"Hi Out there!! I did not get approved for disability and I am in process of suing.
Just wanted to share a few tips w you incase you try to apply for disability.
Make sure you have as much evidence as you can get!!
Get ALL medical records from you doctors on anything and everything you can get to show you are being treated for your illness.
Never call up and complain if you get denied! Anything you say they will use it against you to deny your claim!!
Never, Never write a letter to them on why you are disabled!! They will use that against you too!! If you write them a letter, they will say that you are well enough to write letters so you should be working, you are not disabled!
Always get a friend, spouse, etc. to make the phone calls or write letter for you if you must!!
Make sure you tell your doctors EVERYTHING-- ALL of your complaints, symptoms, etc. You want them to write down as much as they can!! I know some Doctors only write one word answers on forms, see if you can get them to be specific, especially on the disability forms!
Get the medical notes from your doctors and review and copy them before you send them in! Review them and make sure all the info is correct and they don't leave anything out!
Keep all your Prescriptions!!! Make copies of them and send them in as evidence also!!
All these things happened to me, that is why I didn't get approved. I didn't express myself enough to my doctors and they didn't write down all my symptoms. I didn't think they needed all that info--but they do!!
Good luck, and hopefully my Lawyer will win my case for me!!"
