Lately I’ve been pondering whether I should try to apply for disability or not. One part of me thinks that well I’m impacted daily and it debilitates me from doing many things such as chores, going to work, exercising, keeping plans and functioning in general. But I have heard so many stories about getting denied and going through appeals and with migraine just really been looked at as a “real” disability in 2019 from the awesome work at Headache on the Hill, I wonder is now the time I try to do this or should I keep pushing myself to work and I hate to say it but suffer through the day hoping I will be able to drive home because of sensitivity to light/blurred vision, tolerate the loud noises, concentrate, access my working memory. Cognitively I may be doing myself a disservice and worry if I keep pushing it will make things worse?!
Any words of advice/experience would be helpful!
