So, if anyone has anything to contribute on either disability or where to live, I'd really appreciate hearing what you have to say.

Sorry to read of your troubles Hedge.
I join the others that suggested checking into SSA benefits and that it is notorious for being rejected on 1st pass. So keep at it.
And my 2 friends that have fibro tell me the hardest thing is to find a doc that knows how to help - that is, after years of being told that the pain they had was phantom before being diagnosed. One friend had the best benefit from alternative medicine, the other found a good immunologist.

Where I can toss something perhaps helpful is to check out these two sites to get ideas of where to consider living. I ended up changing my retirement location (just closed escrow) based on the results of findyourspot.com's survey. Not the exact location, but the region. Be aware that they don't have a database of all areas, so think of their suggestions as a region rather than specific town.

Best wishes to you!
