Yeah. Anxiety and fear. Tell me about it. Many of us have also been through the suicidal stages. I know I have. Now and then I still think about it but, hey, it's really not worth it. I mean, like I'm always saying, keep hanging around in life because something good is defenitely going to happen. I promise you! You just gotta be there when it does.
Anyway, I have not gotten disabilty for CH's (Mine have always been episodic so they'd just laugh me right outta there), but as Georgia says (BTW, Hi Georgia! Thanks so much for the kind emails!) others here have gotten it and maybe they can help you some with a bit of advice.
I know that personally, I love to work also. It pisses me off to no end that CH's can totally disrupt my work. Mad as hell right now about that actually. I do not think you are lazy or looking for an easy way out if you suffer from CH's (Chronic?).
Don't take crap like that to heart or listen too much to people who don't know their ass from a hole in the ground. They might have ants crawling out of it or something crazy like that :)
I hope that you get it right outta the gate the first time. But, as experience will tell, it usually is pretty hard to get disabilty. At least the 1st or 2nd time. You just gotta hang in there and don't let the bastards wear you down!
Good luck with your CH's. So, hang in there!
Love, Michael B
