Social security disability

  • By Sheri Z

    Anyone considering applying for SSD don’t give up hope. I applied in September and received a letter of eligibility two months later. No attorney involved. The information I received from this wonderful site helped me more than anything on what and how to complete the forms. Concentrate on how your migraine disease effects your ability to work and even so far as completing every day tasks.
    Take care,

    Thanks for that info Sheri! I didn’t think they would even look at Migraine, a lo of people seem to think it’s “just a headache”.

    Regards,

    Wow, Colleen, I am so sorry to hear of your situation. That is extreme. I always feel like no one is looking in ‘the right place’ when it comes to my migraines. In the throes of a bad one all I can think is, ‘This cannot be normal’. I haven’t been able to breathe through my nose in God knows how long, and most, but not all of the headaches seem to originate in my sinuses. Lately I’ve noticed constant photo-sensitivity headache or not. This whole thing is so confusing and I’m convinced that the MDs just take shots in the dark. I have been referred to a neurologist, finally. Deep down I already know that’s not going give any answers, but will cost a lot of money
    Stay strong, Colleen, don’t lose hope. You never know when something good may come in the form of better treatment for your situation. I’ll keep you in my prayers, and hope the best.

    Warm Regards,

    Caroline
