I've got to tell you, the average wait time (I believe) is two years! Thats how long it took me to get on. (Not for diabetes). I don't really know the answer for your question though. Make sure and keep all your records, they want to see lots and lots of doctors appointments etc. Also wanted to let you know that almost everyone gets a denial the first time they apply, if you do apply, don't think this is the end, keep appealing, and then you'll need to get a lawyer specializing in SSI. Maybe you could just call a lawyer like, Don Becker at Becker law offices and ask them your question. Thats about all I can say to help you. Gooood luck, Sorry your on so many meds. I hope you feel better sometime in the future. I know how you feel, I've been there! Louella
