Thank you to everyone who shared their story of getting approved for disability.

The majority of responses in this survey came from people diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome”. We also received responses from people diagnosed with Lyme, Environmental Illness, Fibromyalgia, Depression, and related conditions.

These conditions often overlapped, and most people were approved based on a combination of illnesses. Nearly all responses were from the US, with one from Canada and one from the UK.
