The Nightmare that is SSDI

Getting disability can be a nightmare! So many abuse the system, yet those of us with the “but you look so good” chronic diseases often get denied time and time again.
I was denied here in NY. I had to use a disability lawyer and give up 20% of my back pay, and adding salt to the wound, I had to pay $500 to my neurologist for a letter stating my disability. The letter had numerous errors which I had to go over with his office manager despite my failing eyesight and cognitive impairment. Yet, stress as we know, is not good for people that suffer from MS!
