I was approved for "s/p Lyme disease", Chronic fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Depression and generalized Anxiety disorder. I think the "s/p" stands for something like "symptoms post Lyme disease" - or some other stupid acronym.................. but, it was my 3rd try at Medicare SSDI and I did hire a lawyer.... the good news was that I did NOT have to go to court. The Judge just approved it because I had over 400 pages of documentation... and the "gov't" only had 2 pages. She said at some point it's up to the gov't to prove that I'm NOT disabled.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Meade
