Lyme disease left you physically and financially destitute?
Draw Disability for Lyme Disease.
Lyme disease is an aggressive bacterial infection that is transmitted through a tick bite. An estimated 300,000 people are infected each year in the U.S. Lyme disease usually starts with flu-like symptoms but, if left untreated, it can lead to heart disease, joint swelling, extreme pain, anxiety, and confusion.
Because symptoms can mimic a host of mental and physical conditions, many people see numerous doctors before they finally get an accurate diagnosis. By this time, the disease may be causing long-term, chronic health issues that severely impact your ability to work and carry out routine activities.
If you or a loved one is suffering from Lyme disease and has been (or is expected to be) out of work for at least a year, you may be able to obtain Social Security Disability for Lyme disease. Getting approved for benefits can be difficult, but most people find that it is worth the effort. A monthly Disability check (and possibly a lump sum of back pay) can bring some financial stability to an unsettling situation.
