FAQ 8. I have to complete disability forms. How do I start?
When completing the forms and describing your illness experience, it is often recommended that you describe your “worst day”. ME and FM are fluctuating illnesses, with bad days and better days. Include details of the accommodations you use at home to support activities of daily living. For example, you cannot cook three days in a row, or you use pre-made meals or pre-cut produce; you use a shower chair or cannot stand to shower, only bath or sink-wash.
There are some agencies that can help you with completing the forms or navigating the process, such as:
Disability Alliance BC https://disabilityalliancebc.org/category/publications/help-sheets/)
TAPS (Together Against Poverty Society), Victoria https://www.tapsbc.ca/
Action Committee for People with Disabilities, Victoria, https://actioncommittee.ca/
