The marathon disability process
I have probably talked about this countless times over the years. The social security disability process is a marathon not a sprint. However, the reality is that everyone struggles. It’s tough to sit here and have to wait a year or even two years for the even remote possibility that you might get some disability benefits.
The reality is, you’re tired. You still keep getting bills. You need more money for food. You’re probably really tired jumping back-and-forth from different place to different place because you want to place a steak for you to rely on others. It is frustrating
I am not here to tell you that there is a guarantee you’re going to get disability benefits. What I am going to tell you is that you almost have to go through the entire process in its entirety for a positive outcome to even possibly occur. That might not be very comforting but unfortunately it is the reality of the disability process and you need to be prepared for it.
So, in the meantime, educate yourself on what you need to do. Make sure you go to the doctor’s appointments. Make sure you do what your doctor says. You want to make sure you do everything possible to put your case in the most positive light possible.
