Welcome to HealingWell. We are happy you came over to anxiety and panic for help. We are open to all who want to joins us.
I know it can be a long time before you get SSDI. You are young which makes me think your parents are of an age that would understand your disorders. I am so sorry they do not.
Have you ever invited your Mom to come to a doctor's appointment with you so the Doctor can stress the seriousness of your illness?
For my anxiety and depression I took my adult children to one therapy session so they could ask questions and then I took my husband to 3 sessions so he too could hear first hand from a professional.
Are you up to asking your parents to sit down with you so you can tell them how you feel. They may not know how their comments are kicking up your anxiety.
There are many modalities to choose from to help you with your anxiety. Do you currently have a therapist?
Again a warm welcome and please keep talking to us.

Welcome to A/P. Thanks for sharing your story with us. I moved back in with my mother when I was 31? (bad memory..) and although we love each other we almost ripped each other apart!! If yor parents aren't willing to learn about anxiety & fibro you could maybe leave some information "lying around" the place..they might get a clue. If not, just accept that they don't understand what yu are going through. We do, and we are always happy to listen and offer support. Stick with us okay..we GET anxiety! Sadly...
