Yeah I have heard many times on this board how hard getting disability is to get. My sister just got disability because she has osteoarthritis in her knee. No Crohns!! I have osteoarthritis all over the place, Crohns Disease for over 30 years, Fibromyalgia and Inflammatory Arthritis. I am too scared to even try, because of how many have been turned down. What gets me is this, I love my sister very much, but if she lost weight I am sure her knee would get better. She is obese. Actually my whole family is, except me, thanks to Crohns. Isn't that sad, that someone who has knee problems because of her weight can get disability, but us with an incurable disease have to be practically be dead to get it. In case you havent noticed, yes I am bitter.
One tip I can give you is get a lawyer to help you and make sure you have your doctors on board with you. Good luck!
