Hey Guys, My disability has been approved. I filed last June 2006 just got it this March 2007. Now don't need to worry seeing my rheumatologist frequently. I am thrilled.

Oh Yeah!!!! I am so excited for you! That's a fairly fast decision. I still can't understand why some get it so quickly, while others takes years.

I'm glad it was fast for you.

Congratulations! My, that was fast! It took me two years of repeated denials, and then a court date with a judge to get mine! I used to help others get Disability when I was a social worker, and it never made sense as to why some got it quickly & others had to wait years! Crazy system! So glad for you!

I'm glad for you, too! :D Sure feel a sense of accomplishment when that's over, eh?
Had it not been for my rheumatologist, I may not have done it when I did... I have her to thank :rolleyes:

Congratulations!

Thanks to ya'll reply. I think that's why I got it fast, depends on the lawyer holding your case and especially the full support of your physician/specialist. It is on the doctor I believe. Need a lot of patience too and faith. We got to remember patience is a virtue.

For those who still getting disability, goodluck!

Graywolf ;)
