Joolie,Just to let you in on a little something. My brother has a morphine pump surgically inserted into his body. He falls asleep standing up just peeing TMI sorry but really he can't even stay awake through most conversations, the people he works for are SO nice and let him work whenever he feels like it, about 3 or 4 times a month for half day or less just to keep his medical. He is a mechanic but they cannot let him work on anything anymore because he always falls asleep etc. so they pay him to sweep up around the shop
On top of the morphine pump he takes pain meds orally (he's in constant pain) He is also in and out of the hospital constantly. ALL of his doctors are for him getting disability. Heck who wants someone like him driving to work? My mom actually takes him but they don't know that. HE has been turned down for disability!! Crazy huh? It's almost impossible from my point of view to get disability
He deserves it more than anyone I know! Yes, he has reapplied but has yet to hear anything back
it's been months now. I'm so mad I could scream for them not giving it to him. So according to my story or I mean my brothers it looks like getting disability could be a long grasp for you unless it varies from state to state.

Joolie, Just noticed you were from Scotland! Sounds like they aren't any better than here in the states with giving disability when REALLY needed
I also missed saying I'm so sorry they turned you down. I'll be sending many good thoughts your way that they finally see the light and give you what you so deserve
