Hi,

There is a now a link on the Disability Resources page of this site about the
Revised Medical Criteria for Evaluating Immune System Disorders: Final Rule from Social Security Administration.

Revised Medical Criteria for Evaluating Immune System Disorders; Final rule. Social Security Administration. March 18, 2008.

Hopefully, it will give you guys hope that are waiting for final decisions or for those who have recently applied or are thinking of it.

Nan

Nan:

Thank you so much for this information. I am sitting here crying that finally, finally, they are starting to recognize and understand that we exist.

I just sent the link to two other friends who share my condition.

Thank you again, you just lightened quite a load in my mind.
