After researching several sites, I compiled a list of symptoms associated with both Neurally Mediated Hypotension and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. More and more research is being done on a daily basis and I suspect that it wont be long before this list changes again. When I first got sick the list of symptoms was rather short and seemingly insignificant. It is comforting now to read about some of the postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome symptoms that I still struggle with and can finally say are associated with my disorder.
Because of the overwhelming number of questions that I have received regarding Social Security Disability, I put together a step-by-step guide to assist individuals in applying for and obtaining these benefits. My comprehensive e-book, A Practical Guide to Social Security Disability Benefits is already getting rave reviews!
Listen to Michelle Toole's, author of "A Practical Guide to Social Security Disability Benefits" interview with Brian Therrian of The Disability Digest, a true, real life success story about winning and coping with disability

Thanks, really... If it weren't for your guide, I would not have been able to do this. The reasons why I gave up in the middle of the application back in 2005 were in your guide and validated what I was going through! Reading it really helped me pull everything together before I got the actual application. Your guide also put into words how my disability affects my life and how to appropriately translate that into my SSDI application as well as making it clear how important it is to not feel bad or gloss over how bad my disability is.
My husband, Mike, read your guide before I did because it was a daunting task for me and I didn't want to miss anything or misunderstand anything. When he read it, Mike was able to help me, and understood why he needed to help me; I think that made all the difference in the world! Before, he just kept saying, "You need to get this done... Have you worked on the application at all today?... It isn't that hard, just answer the questions." You really hit on everything in this guide. It also makes me feel a little better about myself because now, I am contributing to our home, financially.
My husband and I followed your guide completely. You really helped me with getting the benefits I deserve. I submitted my application at the end of July, saw two SSDI "specialists" and was finally approved. I want to tell you that I got my first check last week!!!!! Your guide is worth way more than you charge. Thank you so very much.
Thanks again and take care
"Dear Michelle, thank you so much for the help that you sent to me. I won my case! I still do not feel that it is true yet. But I wanted to let you know to keep helping people. You just do not realize how intense some of these judges are and they are not nice either. Not that I expect them to be, but the least they can do is treat you like a human being. Once again thank you. "
"Hi Michelle! I purchased your book back in early February before we applied for disability for my husband. What a great tool! I can't thank you enough - we got our disability on the first try!!!!!! I am certain that your book was instrumental in helping us to organize and present all our evidence in the best possible light. THANK YOU SO MUCH AND GOD BLESS!!!"
"Michelle -I just wanted to write to you to thank you for your help and your book. I purchased it about 6 months ago, and used it to apply for disability for my daughter Lindsey who has been struggling with ME/CFS/Fibromyalgia. On Friday we received notice that she had been approved. First time - 6 months. I give God the glory because this is nothing short of a miracle, but also wanted to let you know that you played a part in this as well.
God Bless you and all that you do to help everyone involved with this disease. Happy New Year to you!"
"Thank you Michelle for
all of your info. I found out last week that I won my disability....I'm
on cloud nine!"
