I just received my Mental Health evaluation for S.S.I disability

Not a good Friday, I just received my Mental Health evaluation for S.S.I disability.

I’m not feeling to good today, actually it’s my stress. I knew I was a stress case, but my MH doctor wrote a lot of things that she never told me about in my disability qualification letter. I wonder if she is hiding anything else from me? She knows that I’ve educated myself off and on in psychology for the last fifteen years. I think because of that she is not talking to me very much, except for how I’m feeling and if I’m taking my meds.

I’m really worried to death and it hurts my stomach when that happens. I know exactly what this stuff means in the letter, but maybe I’m reading to much into it? This is the letter that so wrote.

To Whom It My Concern:

This regarding Mr. ****** (DOB 10/21/67) who is a patient of mine at ****** for Mental Health. He has a diagnosis of Panic Disorder, Manic Depressive Disorder NOS and Attention Deficit Disorder by history. He has a long history anxiety, panic attacks, depressed mood, problems with attention concentration and short term memory. He has problems with poor impulse control, anger and difficulty maintaining interpersonal relationships. His situation is worsened by his chronic homelessness, poor financial situation and lack of occupational identity.

All these issues make it difficult for **** to work in a competitive labor market. They have plagued his his entire adult life and make it difficult for him to find and sustain employment, compelling him to apply for disability.

Man that’s a lot of stuff. What do you guys think about a letter like this?

What do you mean?

If you died, would you want the world calling it that shit?

Ten bucks is the only thing I’ve truely spent on myself for the past 5 years. I got the money from ads on a blog that it no longer.

Yep! 40 minutes left.

are you really that homelessness have a poor financial situation ?

where are you posting from. etc..
Some libraries have 4 hour internet and others have only one.
damn i should do that, seems easier than working, broseph

need more backround info.

I live off of $140 a month general assistance and that is all. With my car insurance, gas and a small fine. I have no money left. This is why I’m desserately appy for disability so I can have some stability in my life.

The process takes three years and is unbelieve the buerocracy that is involved. It’s not like the old days, you have to hire a lawyer and fight it in court.

this should be stickied for all non AV fags
jesus no wornder you only have 226 posts you muyst get bored of ot after like 10 seconds

I coudln’t afford to look for work if I wanted to. Think about it. gas is 3.50 and I only get $140 a month with bills to pay.

I don’t understand the comment, but yes I spend very little time online.
it will take a while but when you get ssi it will be retroactive.

you will get a big ass check to blow on drugs.
Dude, are you shitting us?

Thread about how to use Paypal.
Another thread talks about you possibly getting an STD after a long night of partying?

it will take a while but when you get ssi it will be retroactive.

You are correct, but the drugs you are mistaken.

sell vehicle, ride bus. ???? profit. Then get a job.

That written to make a point that very few got here. I was psychoanalysing some of you.

How do we know you aren’t doing the same thing now?

I sleep in my car, and lets not get off track about the letter and my anxiety attacks and manic drepression etc.
San Jose, California… unemployed with $140 a month. Are you a mexican? Go hop on the back of some trucks…

Be cause I don’t plan on comming back to this forum. I’m going to forget forums altogether and get a basketball for the park.

wat

that sucks. how old are you?
BTW, there is no way in hell that the letter is real. There is a typo "is is"

You’re telling me that your doctor didn’t proof read it first?

The Reason Most Of You Will Never Succeed In Life Is Because You Have No Respect For Anyone.

Everyone You Meet Won’t Put Up With It And Will Walk Away.

Good Bye!

yeah, hes bi-polar for sure.
How does that make you any different from the rest of people in California?

Yet you have a post that says you just purchased this?

That shit is like $70, brah.
I have pretty much the exact same diagnosis, yet I still work for a living
So how did you get to this point? What happened that got you from a functional member of society to applying for disability insurance?

You should be posting this in the Asylum forum, not the Main…more sympathetic audience imo.
Main forum –> Asylum

Asylum rules apply from here forward.

I think she’s accurately explaining in a conscise way what she’s observed during the appointments you’ve had. That is her job, to analyze you, and based on her experience.

Is anything she said untrue? I doesn’t look untrue to me, and in-fact that letter is fantastic in terms of applying for SSI. It’s a great letter for that purpose.

Just ignore him, he’s ignorant.

Absolutely agree, I went through the same thing. I was disabled in 2000, but didn’t receieve approval until 2004. So that’s 4 years I lived barely scrapping by.

now that we are in the Asylum..

Once he can afford healthcare through Medicare, he’ll likely improve substantially. He’ll have access to better counseling services, medications and doctors.
It’s also possible she’s trying to help you out and put a few extra things in there that could or could not be part of your problems. That way you have less problems continuing with SSI.
My question is, are you using this as a "get out of jail free card" or are you getting help to actually overcome all this stuff? I haven’t seen a single "problem" that cannot be cured or managed with medication and therapy. I mean really…. getting disability for panic attacks? I get anxious fairly often, but, I can still make it into work. Work actually helps me, because anxiety is only as powerful as you let it be. The more attention you give it, the worse it is. When I’m on break, if I feel anxious, I’ll go back to work and it’ll get better because my mind isn’t on it.
i suffer from anxiety and bipolar disorder. i would qualify for disability due to my inability to hold jobs because of my anxiety and bipolar disorder combined (going into depressive phases). so what did i do? i went on a new medicine. i seem to be a lot better now. try something new with the money you get from ssi.

With that logic it’s like a person like me telling you there is no such thing as panic attacks because I never in my life have had one.

What now?

There are millions of people who suffer with problems that a medication and counseling can’t help — in-fact medications are the 4th leading cause of death in the U.S. They save a lot of lives, but they take a lot too. And counseling while obviously helpful to millions is also unhelpful to many as well.

His situation isn’t your situation. He applied for disability and wrote about it on OT because it’s obviously more severe than your downregulated, short-sighted, minimized, condescending version of "panic attacks." (JMO)

I’m glad doing something helps you manage your panic problems, but psychiatric problems aren’t something you "think away, or wash away while cleaning a toilet." People can have infections and other diseases causing those attacks as well as other problems which certainly dissolves your quote of "anxiety is only as powerful as you let it be.", so it’s important to not minimize a case and show compassion and remain open minded.

This "We’re all capable/all powerful" thing isn’t truth. Reality is, people get sick with things they often can’t control, just as much as those they get sick with and could have prevented. It’s not my place to decide which is which.
IMO this should be deleted as I think it’s a hoax.

There are multiple typos in the "doctors" letter.
Well maybe they sent him a paper letter and he retyped it?

Once he can afford healthcare through Medicare, he’ll likely improve substantially. He’ll have access to better counseling services, medications and doctors.

I dont remember asking you a god damn thing

that sounds very logical. like he was trying to transcibe it

This is the asylum not the main forum, it would be wise to change your attitude immediately.
Hey brother.. appeal this and hire a lawyer.

If you do a bit of research, you’ll find that most lose their first SSI attempts. This is common.

Why do you care?

By the way, sorry if I came off arrogant in my last response to you.

Is he going to read a post that says "Get a job" and then think "Great idea, why didn’t I think of that!" ??

Why ask him a question that you know he can’t answer, since he obviously isn’t "him." We try to offer advice and suggestions, but only the person asking can "fix" their problem. The Asylum is meant to help people fix their own problems or at least point them in a direction that can help lead them to someone more experienced/trained that can offer counsel.
