Worried about SSD

So my SSD\SSI hearing is July 2. I am worried they will turn me down because of various reasons. Mainly because I am verbally intelligent and co e off an normal. But I have a lot of problems with stress and day to day living. My doctorwrote a letter supporting my claim with a list of my conditions. My psychiatrist and therapist tells social servic e s Ican’t work but never submitted to social security. I’m afraid that by talking normal they will deny me again.

Good luck. Don’t downplay how hard things are for you. That’s the hardest thing for me. I’m always “fine” around people I don’t know and I have a really hard time telling people exactly how hard things are.

I agree with @LED.
I write down things n read them to myself before I go to those kind of things because I somehow tend to forget to say certain things otherwise

So you’re trying to get SSDI for the first time?

Second. I didn’t appeal first time.

I’m sorry you’re having to go to a hearing. I agree with the list idea. Bring a list of all your problems with you

It is a good idea. I will try to remember.

I have a hearing coming up too. I hope it works out.

@ZombieMombie, @TheVoices, I wish you both the best. If you fail, get a lawyer who knows the county and specializes in SSD/SSDI. That’s what I had to do. He was so good at getting together paperwork that I didn’t say a single word at the hearing but was approved before they’d even finished going over my medical conditions. I was concerned that having a graduate degree would effect me, but they didn’t even get that far. I have my fingers crossed for y’all!

I was on a disability lawyers website a few years ago. It said that most people with this kind of condition eventually get disability even if the get denied at first.
