No, in fact they will go as far back as 10 years and apply the tax credit accordingly- money in your pocket. When my application for CPP was approved I received a retroactive payment as well as future monthly payments. I'm not sure what your financial situation is like but considering how much money we have to spend out of pocket for diagnosis and treatment...we are definitely entitled to these supports. I was finally diagnosed in Nov. 2017 after 9 years and am receiving treatment (antibiotic, antiviral........) I'm hoping that I will be able to return to work too. I'm only 46. I may have to change careers but I'm ok with that. In the mean time I'm grateful to be receiving LTD, CPP dis., and eventually the tax credit. How long have you been sick? I was previously diagnosed with CFS.
Thank you so much. I will go to my Dr. and discuss with her. I'm assuming she has to say I'm not able to work....on the application form.
Did you use CFS as your diagnosis? I will have to use Lyme disease as I was never diagnosed with anything else...that diagnosis may not 'fly'.
Ive been sick since 2013...diagnosed via Igenex in 2014. But, Igenex isn't recognized here...I may have difficulty with that part of it.
Ugh - you had 9 years of a misdiagnosis....so sorry...that must have been h-ll.
