    The SSA is sending me to a psycologist for a mental exam. I am filing for physical disabiliies, weak muscles, possible cmt. Does this sound right what they are doing?

    Actually it does make sense, unfortunately. DH gets a VA disability and he has to go to a head shrinker also.

    yes this is how they do things. it takes along time , they try to weed people out cause they know alot people cant wait as long as they take to give it to you. average is 2 yrs . i know someone that was paralized from waiste down and they denied he twice.

    [:O] I first got ssdi in 1992 when broke my neck when a 650lb. carpet came out of my truck and landed on my head [:O],my lawyers applied for me and I got my first check 3 months later. I started doing part time work in 2002 and it was stopped, then in 2005 I got a infected inner ear and it took away my hearing and loss of balance, I tried to apply myself and was turned down so I went back to the lawyer that got it for me the first time and 4-5 months later I got approved [:D]. So what I learned is to get a good lawyer that knows the system [;)]. BYT, he said it was because the doctor didn't give a proper report to SS.

    this summer I was finally approved I got a attorney because after a year and a half I was tired of the whole thing the attorney can only get paid if you win and they are limited in what they can get paid I recovered back pay for the entire year and a half as they go back to the day you applied
