I'm 31 and have two small children, ages 4 and 2. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in November. I also have multiple issues with my back, ie: spondylothesis, stenosis, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, and a fractured vertabrae. I also suffer from clinical depression and generalized anxiety disorder. Up until now I have worked full time and resisted going on disability, but the effort of just getting out of bed in the morning is exhausting, let alone putting in an 8 hour day, 1 1/2 hour commute (round trip), and taking care of my babies. I was wondering what expereiences anyone has had with the process of getting SSD payments and any advice you might have to offer. Thanks in advance for your help!!!
