dcham, I am so sorry this is happening to you. Good God, what an ordeal they have put you through!! For sure crohn's can be a disability. It sounds like you had some bad advice and help from a good SSI attorney. Sometimes if you contact your local congress person, they can expedite things for you. Have you tried this? They have advocates in their office for consumers. I live further south in Georgia and I know our rep, Jack Kingston has such people working for him. You should be able to testify in front of our lawmakers who are deciding today about
health care reform. It's a sin that in the USA, this is happening. I wish I had more advice. Will keep you in thoughts and prayers this will come through for you.
