Getting Social Security Benefits for Your Depression
Sometimes it is hard to find words for depression. It has been described as "a black curtain coming down on one's life." Those that suffer from depression often feel as though they have no energy, have difficulty concentrating or are irritable all the time for no reason. Others feel sad, down or hopeless for weeks at a time. This is not something that is just "made up in the head," but instead it's a very real illness that requires some kind of treatment. Though the symptoms of depression can vary from person to person, if your depression interferes with your daily life and ability to work, you may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. The information below was obtained from www.depression.com .
The fact is that most people with depression never seek help, even though the majority will respond in some way to treatment. With mental illnesses, there is often no hard evidence or proof to show that the condition exists. If someone is physically sick, it is often verifiable with blood tests or x-rays, but with a mental illness things are more complicated. That is why it is important to see a mental health provider regularly. An accurate and continuous record of your illness will strengthen your disability case. Mental health professionals can be expensive and finding one you are comfortable with is not always an easy task. If you think you may have a mental condition, but cannot afford treatment, please refer to the "low cost/no cost health care" link. For more information about depression, see www.depression.com. Getting a mental health provider and visiting them regularly is the most valuable thing you can do for your Social Security case.
