Astroman is correct, have your att. stress in the case that you are unable to concentrate, complete tasks, do repetitive work, that you have physical stability issues(falling down, off balance?)

The llmd or a gen. prac. should be able to write a report expressing this even if they don't want to fill out disability paperwork and it could be used to present your case.

Hi Gilmore,

I am wondering if you were able to get help from an MD?

I've been out of work for 6 months and my SDI was turned down by a private insurer. I requested the case file and found out that it was largely because of scrappy notes provided by my dr.

I am writing because I can't stress how important it is to get have your Dr. painstakingly fill out all paperwork. And as folks mentioned above, he/she will need to go into meticulous, concrete detail about why you cannot perform your position.

I myself am looking for an attorney to help with my appeal, but I haven't found anyone willing to as it is only SDI (low payoff) and I hope to be able to return to work in the next few months.

Hi gravitas - welcome to our community.


Thanks for posting the tips on filling out the paperwork for disability.

Do you have lyme disease?

Hi girlie

Yes, I do. I was diagnosed last summer - symptoms started several years before that.
I'm on doxy + herbal tinctures. Also dealing with candida, MTHFR mutation, thryroidectomy.
