Congratulations ... I know its a sobering moment when you are approved but congratulations all the same .

I remember when I was approved . Some people I know had a tough time but I was approved the first time over the phone .

You should feel relieved -- just curious what state you did your application in.  I too (while in NY) was approved the first time and IIRC within four months of filing.  That was 8 years ago, and like you right before Christmas which made it kind of extra nice.

Congratulations!  That should take some of the pressure off!
It goes like this

The minor fall, the major lift,

I'm getting my head around it right now. It's hard to believe that it's over, and I can finally choose a direction in my life after almost 18 months of not knowing. I'm not sure what that direction will be...but I don't have to worry anymore. 2 letters of denial and a letter from my attorneys office to SS asking for a Decision Based on the Records.
