Holy cow, Kaely
! Congratulations! But two and a half years, YIKES. I don't know how I'm going to stay afloat that long. I wish I knew how much they pay out in disability. I can't get a straight answer on that one. Someone told me all you get is $600 a month.
As soon as I get the rejection letter I am going straight to a lawyer. I am concerned they will drag the case on so they can get more pay, though. Did you feel yours did that?
I do have a doctor and a shrink on my side, and soon another doctor (I will find out next week). Fingers are crossed I get accepted, of course, but I am not too hopeful at this point.
I'm still confused about
the difference between SSDI and SSI is, but I have a long work record too (beyond 15 years, anyway), so I hope that helps.
For anyone else who was wondering about
the psych eval they send you to for depression, I got some great answers from Kaely and others over at another thread:www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=19&m=2522073&p=1
