says that I do not have enough credits at this time to earn disability, My mom says that I should be able to draw off my husband. any one got a clue.
