Well, wouldn't you know, I got the determination letter in the mail today. Good ole government LOL.
I consider myself extremely lucky to have received my SSDI approval within 5 months of applying. I don't exactly know what was the deciding factor in their decision, but I'm sure as heck glad there was something there! I know I'm one of the lucky ones to have received it so quickly. I think a big part of it is because of my age....I'm 56, not to mention the grace of God.
Thanks all for your comments. And to all who are waiting longer than 5 months and battling tooth and nail for approval, you have my best wishes and prayers.
