Reply To: My CIDP Story/Asking for Advice

February 21, 2017 at 8:23 am

First let me say I’m so sorry you are going through this experience. My husband has also been diagnosed with CIDP and the only advice I can give you is go ahead and file for the SSI. My husband was denied disability because we kept waiting on an improvement and apparently there is some kind of time limit of unemployment that allows them to say you voluntarily quit working. Don’t wait to apply, you can always discontinue the assistance if you do get better. Fortunately for us, he was nearing retirement age and I have a wonderful job with great benefits.

You are in my prayers.
