    Hi Grinch,
    The only experience I have with getting SSI is from when my DH, who has chronic pain, not IC, applied for it, a few years back.
    They turned my husband down, so he hired a lawyer who specializes in getting SSI and that did the trick.
    I know others have posted here about the SSI process, so you might want to take a browse through the site.
    I hope you get some helpful answers.
    Good luck,
    Laurie
