Hi:

I am in the process of waiting for a hearing date. My lawyer sent me the file from disability to review and I was quite dissapointed!

The Disability Psych review said that I had incurabe depression due to my chronic illness...OK...I can deal with that.

Disability reviewers have totally focused on the depression and make no reference to the other Autoimmune issues (Lupus, APS, Sjogrens, Reynuards) or the Fibromyalgia...So of course I can work...DUH

I spoke to my Dr today about this and asked if I should think about trying to work...HE SAID...No hold off a bit, they don't have my records. I will call the laywer.

I was surprised, so I will wait some more....

It is a long waiting game all too often...

But the good news is that your doctor will be actively working on your behalf, that has to do some good. It does always amaze me that we are required to submit things back to them within 10 days or so... and they can take months to years to respond back. Arggh.

Hang in there... hopefully it won't be too much longer!
