Lizze’s Doctors are backing disability.
Lizze went to her neurologist this morning as I previously posted. The topic at the appointment turned to disability. This is something we haven’t discussed with the doctors until today. Her doctors are in complete support of disability for Lizze. They said that her migraines alone would qualify her in their experience. However, factoring in the fibro and everything else she has to contend with, there is no way she could work. We even spoke to her shrink and she is behind this as well.
The interesting part is that because we apparently did everything right along the way, it should make the process a whole lot easier. Lizze saw the very best doctors and the right ones for what she needed. She was diagnosed with Fibro by one of the top rheumatologists in the country. All the testing was done to eliminate ALL other possibilities. So all the proper testing was done and the diagnosis is solid.
We did the same thing for everything else she is dealing with. The process took years and years but we wanted to make sure that she was properly diagnosed. Lately, I have been suggesting a second opinion but honestly, everything was done right in the first place and all her doctors agree with the diagnosis. We may look for other treatment options but right now, everything that can be done is being done.
She has been dealing with this for a good potion of the last decade so this is welcomed news. I don’t relish the idea of her being on disability anymore the she does. However, it’s there for people like her. So we are finally going to apply and hopefully she will get approved and we can start to move forward.
