Hi Tracy I’ve been diagnosed with fibromyalgia as well also have been diagnosed with Lyme’s disease Bartonella and babisiosis. I have two daughters luckily they are both in college now I was able to get on disability the first time I tried and that was probably 8 years ago but like a lot of people said living on social security check is ridiculous when you think about the amount of medication you have to pay. The amount I pay for my medications each month actually cost more then my disability check. I feel fortunate that my mother and father have been able to help me and seek treatment for me. Treating fibromyalgia is kind of like treating Lyme’s disease. A lot of people that have fibromyalgia are sometimes misdiagnosed and actually do have a chronic Lyme’s disease. The one thing I did when I went for my first meeting to get my disability I copied every doctor’s note every blood work every x-ray everything and I brought it in a box with me and I said it on his desk and said here you go I got a call two days later that said he told me I was approved and was backdating it like 3 or 4 years. Once again I feel so fortunate and lucky that my journey through security and disability here in the United States was a positive one although not enough money but at least I know I have a set amount coming in each month. They also did put me on permanent disability. I hope and pray you get the help you need there are a lot of us out here dealing with these autoimmune diseases that people look at you and you look fine but the inside you’re dying. I have finally learned have to cover everything up and fake it, because people judge you when they don’t see if there’s a physical illness.
