Anyone Live Near Raleigh,NC Who Has Received Social Security?
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

I finally have a hearing date for June!! Anyone live near Raleigh who has been through the process? How did you fare? I'm using a lawyer from the advocator group.

I live in Wake Forest, but have not had to go through that process. I was pleased with the manner in which my case was handled. I am glad you have a lawyer. That should help. I pray that you get your benifits. All the stress is terrible for Fibro, I think the only thing worse for me is the constant atmospheric changes caused by the weather. Good luck Friend.

I agree, Andre
Medical Documentation is the key factor regarding the SSA. Get as much documentation as you can from your PCP & all Specialists. I completed the application along with all supporting medical documentation, which was a tedious ordeal.

I wish you good luck at your hearing. The key to Social Security is medical records that document that you cannot work because of your diagnosis. I hope you have enough. And I hope you have a good judge in s good mood.
