Hi again Thee...
My sister is on SSDI, she tried doing it herself but after 4 years of being denied she finally got a lawyer. I'm thinking that if I apply I'll get a lawyer right off the bat. I had applied about 10 years ago and got denied.. ironically I got a job right about the same time. Anyway, when I was denied I immediately went to a lawyer and was informed (by the lawyer), that I should try to hold out till I was 50 yrs old. I'm 51 now and have every intention of trying again.
By the way.. my sister heard the over 50 years old routine too.
I don't know how old you are.. but that seems to make a difference for some reason.
Again, the best of luck to you .. I hope you can find a good lawyer soon!! Its so hard to have Fibro and try to work a normal job, let alone live a normal life.. I truly feel your pain.
Keep in touch!! And keep posting!!
