I have also posted this on the Bipolar board, but I thought that since my issues cross over to both boards, I would ask here too.
I have a couple of questions for everyone and if you think it's too personal, then by all means don't feel as though you have to answer because you don't.
At my pdoc appt last night, he said that I should apply for Social Security Disabilty because I'm not even close to being able to return to work and it could be a a year or more before I am considering all the issues I have going on.
Has anyone applied for SSD? Did you receive it? How many times were you denied before you were approved (if you were)? Did you have a lawyer involved? How long is the process?
I'm just trying to get a sense of what's involved with this and what to expect. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
