So here I go

I have an appointment on the 30th for ssdi. My symptoms and diagnosis/med history should be enough for ssdi. My buddy says I should go full retard during the interview for faster benefits. Any thoughts and advice would be great. Money will help me as I can barely keep afloat awhile handleing symptoms. Any experience applying for benefits much appreciated, thx.

My symptoms are disavling enough so I don’t think I have to go full retard.

I never wanted ssi or ssdi, that’s why ive been trying to work and struggling to keep afloat the past four years off temp agencies. I would like to not struggle as much with paying bills right now though and I don’t have any support financially from anybody but me, myself, and I.

I recommend you review this page on the topic:
