Hi Merfy5!

And welcome. Many people on the forum are on SSI disability. I am about to file also so maybe we can go thru it together. There are folks here who are very willing to share how it went. When you read stories of people's trials with the SS department just remember that the ones that worked out easy and quick never post. Most of the people who post on the internet do so because they are unhappy about the process and/or outcome. So keep in mind that just because someone else lost their case, that doesn't mean that either you nor I will.
