Social security and you after a disability. Group

I was disabled after a work related injury. I have been on SS for many years. In July I was reevaluated and claim denied. The doctors were not truthful with their reports. I am in the appeal mode now. I am suffereing a major anxiety issue and it has exasserbated fibromyalgia. I always just wanted my job as a nurse back but was told i could not do anything..... I am frustrated and in pain trying to get my head around all this..... I am going to therapy and on a new antidepressant which isn't helping too much and now i am in the wait game.
