Experience with Private Disability Coverage

For anyone reading in the US, do you have any experience or advice for proving a claim for CFS under private disability coverage for short term disability coverage (at least for the moment)? Specifically, unfortunately we are covered under the famous company u*n*u*m.

My doctor is very willing to assist with all paperwork and forms, I do have swollen lymph nodes (especially right now), but don't really have any other "markers" - at least that I'm aware of (which granted is limited knowledge).

I guess everyone can tell how my doc appointment went............I will follow up more tomorrow. Right now, I can't get past the anxiety that I might get denied.


  1. Ugh! I feel for you!! Yes the anxiety of not knowing if you will be accepted in an application for disability is overwhelming ... just another thing to add to the situation unfortunatly. If you like I will copy and paste your request for info onto my blog? Maybe someone reading my blog will have helpful info for you? I seem to have a lot of readers in the US. Are you on facebook? There is a whole other community of 'us' on there ...
    At least is seems your Dr is on your side which is a really good start!!

  2. Lee Lee - that would be wonderful - thank you so much for the offer of help - I honestly need any feedback or suggestions possible.
