Hi Renee, I'm sorry you are going thru all of this. I have heard so much about people having problems with getting disability that are so sick it's frustrating. It's hard for me to beleive that they are still fighting for it.
So telling you this is almost embarassing to me. When I applied for disability they actually took my info over the phone. I got a letter a couple weeks later saying they wanted me to see their doctor. I had an appt a few weeks later spent 15 to 20 mins. with the doctor. He said "we'll get you some help. A few days later I got a call. from SSD telling me i was approved. I didn't get any back pay because it was exactly 6 months . I guess they hold on to the first 6 months. Next thing I knew I had my first check. There was never a court never a judge nothing like that. I was very blessed.
So yes I guess you need to expect the worst and hope for the best. but I just wanted to share that with you that there is hope the it won't take as long as most times. Just make sure you have all your papers and discuss with your doctors make sure your on the right page with them.
Hang in there a never give up.
keep us informed there are alot of people here that will get you through the process
