It's really important that you have continuous care for your conditions. Most disability lawyers will not ask to be paid until you get your first back pay check.
Quoting Coupon Lady:" curious why do you need a lawyer and a judge.?"

I have panic attacks when I leave my house, and it's really making it hard for me to work lately."yes you can, i have issues too and I actually go for my hearing in 2 wks. you need to start seeing a dr first off so u can getit all updated etc, go to the socialsecurity website and file for ssi and for disablity. they will send you to their drs (which will deny you they always do for the most part) you will probably get denied and then start the appeal process, find a local lawyer that will accept the case (most will accept them if they think they will win them). If you have questions you can pm me.

Because if so, I'll just be poor and try to find another way to do something."u donot need a lawyer unless your case gets denied....but u need to be actively seeking treatment (therapy/medication). u need recent documentation that your ''disabilities'' effect your quality of life & your ability to work (even when recieving treatment). U will not get awarded ssi , if u arent attempting to get help for your disorders.....and when u do get awarded it, they may make u have another adult that is ''mentally stable'' be in charge of your funds. They will not take your daughter away if u are seeking help & dont pose a risk to her, yourself , or others.
