Hello gerbil: I'm sorry I can't tell you whether or not you can get disability. Perhaps other PC members will have some thoughts they can share with regard to this. In the meantime, however, I noticed this is your first post here on PC. So... welcome to PsychCentral. I hope you find PC to be of benefit.

P.S. The other forum, here on PC, where you might consider posting with regard to this concern is the insurance & finances forum. Here's a link:

I say it's worth a shot. Apply for it, that's the best way to find out.

Get a free consultation with a lawyer and see if they will take your case. I have a lawyer and have been denied twice by letter. Next is court date and thank goodness I have a lawyer for that.

we cant tell you i f you can win or lose disability. thats for you and your social security office to say.

what I can tell you is that since your location is in the USA you are free to apply, anyone in the USA can .........apply .......... for disability at any time. then after social security processes your application you will receive a letter from social security telling you if you are awarded disability or if you are denied disability.

my suggestion contact your nearest social security office, they will be able to answer any questions you may have about this.

when i applied i had 3 doctors write letters and fill out forms for the SSDI. It worked very well for me and I was awarded fairly soon after like 5 months or so.
Good luck, if you get denied don't give up, get a lawyer to facilitate the process.

I applied on my own and got approved for benefits. Although I had been hospitalized four times and had a long history of psychiatric care. I had detailed records of my hospital visits and had their addresses and phone numbers and the dates of my admissions. I still have all that paperwork, I may be a bit of a hoarder but at least for this it paid off. Hopefully this information is helpful.
