    Early morning @Ssdi I don’t have the answer for you. But others will. I just nudged my way in to welcome you to our community.  I’ve had spine operations and have mental health issues. 
    Once you get help support and advice. Perhaps you would join us in our coffee lounge and games room. 
    Really hope to see you there. Ada x

    Hi @reeraiderette, sorry to hear you've been struggling with your SSDI claim, that sounds really difficult to deal with. I'm afraid I'm not very familiar with the process as most of us on here are from the UK, but I hope you get a better result at federal court.

    I hope our little community can offer some support should you need it :)
