That's about the nicest welcome I received from anyone at any new forum.
I most assuredly did my research on ALLSUP before deciding to go with them. The fact that the national Fibro Association recommended them, they are members in great standing with the BBB, their success rate percentages on the first and second attempts were rather higher than lawyers attempts impressed me to say the least.
I have extreme fibro, fibro fog, memory loss, sleep apnea, nerve termers, depression, and severe panic attacks.
But, I'm quite proactive in anything I do - I don't sit back and wait for stuff to happen than panic. I heard a few bad things about Allsup, which I did expect, and quite frankly, I had to do a lot of digging to find any negative press on them.
I was wondering if a lawyer might be a better idea since Allsup is all advocates and has no lawyers working for them. I'm just mulling this idea around and going to forums asking this question.
Its great being on this great forum and thank you again Patti for taking the time and greeting me in such a fashion. Really meant a lot to me with all the stuff I'm going thru with loosing jobs and filing for disability.
If anyone can offer advice, please do.
hi thee ox,
welcome to our little world of sanity. I am going through the process of filing for disability right now also. i live in utah and am going through some one out of state, i cant remember what state now that i brought it up but they are lawyers. the reason why i did it that way is cause i have heard to try to do it yourself is a living nightmare. you have someone that is helping you so i am sure you will do fine. i dont know if they told you it can be a long waiting game. i was told that it is 4-6 months before they let you know if you can get it and sometimes longer then that. if you dont get it through these guys find a lawyer to help you do the next step if the people that you are going through give up on you.
good luck and welcome again,
