Lyme Life, forced to change careers!


#1

My name is Stephanie, I’ve had Lyme disease since the age of 10.
Now I’m in my 40’s and with a list of medical disorders, I still can’t qualify for SSI or disability. I’ve recently had Rhabdomyolysis (severe muscle weakness and inflammation)to the point of partial paralysis.

Hey Bamagirl,
From all reports obtaining ssi or disability can be VERY difficult, some people (including myself) have needed to obtain the services of a lawyer to apply and receive the payment. There are some law firms who offer a ‘no win, no fee’ service and I had to engage such a company to fight on my behalf after being rejected by the department. Thankfully I am now in receipt of the payment. Without the lawyer’s involvement I would still be fighting to obtain the payment in my opinion.
