Hey there- Wow- you have a lot on your plate! Just a word about
disability- I used to work doing the paperwork for those claims where I live. Make sure you talk to your MD's about
it and have them on board. With their support (it sounds silly but some MD's never know that their pt.'s are filing for disability and just send sparse notes, or nothing at all which are no help at all- and often times leads to a denial) you stand a much better chance of being awarded. Good luck. You know, if Western medicine has failed you, I suggest at least trying (if you haven't already) Eastern medicine- homeopathic meds or acupuncture, massage, gentle exerise and rest of course. I know this costs money that most of us don't have. . . However, I always say check with your MD's first before trying any of that as some people do have adverse reactions, etc. I wish I had more to offer. Hopefully others will. Have a good night.
