no im just trying to pull some strings......but if anyone out there works for the ssa could please help slide my ssdi application through..............i have been trying for five years to get disability....and the rules clearly state that if you have a problem that will keep you from working for more than a year you should be getting ssdi....i have not been able to work since 2003......i did struggle through a couple jobs for awhile after that........but now i dont think i could handle pan handling as the hours i would have to keep wouldnt be very conducive to the work.....i dont want ssdi....I NEED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!and that has been a very hard thing for me to admit but i do.................and that being the case i will now do what ever it takes to get it......and that includes the hiring of a lawyer.....did i mention i dont like lawyers i think that they are the downfall of civilized civilization......i think they are the cause of fibromyalgia.............jk..................but i will hire one and not one of the companies that you see on the tv.....i want to find the working mans lawyer to represent me.....not someone born with a silver spoon in their mouth.......sorry for ranting but i cant do it anywhere else cuz nobody understand what i am going through like the folks on here....you are all wonderful people and deserve the best life has to offer.....................................................



best wishes john

John, I'm on social security disability.  I did it myself and it went through the first time...with no lawyers.  BUT, I had several doctors attest to my disabilities.  Do you have any other illnesses besides fibromyalgia?  Those do help in the final decision.  Fibromyalgia should be enough but you know how the government works.  
 
If I were you, I'd sit down with all the doctors you go to, explain what you are going through as far as your pain and ability to do things and that you want to apply, again, for SSD.  If you have a good rapport with your doctor, see if they think you are eligible for SSD.  If they agree, I'm sure something would be put in your records.  It was my doctor that suggested that I apply for SSD!  I have never thought of myself as disabled but I couldn't get any medical insurance company to cover me after my husband died.  If your symptoms have changed and worsened since you filled out the original paperwork, ask for new paperwork.  Be sure to answer the paperwork totally honestly.  I know how badly you need this but if you "fudge" on the paperwork they will notice it immediately and you will have lost your appeal again.  They see a lot of that, I'm sure, so be sure to answer honestly.  Mind you, I'm not suggesting you haven't been honest, but I'm giving the best advice I can to help you.  Have the doctors on your side and be sure to have them send the SSA your health records when they ask for them.  Be timely about seeing the doctors the SSA sends you to see.  This is what I did and I did receive my permanant disability.  I do have a major hearing problem to go along with the fibro, Crohn's, and diabetes, so I'm sure that played into their decision big time.  I hope this helps you.
