Hi all

Remember me? I am back....
Well, my boss fired me back in September. I know it had to do with my condition, but no way to really prove it.

Anyways, I am still looking for work.... Ugh. I would rather try to get disability, but don't know if I can go very long without an income while I wait for a decision. I really think I could get approved, but I know can take a long time.

I am going into dr tomorrow for med follow up, hoping they can change it up as my meds now not helping much.
Ok, I post more tomorrow. Just glad to be back!

Hi Donna, welcome back to the forum. I have not been around much in the past week, internet problems and waiting on the repair man to come out and fix it. Hopefully by Monday it will be repaired, they have to dig up my old line in the back yard. I hope I can get this post done before getting booted off, lol.

To answer your question about SSD, no you cannot collect unemployment and file for SSD at the same time. When you receive unemployment you are stating that you are physically capable of working. It has to be one or the other, not both at the same time.

It is a lengthy process especially if you are denied, some have waited two years and longer to get a hearing before an ALJ. For those that get approved the first time around it can be 7 months or so before you even see the first check. Perhaps this will give some idea of the time frame. Also, your treating drs need to be onboard and support you about being disabled.

I hope your appt goes well with the dr and he gives you something that will lessen your pain. Let us know how it goes.
