I can't believe it! My Social Security Disability was approved 7 months after I first applied. No denial letters, no having to appeal. I am so relieved. I heard that everyone is denied the first time so I was in shock when I received the award letter yesterday.

Thanks, everyone. I am very relieved. They said they would review my condition in 5-7 years, so I don't even have to worry about that.

I am so thankful.

Hugs to all,
