Brwneyedchica Posted March 31, 2006 Report Share Posted March 31, 2006 I've went over all the old posts regarding the whole process of applying for Social Security/Disability. I called the only Attorney in my area who specializes in this issue and they advised me to go ahead and get the ball rolling and fill out the first paperwork and then contact them after that point. So I'm going to try and access my complete medical records from all of my ER visits, all of my doc appts and results from all blood work and tests. I'm slightly confused about this... can I actually send these copies to SS myself, and maybe mail it to them so that they have to sign for it? Has anyone applied online? I found this site https://s044a90.ssa.gov/apps6z/i3369/ee001-fe.jsp it seems legitimate. Is it better not to file online? I just don't know how i'm going to even get my medical records let alone go sit at the SS office. From what I read it seems as though I should have all of my medical records in tow when I fill out the paperwork so I can list what testing i've had completed and when. I've been severely nauseated and vomiting for several days and nothing helps. I went and saw my GI doc today and he told me from his stand point that there is nothing else that he can do and that it's a neurological problem in my body. He wants me to go back and see the POTS specialist again, which i got an appt for April 17. I was on a medical leave from work for a month and I literally made it to work for a maximum of 5 hours a day on 6 occasions and I paid dearly for it. After the doc told me that he really can't do anything else for me I started crying, and he just kinda shuffled his papers around and cleared his throat and I felt so stupid. I told him that I'm thinking of filing for disability and he thought it was a good idea. He said he would fill out paperwork for FMLA time from work so that I don't get fired, but is it better that I just quit? I'm at the point where I get really sick for any of the time that I make it to work. But I did start paying in for LTD in November... so is it better to try and keep my job and try and get some kind of LTD? I'm kinda confused about all of this... Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
