Yes, I have filed for Soc. Sec. Disability and it has not been fun. I have been denied twice now and the next step is hiring a lawyer. I'm on the home stretch. I filed back in June, and it has been a very long process. I have been fortunate to have good people helping me with this. They have a person through the county I live in that has guided me through the whole process. I have been out of work since last May.
I will be referred to a lawyer that goes by your income (HA! what income!?) Have had to get help through the county/state just to live. I don't know how I have made it this far, but I have. I keep telling myself the battle with Soc. Sec. is almost over, win or lose and I can do this! I have broken down a few times from being so overwhelmed. I would start with calling Soc. Sec. and ask questions. They have been helpful also.
Let us know what you decide.
