Link for SSID Secrets to win appeals ~
Applying for social security disability and SSI benefits, with or without an advocate can be difficult due to how long a claim may take and the high chance of being denied. But those who are denied disability can win benefits by utilizing the appeals process. To increase the chances of winning, applicants should learn about the system and file an appeal when a claim is denied.

congrats on the diability!!! i am considering this myself for my family's sake.. havent worked in 4 years...i spent the 1'st two  in denial after my boss shut the practice down...kept looking for work i couldnt find..all the while i continued to feel worse... and then my son got diagnosed and was suffering symptoms, and ended up needing  the surgery and i was focusing on him...all the while i hve given up on dumb dumb doctors who arent knowlegable or doing anything to help me..and dot socument anyuthing the way it happens or is said...one time i went in...was walkin funny, hesaid my gait ws off and yet i his all to brief, noninformative dictation  he states the words "gait-normal"?? you can see why i gave up on the whole thing..thank God for finding a good pediatric for my son..but as an adult...it seems hopeless...  i fear it may be too late, but i know that i cannot physically do my job in orthopedics and radiology anymore.very physica,,and i never know from one day to the next  how well i will be functioning or how reliable i will be??? who helped you with your disability and what did you say???  helpppp!!

I'm so happy for you.  I am not so fortunate.  I went to my hearing and I was denied, but I had a judge that only approved 8 out of 76 cases so I am hoping and praying that this appeal will work.  They sent me a letter saying this process can take up to a year and it has already been a yr and a half, but patience is the key I guess.  I just take one day at a time and hoping for a better tomorrow.
Linda :)

Thanks.. so if these things take a year.. how do you live until then? Good Lord... we just filed bankruptcy (with well over 50k in medical bills and that is WITH insurance and exhausting our savings to try to prevent it), will be losing the house we are in, my husband is a seasonal worker for the first time ever at his job and will be having to use unemployment for 2 months.. I am overwhelmed. I have worked since I was 15 and have my fancy bachelors in nursing degree I busted my tail to get and never would have thought I would be here right now. I have always worked so hard and feel like a failure now because of all of this. My daughter is a senior in HS.. can't afford any of what she will wants like pictures or anything and now she too is having chiari symptoms and something going on in her abdomen they can't figure out. I'm trying to figure out why God seems to hate me right now when I have done so much to help other people. Sorry for the rant but I am tearing my hair out right now.

  I can relate as I had been earning a wage since I was 11...babysitting, but I was getting paid and have worked ever since...so it is hard to not be able to do it .....we live on my DH's income which is hit and miss as he is self employed...we are lucky in that out house was paid off b4 all this happened.

My DD has to pay off all her student loans as I can not longer help her...but she is doing well for herself so when she can she has helped me out....

One thing u may want to try is to do fund raising...there are sites on FB and others that u can set up for medical and living expenses....

I never had to do it...my DH has found ways to cut back on expenses and I no longer drive so no need for gas ....lunches....so it is a savings....

God does not hate u, he is helping u thru even if u do not feel him.....he would never abandon u in a time of trials.

Keep the faith, and know u r not alone <3 ((hugs))

I hear you.   My medical bills are outrageous.  Dx'd and decompressed in 08 and have been a testing guinea pig since.   Doctors keep saying by the book you should be cured.   They test me for something and put normal on it because it didn't show what they thought but they don't put any footnotes in there saying what happened.  Examples.   EMG showed no carpel tunnel but didn't show that I have continued numbness, pins and needles, feeling of arms and legs, hands and feet went to sleep.    Had a tilt table test and at 5 mins I had tremor and at 27 mins had an episode the nurse said she had never seen that looked like a seizure...but the report said normal for cardiac.     My marriage fell apart, haven't finalized divorce because of insurance.   Was short a few working credit hours for disability so they sent me down the SSI road.   Been denied a few times and waiting for my hearing.    Got the letter saying could be 20 days up to a year.

Horrible! And so very scary! I just had surgery to fix my patch so hoping I can get back within the next month or 2. If not I don't know what will happen... But thanks for the info and the support and I hope you find relief soon!
