I am visiting from the Ulcerative Colitis forum. I am 33 and have UC and depression and Anxiety. I am non lexapro for my mood disorder and other for my UC. I applied for SS in April of this year. They just had me see one of there therapists for an evaluations. She really felt I need to be on SS at this time in my life even though I am young. I can't handle the work force any longer. I have worked since I was 16yrs with no breaks in between. I developed UC at 16 yrs of age also. So its taken a toll on me physically and mentally. So I applied for SS first time this yr. I just wanted to share my story and to let Robert know you are not alone. SS is a tough road to go down and they do want you to give up but don't. You know when its time to give your body a rest mentally and physically.
I tried to claim disability but got turned down
Wishing you all the very best
