Well I just got the greatesst Christmas present today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I was approved for my SS disability the first time . I did it all my own ( well Moms prayers helped Im sure) but i was shocked. I had an attorney on the backburner so to speak just to be ready for appeal. I am so excited. I havent gotten my letter to know if its on the mental or actual POTS yet but i will update when I find out. I know i prayed over those papers before i sent them in and when i went for my exam i prayed i would find favor with the examiner. So all you who are trying.................dont give up!

congrats :)

i received the opposite news in the mail today but honestly it almost made me laugh (something that i realize is easier for me b/c i'm recieving benfits from my LTD and thus the decision won't affect me either way right in the moment financially). it specifically said that they didn't receive records/info from people that i know sent the info and have proof of such. and said that i have pain, which isn't the case at all. hmmm....i'm only annoyed b/c i'll have to deal with the mess of the process and thankful that i don't need the money to pay my rent right now. i also realize that if i had been as anal with the application process as i usually am with things that matter there might have been a different outcome....i had a deadline imposed by my LTD that meant i couldn't get them all my records myself in the midst of being in the hospital, etc..

but enough of that. congrats on your early christmas gift.

Congrats on your approval!!! I have had countless "breakdowns" or whatever you would like to call them, lately. How did you get through all the waiting, etc. I have done everything I can it just stinks that it takes soo long. I hope I have the same luck you did, well not that any of us are lucky to have POTS..or to go through the long disability process...you get the point! CONGRATS once again! :)

That's so great to hear you got through on the first time!!! Wow!! I hope the same thing will happen with me. I applied back in june and have yet to hear anything from them. How did it take?? Just wondering. I'm a bit worried about my disability going through cause i was also applied for medicaid and was denied because they didn't consider POTS to be disabling or a disability. so i don't think my chances are too good, but i'm still hopeing for the best.

I filed Aug 31 this tr and approved today. so 3 1/2 months, i am not sure whether it was POTS or the depression/panic attacks that got it. But who cares.....Im both! Have you called to see if there iis anything you can do to help them as far as Soc Security? I heard that helps. I knew it was gonna take 120 days anyway so the actual waiting just kicked in. But it has been nerve wracking as far as the anticipation.

Congrats, I got approved the second time, first with attorney. Had hearing Sept 9. Approval Sept 17. Check Nov 1. Bank called to say that I was carrying a high balance in my checking account--did I want a money market?? I was approved for POTS. Miriam
