    A mixed blessing for sure. I'm glad you were approved.

    Congratulations. I know that can be a long, discouraging battle. Hopefully you can turn your energy to better things now.

    That is great news.
    How long did it take?
    Now you can focus on your well being.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).

    yea, we have tried all of it with no positive results. Rheumy wanted to try the new lupus drug( the name escapes me, fog? haha ) however the insurance company denied it. glad the ins. co. knows more about medicine than the doctors, wow, sounds like I'm starting to get frustrated, down boy:~} I've been on generic plaquinel from the start, if it has ever done anything for me I don't know it. I will say one thing since getting off the prednisone I can feel all the pain in my body that it was hiding or whatever it was doing.

    Yes, insurance companies are a pain. Try the new rheumy and ask him/her to write a stronly worded letter to them - maybe it will work.

    Yeah Jim, they probably haven't added it to their "approved list" yet. The insurance company probably just needs a bit of prodding from doctors and the pharmy company, along with a polite, concise letter from a patient... 'course, if you're like me, you might have a bit of trouble coming up with "polite" words... tic

    It took me a year and a half. I was pretty fortunate to be able to draw ca. disability for about one year and have been hitting my retirement since. I'm to darn young to be drawing out of my retirement but I gotta live. I didn't buy the book but I followed the advice from an ad I picked up on here, the dissability digest, I hope its ok to use the name on here just in relation to my story, but it did help in my confidence filling out the forms.
    On a seperate note, does any body have problems with their doctors refusing to fill out paperwork ie: dissability forms for both state and fed? My rheumy's policy is that he does not do them. I have already got a lead on another rheumy which is actually about 15 min. closer for me.

    What good is a doctor who won't fill out the paperwork? I know most charge something for their time to do it, but jeez! How rotten that you have to start over again with a new doc. Hopefully he/she will do a better job for you overall.
