I finally finished my online application for ssdi.  I didn't realize how long it would take to complete it.  I've been working on it for 3 days cause I have to get up to take breaks so often.  Felt like I was in high school again with all the essay questions.  I thought I was prepared with all of my doctor addresses and phone numbers plus everywhere I had worked for the last 15 yrs. but it was mind boggling.  Next step is to go to the social secuity office to drop off permission slips so they can get my medical records.  I hope this is all worth the time spent.
Shingles update:  It has been one week since I was diagnosed with shingles.  Finished my Valtrex prescription.  Am still having pain but the rash isn't as inflammed.  Be glad when I can shave my armpit again.

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.

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz
