First of all, of course, I'm tired. I hardly feel like even posting this. But besides that obvious hurdle... I was reading that most claims are rejected at first and often take a year... is there a group or entity you can hire to help do the paperwork, recommend doctors, and take care of the process to increase your likelihood of getting disability? I don't know if I can do this on my own and waiting a year seems to, well, suck. I moved out to LA on my own 3 years ago, no family here... no family to go back to really, just my mom left and she is in a tiny apartment on government assistance... er, which has nothing to do with my topic, sorry.. rambling.
