  • I won on second try.


    Just a note to encourage you that are trying for disability to keep fighting. I was denied my first time and then 12 months later I won, it was my second try. I did not have a lawyer, but a great uro and also the new lsiting for IC. I sent a ton of information and I wrote a very long personal letter,letting them know what IC, Vulvodynia had taken from me and I really put my heart into that letter. I feel it is a victory for all ICer's that I won.

    Good luck to all of you and may God bless you.

    Congrats Rene,
    The one thing you have told us is just because they dont approve you the first time, it's not the end of the game.

    Congrats again,

      Only a very few will be approved on the first try; many are even denied the second time around. So nobody should give up after being refused.


      Stay safe

        Congratulations, Rene. To others tying for disability, don't give up after the second denial. It took me three times. I sent tons of articles, medical records, and even my personal daily diary.
