Pay very very close attention to this when deciding on filing for SS or not. Make sure your filing is as documentated as is possible, including important medical information.

Whether or not you get approval may well depend on just how life limiting it is for you and your abilities to do even basic day to day functions/care.....BTW.....don't be an idject like I was. I would say, but I can still do it, it just takes forever to do anything. Wrong, wrong, wrong :!:

What would usually happen is that it would be so exhausting and overwhelming that I would very often NOT do things I needed for that day to day care - such as eating.

Folks, we pay into Social Security with every single paycheck we receive. I know I sure did winding up handing over money for
from 1970 - 2008.....38 years of contributing. So it is anything but a "gift," "entitlement" or welfare. Remember, you paid into the system and by rights you should have the benefits from doing so.

If you need some help or some tips, we have a fellow that is fantastic in dealing with SS and has been such a help to so many.
