I had a roommate years ago with epilepsy. He applied for ssi disability and was denied so appealed. Got up to court before supreme Court and they said there is a rule in ssi disability that states uncontrolled seizures is an automatic win. Do realize disability is contingent on having worked enough to qualify for it and then is 40 per cent of what you previously made. There is supplemental security income which can add to the regular ssi if you have very low ssi. Some states have help for disabled. Hope this info helps you in making a decision on whether or not to keep on with disability request.

My father unfortunately was diagnosed just before dieing from a stroke.

I have had a CPAP machine for many years and never became sick. I do clean the mask every night using CPAP wipes and make sure the water is changed every night. I rarely clean the hose. Ido have a heated hose so moisture does not collect in it.
