Hey Kibbles & all of my Fibro Fam,
I'm in the same boat as Gonuts, I'm on unemployment at the moment and so thankful that there's an extension of benefits right now. But deep in my heart I don't think going back to work is going to be a realistic expectation. So I will probably apply if I can't find a "good paying" (yah riiight) part time job. But either way SSDI is most likely my direction.
One thing that's good about SSDI is that you can still work but you can only earn a limited amount .. I think its like $900 a month. I'd really like to find a little something to do and I don't want to be a 'burden' to society or my family.
Does anyone think it's best to start with an Attorney or not??
I applied 10 years ago, when I had Lyme, CFS, Carpal Tunnel & back problems. They denied me and I gave up, but now, with Fibro I REALLY think I have no choice.
